What else I enjoy


Other than research I am interested in various other things like singing, playing/analyzing chess, blogging, browsing and reading.

I am an ardent lover of carnatic classical music and a singer too. Here is my YouTube channel. I learnt music under the tutelage of Padmashri Palghat Sri. K.V.Narayanaswamy, (picture) who's one of my all time favourite singers. I was very fortunate to have him as my Guru, for he is so versatile not only in singing but also in teaching.

I started my basic music lessons from Mrs. Visalakshi and continued it under Sri. T.K.Subramaniam in Tirunelveli (south India) until I came over to Madras for joining masters in IIT. I have 15+ years of music training.

My favourite classical singers include M.D.Ramanathan, Madurai Sri. Mani Iyer, Madurai Sri. T.N.Seshagopalan. If I have to mention the favourite of mine it is MDR and next comes KVN

Here is my Guru's homepage which has some old evergreen concerts.

Here is a sample of my voice. It is a wounderful piece - Ennamum orutharam in the raga Yadukula Kambhoji in adi tata composed by Gopalakrishna Bharathi

Here are some sample of my voice:
