3 UVCE Alumni Friends at Mt. Madonna

When you meet friends from college days or from years past, the dimensions in which you can converse increase substantially. In the video shown here, which was taken when three of us — M. S. Chandrasekhar, K. Ramesh Babu & K. H. Sathyanarayana Rao, all UVCE graduates in Electronics & Communications Engineering (1971) — visited Mt. Madonna near San Jose, CA, you get a glimpse of that variety.

A R Rahman in Jai Ho Concert at the Oracle Arena

After nearly 75 days of waiting, we finally got to take in the A R Rahman Jai Ho concert at the Oracle Arena in Oakland yesterday. The original date of the concert was June 26, and an accident in an earlier concert forced the rescheduling of the Oakland event. You can see a video of the introduction here.

The concert was an audio-visual treat that I had not experienced in recent years. (Disclosure: I am not much of a concert-goer). Specifically, the thin translucent screen was used to great visual effect, particularly when a Lata Mangeshkar number was presented on the screen along with A R Rahman's live singing.
