And Then, He Sang For Me!


With the distance to Mahimalai reducing, I think I could hear Dinan break into a composition at the temple. The Neelambari raga; no, it is the Amritavarshini raga; his favorite. Amritavarshini; the pentatonic scale of Carnatic music is believed to have the ability to produce rain. His voice indeed had the power to please Lord Indra, the God of rains. The Neelambari was my favorite. Even then, I’d love to hear him sing his rendition of the Amritavarshini this morning.
