Visitors' Comments

Since karnATik has been up and even before it got its name and started as lyrics to a handful of songs, it has been driven by the enthusiasm and confidence and interest of visitors to the site. They have made it really worthwhile for me to continue (with MUCH help, please see my shout outs) adding lyrics and every bit of information I find. It's been fascinating and fun and a lot of hard work. But the satisfaction I see in these people's words makes it more than worth any amount of toil involved. All this appreciation should go mainly to Mr.Lakshman Ragde, who has done the brunt of the work, and to the composers and musicians who made the music.
