If on your first night in Chennai which concert would you go to? U Shrinivas, N Ramani or Nirmala Rajashekar?
On the second night would you opt for Balamuralikrishna, O S Thyagarajan, Bombay Jayashri, Priya sisters or Hyderabad brothers?

Tough decisions every night....

It's hard to be delicate about this, but since even legends do not live forever, I would opt for N. Ramani and Balamuralikrishna, as you may not have another opportunity to see them again, while you will likely have other opportunities to see the others.

Pascal, I hadn't intended the post to be taken too seriously, it's just that returning to Chennai after a number of years absence I am once again astounded at the wealth of the December Season.
But you certainly have a point. I still kick myself for missing my last opportunity to see Ustad Vilayat Khan when I heard late in the day he was performing in Kolkata.
I am not sure if N Ramani is performing more than once this year (he is opening the Music Academy season), But fortunately M Balamuralikrishna is performing 5 times that I can find during my stay, so I'd certainly hope to see him more than once, his concert was the outstanding highlight of one of my previous visits.
