Giriraja Suta not Sudha

Returning back to blogging after a 13 month hiatus. First, errata.

I noticed that quite a few folks were deceived by the cover of the Remember Shakti album, 'Saturday Night in Bombay'.

It is Giriraja Suta Tanaya Sadaya, which means, son of the daughter of the mountains. In other words, Thyagaraja has composed a song on Ganesha, son of Parvati -the daughter of Himavan.

The chap who wrote the album cover of "Saturday Night in Bombay" probably got his info from the atrocious pronunciation of Shankar Mahadevan.
