Kerchief reservation. In auditoria.

Kerchief reservation.
You may have heard of it. Or been witness to it.
Of rasikas who 'reserve' a seat in the auditorium for a friend or a relative who will turn up after a concert has begun.

On Friday evening, as K. N. Ramaswamy, who heads the operations of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Chennai kendra in the city prepared to get the auditorium ready for the Bhavan's festival for the 'season', he could not but talk about one habit of rasikas that irritates him.

Kerchief reservation.

As he surveyed the main auditorium where the Akkarai Sisters were in concert for a fest that celebrated artiste O V Subramanian's centenary, he sighted a few seats with kerchiefs on them - reserved for friends for the next concert - of Abhishek Raguram.

"I just wish people came on time for a concert they want to be at," Ramaswamy said.
