Packed TMK concert. And only sapad, no coffee after it.

The autos and the taxies honked their way out. Hawkers screamed. And the concert carried on the way ti should.
This morning's concert of T M Krishna for Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha at a wedding hall off Jammi Buildings junction was packed and overflowing; every seat occupied, the outer space full and a screen beaming the images via CCTV.

Even curious women who attend meetings and work at the Working Women's Forum which functions on this campus peeped in to find out what the cause of the rush was.

Krishna, midway told his audience that this was not the concert in the form it is today and that it would be good for us all if we too didn't have such expectations in mind.

Not many seemed to mind tis morning. They had their fill and the diehard fans picked up a copu of Krishna's recently released nook ' A Karnatik Music' and rushed back to the lobby to get it autographed.

It was a shade after 12noon when the eoncert got over and in minutes the Mountbatten-managed canteen was full for sapad. Coffee? Sorry, closed for lunch time, the steward said.

Wouldn't rasikas have a hot cuppa after a Mountbatten meal?
