ragas.karnatik.com, the composers page at composers.karnatik.com, and the

Comics and Cards
Did you see last month's karnATik kartoon? If not, it's time to revisit
it. It will split your sides (I hope). You can also send it as a greeting
card to someone and make them smile. There's a new one this month -
If you didn't feel like downloading each of the lesson audio files one by
one, I now have them available for download as one big zip file (Thanks
Venkat!). All you need is a Yahoo ID, then send your info as below:
If you're getting this, you have signed up for the new newsletter at
Topica. If someone you know isn't getting their issue anymore, please ask
them to sign up again (it means their old email address didn't receive my
update message) on the signup page. Also, the mailing list page lists
archives of karnATik in case you missed a previous issue. The most recent
issue will only be available to subscribers, however.
If you're having trouble with anything on the site, don't worry! You can
now get your questions answered on the new Frequently Asked Questions page
(FAQ). Check there first before you send out an email, and if you're still
struggling, never fear - I'm still here to help!
Soap opera story - Music is forever
I've started a new continuing fiction series - one long neverending story
in a soap opera style. You can check out the first installment this month!
Over the months I hope you'll be sad, happy, thrilled, angry, and amazed
as you follow the lives of these characters. Your feedback (and fan mail)
are appreciated. From time to time, a guest writer will be invited for the
stories as well. Happy Reading!
karnATik has a new message forum. The old one was working ok but didn't
give you as many options. The new one allows multiple different forums on
different topics, lets you see which was updated last, and looks a little
better. It takes no time to sign up and you can also make guest entries.
Post all the requests you want!
Music of Kerala, with message forums, lyrics to a few songs, reviews,
quiz, database of almost 900 film songs (by name or raga, tamil,
malayalam), and links to many other sites.
Carnatic Corner at Chembur.com
Many articles on carnatic music and composers, program schedules, and

If you missed the latest additions or last month's
issue, don't worry. All our new stuff is on the site.
