No place for nagaswaram . . .

The issue has been debated umpteen times. What is the space that we give to nagaswaram-tavil artistes at the December Season?
Everybody knows that these artistes are assigned to provide the mangala isai before the formal launch of a music  or dance festival at all our sabhas. Only Sri Krishna Gana Sabha pursues an idea its late secretary Yegnaraman floated - to have an exclusive nadaswaram music fest at Pongal festival-time.
Today, th├Ęse artistes and scholars who have studied the music are saying it openly on platforms that it is time sabhas had a few nagaswaram concerts too.

Even the 9 a.m. concert slots would make for a start.
