What is the best tribute that a disciple can pay his Guru? Okay, next to what Ekalavya did? Well, we are not sure either, but here's one that ranks pretty high.
Nada Bharathi, on the occasion of its 7th Foundation Day, is organising a violin recital by R Dinakar, on 12th October at Kala Subbarao Kala Vedika, the mini-hall of Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha, Chikkadpally.
