2nd edition of T.M. Krishna's book to be launched on March 26 in Bangalore
CHENNAI, March 9: The second edition of ``A Southern Music: The Karnatik Story'', a book authored by senior Carnatic vocalist T.M. Krishna, will be launched later this month.

It will be launched by Girish Karnad at Chowdiah Hall, Bangalore, on the evening of March 26, according to a note sent out by Mr. Krishna.

The first edition of the book was launched in December last during the music season in Chennai. It was launched by Noble Laureate and Bharat Ratna Professor Amartya Sen. "This is one the best books I have ever read on various subjects,’’ he had said while releasing the book at a function held at Kalakshetra.

Other than" educating me’’, the book "is illuminating at another level’’, he had said, pointing to some of the subjects such as religion, gender and caste dealt by the author Krishna in his book. ``Through the book, Krishna has made a complex subject very easy to read,'' Prof. Sen had said.

The book was published by Harper Collins.

The book-release function turned out be an emotional one for Mr. Krishna. ``It is (the release of his book) is an emotional moment for me, and a very special one at that,’’ he had said.
