I had never listened to this piece earlier.I was awestruck by its beauty,when I listened to your uploads.Ramnad Krishnan's sahana alapana and the rendition of the kriti was simply outstanding.I had lost count as to how many times I had listened to it since then.Thank you Mr.Lokabhiramam for a wonderful job.Let your service to lovers of carnatic music continue.
