Thanksgiving to Illayaraja: The guy

Thanksgiving to Illayaraja:

The guy who rocked last week with his comments on the Bala issue, strikes back again. This time in his email to me he had an humble request . The request is about publishing the small note on Thanks Giving TO Raja Day.

A couple of months back when I first read about Illayaraja’s project of Thiruvasakam in Symphony, I was very impressed and was expecting it to be on the racks very soon. Here was my small blogpost on it.

But it looks like the project is getting delayed a bit due to various issues and Illayaraja’s fans are pumping in the money needed to complete this noble venture. More on this is in the note thats being published all over on the drive to collect money which will be donated to this project.

I would appreciate if some co-bloggers can also publish the note below if they feel this to be a fair drive towards making a great dream come true.

Thanks Senty. Here’s the note :
