Music... the Elixir of Life!

    Carnatic Music (the classical music from South India) has been the mainstay of my life. Born and brought up in a "musical" environment, I learnt to play the violin... More of the dabbler than the seasoned veteran or professional, I enjoy listening to my collection of tapes and CDs whenever I get the chance.
