Planning some changes on the blog

It has been some years that we started the blog as a small outlet for our thoughts. We have come a long way since that. Most of the crew is busy with their work and life. The number of active posters has also reduced to 3-4. Anyways, this is a rant which has nothing to do with the motive of this post.

Recently I noticed that the shout-box had been completely useless and instead had become an ugly spot. I have removed the shout-box.

I have also changed the name of the blog from rvinst (it made no sense to someone who was not from RV) to "Uncontrolled Stability". Still doesn't make much sense but I feel it is better.

I am planning more changes on the blog template. Some which I feel very important and some which aren't. I would welcome all (10??) readers of this blog to comment and provide suggestions to make this blog look better.

Thanks in advance

Bhava - Door to union concert

Magic. Sheer magic is how I can describe Ustad Zakir Hussain.
I had never imagined that a simple looking tabla would be able to produce a sound like a conch-shell. More over the laya and shabda knowledge of zakir was amazing to listen.

The kathak performance by his wife Antonia was no less either. All in all, it was an awesome performance.

Thanks to Surabhi Clemson for a wonderful concert.
