One more month!

This shot was taken right before my rangapravesham in the summer of 2009. It was a grueling summer of long, hard, practices, sore muscles, and aching feet. But the joy of hearing the first notes of the flute, the steady beats of the mridangam, and the soft klinks of the nattuvangam made up for all of it. If I could, I would do it again in a heartbeat!
