A Balamurali Krishna Concert

Yesterday was the much awaited kacheri by Dr.Balamurali Krishna. The scene outside the concert hall was enjoyably chaotic. Young ladies decked out in colorful costumes with sparkly jewelry to match. Even the pleasantly chubby, traditionally build, older women were seen replete with stunning silk saris. The scene was completely captivating to any testosterone overdosed, over-adrenalized male animal. There was a lady, in her mid 30s bathed in flowing silk and glittering gold that made me wonder if she was a maharani or at least a princess from India who just came straight from the SFO airport. For a few precious moments I conveniently pretended to be the old man Salim Ali.
Kacheri began an hour late. Dr.Balamurali Krishna entered the stage dressed like a King! (See the lousy picture I managed to take). He started with a keerthanam in Hamsadhwani. I felt blessed listening to his hauntingly beautiful renditions and his mellifluous voice that serenaded millions of music lovers around the world. The songs were genius and the music was happy and uplifting. I only wish he had sung more Thyagaraja, Deekhithar or Swathithurnal krithis than his own compositions.

On a scale of one to ten I would give him an eleven.

There is some thing about our flag. When an organizer unfurled the Indian tricolor and posted a banner adorned with “Vande Mataram", it gave me instant goose bumps.

You first need to select the positions on your North Face Jackets leather jackets to place patches. You can select locations such as the back of your jackets. Arms are also a very good place to position your patches. Belstaff Bags You can position your patches that you think it will look its best. Just don't place them over seems and pockets. You can use measuring tape to align your patch straight if you want. Otherwise randomly placed patches also give a good look. You can just add patches and leave the rest of your leather in the same way if you want. Cheap Ugg Boots But there are tons of other ideas too to make custom leather jackets.
