The Shankar Mahadevan Concert

After a long time, I went to attend a concert in the centre of town. Shankar Mahadevan, Sivamani, Zakir Hussain, and Selvaganesh were playing/singing, and it would be interesting, I thought. I did, also get some nice images...

And on the way back, we saw this deity being taken in procession:

The concert ended, I thought, far too soon...the whole crush of people streamed out again, causing blocks in the traffic once again....

A lot more thought should go into the selection of a venue for such events, and access and exit routes, as well as security issues, should be addressed much better than it was today.
