Applause in the driveway!

Walking around Mylapore's mada veedhis on Sunday evening, we came across a big crowd in the driveway of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan. It was 6.10 p.m. and all these people were waiting to go inside the auditorium to get a seat for a musical discourse by Vishaka Hari.

Not many got in because the many more who were seated inside, stuck on! Vishaka arrived just on time, and got a warm ovation from the standees - rarely seem in sabha campuses. Yes, she does command a big audience and the evening at Bhavans was evidence of it.

"We must learn Sanskrit." she diverged at the top of her discourse. " It must not be seen just as a mere language. It is language, science, math, culture and more!".
