Dear Mr. Swaminathan, All these songs are down loadable, I tried to download and it is working. Perhaps there might have been some server error when you tried. Please try again. If you still feel any difficulty, Please let me know. I will think of some alternative.

Dear Shri Hariharan, Thanks for adding new songs to this collection. Item 9 is very nicely rendered. Who is the composer? I guess that it is by OVK. Item 25 is the Dikshithar krithi 'Ehi Annapoorne' in Punnaagavaraali. Item 41 - Is it in Chakravaakam? Item 120 - Raaga Ranjani Item 125 - It is Raama ninnu nammina. Item 131 - Madhyamavathi The Dharmavathi RTP is very enjoyable. Can you please tell me the accompaniment details. (the mridangist gave excellent support to the vocalist).

    Are we also not "Aam aadmi "?

    A thought provoking posting by Ms. Sivapriya krishnan in her blog was very appealing to me. She is a multifaceted personality. Sivapriya Krishnan is  an MBA with a wide corporate experience in blue chip companies for 20 years with Marketing and Branding being the specialisation and is also a visiting faculty in business schools. She is ardent and passionate about Carnatic Music and is a singer,student and writer on that subject. In addition to this she holds an MA in Music from the Madras University and is a Certified Professional Coach for Human Resource Development and Training from Results Coaching (Franklin Covey partner) Her writing about "Iyengars" was very interesting. ( I will publish it next ) So I am publishing this to the benefit of my readers.

    Budget 2010 and " AAM AADMI"
    .............................. By Sivapriya Krishnan

    The finance Minister Mr. Pranab Mukherjee and the rest of the hoi polloi sitting in discussion with Prannoy Roy, the other day at the NDTV Budget discussion,were raving about the excellent fiscal measures and the pivotal role that the government is playing in agriculture, FDI etc etc. Alongside Pranabji also said that the budget has been made keeping in mind the " AAM AADMI".

    In defining this "aam aadmi" the government and the economic hoi polloi definitely seem to have a disconnect with actual ground reality. Who in their view is this person? Looks like they are still in the hunt for this so called "mythical underdog" !!

    AAM AADMI is the not the one below or just above the poverty line, as the government still thinks. AAM AADMI is not just the one still on the road, daily wage earners and the like.

    AAMAADMI's are also People travelling by two wheelers or small and medium cars, people who work 24x7 for their roti , kapda, makaan and EMI ( for House and vehicles ) , save for their sons education, save for their daughters education and prestigious affair called marriage ( these girls give a double hit!!), be they "blue collared" or "white collared" , each according to his merit and desire, ..... are all
    "aam aadmi.(s)" ..... ' the janata' !!

    This aamaadmi has no great political or socialite clout, still believes in rooted middle class family values, earns his holidays and does not get the time to use it, uses his skill and qualification to do his job, is in the constant fear of being thrown out of his job at any point in time, also gets thrown out at times and seeks fresh jobs, sinks into loans for house or has to pay hefty advances and rentals for a cubhole of a house , pays EMI's for ACs, fridge, microwave , washing machine , battles with heavy medical bills for the family and extended family ........ ooPhs .... but yet , he or she goes about the task like a true "Karma Yogi" with the hope of seeing light at the end of the dark tunnel which grows and grows ........!

    Dal from 30-70-120 rs., oil from 60-190 rs., sugar from 15- 25- 50 rs., petrol well above 60rs., onions from 8- 15- 24 rs., potatoes well above 30rs., tomatoes 25-30rs., all in a span of a year and a half, Mr.Finance and Prime Minister ;
    : are these not some basic indicators of the injury done to the aamaadmi's pocket or is it some strange bullet from no where?

    To top this list, from this budget onwards, the prices of all consumer household durables have gone up. Cars are costlier, petrol even more costlier, food costliest, thereby creating that spiralling web of inflation around this "aamaadmi" as a noose around his neck, who is already into a debt trap, in which he/she can neither live peacefully nor die peacefully !!! ( akin to the Don Loin's joke of liquid oxygen !! -liquid use' jeene nahin dega, oxygen use' marne nahin dega).

    These days even death is very costly, considering the cost of a funeral and the rites thereof !!

    And here we have our esteemeed PM making statements on pricing in the hallowed portals of world meets and summits like the one below :
    Quote : made by The PM, from todays papers:
    Any increase in prices does hurt some section of people, but we have to take a long term view. We cannot save people from inflation if we follow all along populist fiscal policies,' Manmohan Singh said. He was speaking to the media Monday on board the special aircraft that brought him back to New Delhi from his three-day official visit to Saudi Arabia.

    'The direct effect of the increase in fuel prices on wholesale prices will be no more than 0.4 percent,' he said.

    'There is some escalation (in prices) but my hope is that now that the new rabi (winter) crop coming into the market, prices that have caused a great degree of concern like those of wheat, sugar, oilseeds, pulses will see some moderation and that the economy has the capacity to absorb this hike in oil prices without setting in motion any inflationary spiral.'

    With all agricultural tax holidays, subsidies and so on, we only see more marginalisaion of farmers and farmer suicides !! Farm land is slowly vanishing and turning into industrial estates. Farmers' sons dont farm; they choose to work as cheap daily or contractual labour for the Hyundais, Nokias and the SaintGobains of the country !! We shamelessly import grains and sugar to feed our own Indian souls. So much for a country which claims to be 70-80% agricultural !!

    As the industrialist Mr.Narayanamoorthy the other day told NDTV , India shining will only be on that day, when every Indian has access to decent living , affordable food , education, medical facilities and jobs well his or her worth. Do we see this shining star in the near horizon?

    U know what? Toy Balloons will cost less this year !! Anybody for a joy ride with gas balloons ? ........?

    Do not miss this thrilling story to apply in life
    Dear Hariharan ,
    The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race starts this Saturday, March 6. Unlike
    any other event in the world, this race, which begins in Anchorage and
    ends in Nome, Alaska, covers over 1,150 miles of some of the most
    extreme terrain known to man. I’ve known about The Iditarod for years,
    but after reading Chris Fuller’s Iditarod Leadership,
    I now have much more of an appreciation for the competitors and the
    event which has been called “The Last Great Race on Earth.”

    In 2008, author Chris Fuller experienced his own Iditarod adventure
    by leading a team of dogs in Nome, Alaska, allowing him to learn,
    firsthand, the value of true leadership and its impact on the team.
    To illustrate these leadership concepts,
    Chris combined personal experiences with business fiction and has
    written   Iditarod Leadership: Unleashing the Power of the Team. If
    you’re ready to become a Master Leader, then let the adventure begin!
    To Your Success,
    Eric Harvey
    Eric Harvey

    Excerpted from Iditarod Leadership
    Prologue: A Race to Save Lives
    January 21, 1925—It had been a frigid winter and like most days the
    temperature never even reached zero—today, the high would be -5°F.
    The usual winter sicknesses made their rounds throughout the town,
    keeping the doctor busy. However, a new strain—something different—
    had been attacking their immune systems, and the young Inuits were
    particularly vulnerable. The process of diagnosing, treating, assessing
    and altering treatment had led to this point. Dr. Curtis Welch had
    come to the realization that what he was chasing
    was a deadly outbreak of Diphtheria.

    The villagers of this remote northern port located along the Bering
    Sea would not survive without the antitoxin. The search begins for
    the life saving serum, but as time wore on, the distance grew with
    every telegraph… Finally, the only serum in Alaska was found.
    Where? How many miles? His heart sank. A thousand miles away?
    A thousand miles of frozen, Alaskan wilderness away? The serum
    was in the care of Dr. J. B. Beeson at the Alaska Railroad Hospital in
    Anchorage. How fast can it be transported? The usual
    method for transportation during the summer months was
    steamship, but the sea had iced in the town since October, and it
    wouldn’t thaw until June.

    What about planes? Would someone be so daring as to fly during
    these conditions and attempt the landing? The only two available
    planes had been disassembled and neither had ever flown in winter.
    The call for help reached the Governor and the request for an
    alternate route was approved. The Alaskan Railroad ferried the
    medicine more than 250 miles north to Nenana. But from that point
    on, the traveling was treacherous.
    From there began what became known as “The Great Race 
    of Mercy.”

    Just before Midnight, January 27, with the clock ticking, the serum
    and the survival of the town was transferred into the hands of rugged
    men and their teams of sled dogs who would race across some of the
    most brutal terrain and the harshest conditions that
    Mother Nature has to offer.

    When the first musher left Nenana, the temperature reportedly
    hovered at -50°F. The volunteer mushers transferred this
    “Baton of Life” 18 times—until it reached the hands
    of Leonhard Seppala and his Lead dog, Togo, considered by many to
    be the true heroes of the run. Together they covered the most
    hazardous stretch of the route and carried the serum farther than
    any other team.
    The twentieth and final transfer was made and, according to legend,
    the serum wasnearly lost when a huge gust of wind toppled the sled
    of this final musher. The musher frantically dug the serum out of the
    snow with his bare hands, righted his sled and
    continued on. February 2 at 5:30 a.m., just five days and
    seven hours after leaving Nenana, the Norwegian, Gunnar Kaasen,
    and his Lead dog, Balto, arrived on Front Street in Nome.

    Salvation came through Courage, Skill, Teamwork, and
