Seeing is believing

The Dhananjayans: running a gurukula for music and dance All of you are aware of the Bhaaskara Art Integrated Education Centre coming up in sylvan northern Kerala. A year ago many may not have believed that the dream project will be a reality. Now you must come and see the place buzzing with life. Building activities are on full swing. Green saplings are coming up all around. Curious visitors enjoying their walk absorb the divine atmosphere of the hilly abode of Bhaaskara.

An intensive dance and training camp is on. June 2000 will see a few kids enjoying their school lessons in a casuarina grove, and doing their dance and music lessons under a Kerala-style roof.

To carry on this monumental work, we need immediate and abundant funding. We appeal to our friends and well-wishers to contribute generously and soon. Indian rupee cheques drawn in favour of Bhaaskara Art and Education Trust can be forwarded to No 22, Jeevaratnam Nagar, Adyar, Chennai 600020.

All donations are income tax exempted under Section 80(G). Foreign cheques may be marked "Towards Bhaaskara account" and mailed to: Swami Chidananda, Satchidananda Ashram, Yogaville, Buckingham, Virginia 23921, USA.

They will send you a tax exemption certificate.

Great venture

Congratulations. I found the review of Bhimsen Joshi's cassette excellent. Very few reviewers know how to write about music -- I mean how to deal with the objective as well as subjective response to it.

I am in Bangalore now and when I go back to Mysore I will keep in touch with your great venture -- I have bought a new computer and you have made it worthwhile for me.

Eager wait

I was wondering when you were scheduled to come up with the review for Kandukondain Kandukondain. I have been visiting your site multiple times a day to check if you have it up although I know you update it only once a couple of days!

Dr K Varadarangan: scholarly effort Systematic approach

I saw your article on my book in The New Indian Express. I was travelling to Bangalore from Ahmed Nagar and my colleague bought the paper in Guntakal and we found the article right on the second page.

It must thank you very much for giving such wonderful coverage. The article has come out very well, clearly highlighting what is new in the book. I liked your systematic approach.
