The revelation of a musical mystery!

Raj at Plus Ultra clears a mystery or two:

R.K.Narayan, in one of his short-essays, described the agony of a musically-challenged man, forced to attend a Sunday evening concert of Carnatic music.

40 years after RKN wrote this piece, the truth can now be told. The anonymous friend in the article is actually me.

The passages I have ellipsis-ed out are the ones where Raj quotes RKN, and needless to say, you should read them; go, take a look!
