    The documentary that you have posted about “incredible Tamilnadu” revealed the originality of our state. I have the whole series DVD collection. It is a documentary which captured the incredible richness and diversity of India. Michael Wood did a good job of presenting it. Thanks for posting such videos.

    Here is a beautiful tribute to Bharathi, through singing (Carnatic), dancing (Bharatham) and translating his verses into English. Just not the popularized verses, but also some rare and precious ones. Do check the link and it is worth and pure joy for 90 minutes. I am sure you will love this video. Link is to the youtube video titled “Bond with the Bard” https://youtu.be/6PIM5ntgz-M
