A beautiful Autumn evening drenched in yellow golden sunshine, yellow green leaves of the trees look gorgeous. Poochi Iyengar’s lilting Kaanada Thillana (sung so evocatively by KVN) replays again and again in my head, the gentle beauty of the raagam accentuating nature’s beauty thereby bringing tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. Little kids are playing soccer and the joy on their faces is palpable. Will the calm beauty of life ever satiate the burning yearning inside?
