well, pat on our backs... we did manage to. the adi maavu dosai,14-idly basundhi, n coffee... (yeah we realised it was a bad combi of assorted dishes -- but who cares - it was good food after an incredibly long wait)
Mr.sundaram and Mr.vijaykumar -- 2 ppl whom i know very well now, managers/supervisors at saravana bhavan - really helpful ppl who resembled visu and my dad respectively. made us feel comfortable, wanted and cared for. helped us out in enquirin abt hotels where we could stay for the night... and well helped us thru the queue for lunch the next afternoon. yup fixed thaali - it was. i still feel full jus thinking abt it. the place and the food -- ROCK!
that apart - the auto hunt n money constraint n the "no credit" card at coffee day will forever be in our memories i guess. for once i had to accept my dad was right abt me and my money managing capabilities! :(( that explains the Rs. - 34/- on my hutch pre-paid. wonder how roaming could possibly be so expensive. freaking 10 bucks for a minute of incoming or what?
anyways, the money saving plans were more to get tickets at PVR for the ONE n only RANG DE BASANTHI/./. sadly --- we were there on a weekend n they were sold out. pretty much expected.. so the cribbin part there after got gusd!
dakshina dakshina dakshina :P (kari - yb's pisd with you)

Well, as most of us know.. TAP for the first time was extended into a 3 day fest. The first 2 days had individual concerts by the present third yearites -- they were under the banner SAMARPANAM. Frankly speaking i did notice that the ind of response that raag recieved this semester for concerts such as SAMARPANAM and RANJINI have been great. These 3 years i ve never seen 2219 this full. Most of u might remember how it was when we came up with KALADHARA. The crowd was that good. :)
Coming to the songs, on the first day we had Archna Ramana (ninne bajana and nadha thanumanisham) , Shankar (gaanamoorthe, padhavini, anuragamule,sarsa saama dhaana) and subha (o ranga sai and nannu kana thalli). The concert lasted for a lil more than an hour and we had a couple of profs making special mentions about how wonderful the concert was.

with one entire round of the usual - sight adipome dhum adipom - nokia - remo - uppu karuvaadu - um bak um bak - straw berry kannae -- etc etc.. and debut dances by sara n co -- it was super cool bus ride.
we planned to start at 9.30 -- some how the usual delay happened and we finally managed t cross the bits gate at 11 with a couple of lies to compensate for the doubts that excited the bits chowki , we boarded bus close to 11 n reached midways at arnd 12.15
we had decided a NO-NO for the pool already. s0 well after having set up the laptop and the woofers to play some "fun" music... that happened after a mini accident when manojh and me tried to shift a table .. and ended up removing the granite table top alone .. which kinda peeled off some skin from manojh's right hand
but that got better.. and then we had a game of co-co - and more dancing -- some dw training - some fash p by yb thadhar n sriram -- loads of video -- lots of laughs and bad food and oorga saadham!
its 8.32 a.m now.. and i got nalog lab in like 30 minutes. so i shall rush now... more on tap .. coming real soon!
