previous entry), not only am I in the local newspaper, I was also featured on the news on local TV!!!!
Below is the video of the television which I made with my camera! The quality is terrible, however it only adds to the "Indian-style" feel of it, huhu... The news reporter did give me a CD of the news report; however I would have to edit it to cut out only my part, and I can't figure out how to use my video-editor... Maybe one day!
What the reporter says is that I have been living in India for 6 years, that I am learning Indian violin with Pt. Sukhdev Mishra in Varanasi, and that I was giving a concert for the Blue Bank association with my students. During my interview (in Hindi) I repeat the name of my guru, and I say that today is a special day because it's the first time I play with my own students. I also say that Akhilesh has been playing violin for 2 years and Arjun for about 6 months.
A note on my three blogs
A note on my blogs
(1) vio; in love with india - this one is the main blog about my Indian adventures, which started in 2005. I don't write much on this blog these days because I prefer to write privately in the confidential blog. But check out the categories and the index to figure out your way. I have kept some older posts not about India but which I still find interesting or relevant in Old words. Also check out my new, fun category Only in India in which I post photos of funny, unique, Indian situations...
(2) vio; sounds of india - this is my blog of sounds, because India wouldn't be as incredible if it was not so vibrant and just so full of incredible sounds!
(3) vio; confidential - this an extension of my main blog in which I post entries I do not want to reveal to the entire webspace for privacy or sensitivity reasons. You must receive an invitation from me and then accept the invitation to be able to read it. You may email me if you are interested in receiving an invitation.
