Been doing some work....

I conducted my first two "celebrity" interviews....first, Lillette Dubey and then, yesterday evening, Girish Karnad .

Both of them are very articulate people, and having organized my questions well, I got quite a lot of info about them, for two articles....one, I thought would be a kind of "reminder" post for Metblogs, as I had put in an announcement of Karnad's new play, "The Wedding Album" (ha, that's not on the Net yet; when I googled the words, this is all I got!), which is being staged in Bangalore today and tomorrow.

But then, I decided that the article merited an appearance in a more "serious" forum, and today, Citizen Matters is running it as a curtain raiser, and I have provided a link to it on Metblogs,


here

It contains the link to the Citizen Matters article, too...only, for some reason, CM has used the word "screening" and not "staging" for a play!

I'll be going to see the play tomorrow....and I think I am going to enjoy it!


A more broad-based (don't ask, "which broad?") article, dealing with their thoughts on Bangalore and theatre in Bangalore, is in the process of being written...and will appear in Citizen Matters, too.

Birthday wishes

Abbah, I finally remembered in time to post...

Happy birthday to amoghavarsha. May he have Purity in his life always...and happiness and good health and prosperity and.....!



When I say "Amoghavarsha",there is this one , this one , this one , and Amoghavarsha IV (AD 968 - 972)!

I mean Amoghavarsha V , ruling from 1983 - present date...happy quarter century.

And "amogha varsha" also means "excellent rains", so here's a photo of raindrops for the photographer...
