Chennai sangamamA year has gone and another Chennai Sangamam.
I really enjoy this, since I am from Thanjavur, a place where arts were born and flourished. I went to Nageswara Rao Park,Mylapore. The Koothu, after more than a decade, I watched with full enthusiasm. The satire by kattyangaran is just too good -- no unwanted double meaning jokes or irritating people by their mannerisms. The theme is Sathyavan - Savithri. But sadly they have to finish it off because of lack of time.
Then came the karakattam and nayyandi melam.
Nithyasri's magical voice as usual tied the people around.
I have to mention about the food served there. Bombay Ice cream and chats, thengai sadam and gulab jamoon, all chetti nadu delicacies, savorite's upma, payasam and cutlet.
we relished the programmes as well as the food. Most of the people were picnicking there, sitting on the grass, eating and chatting.
