Hey, has anyone ever been to Om Parvat? Is it real, or just a fiction to attract tourists?

It's supposed to be a unique feature on the Kailash Manosovar route.

Sorry for the digression. Maestro Ilaiyaraja's Thiruvasagam in Symphony has been released. Thiruvasagam is a 9th century Tamil literature on Lord Siva written by Maanickavasagar. If you are into classical (western/Indian) or love old Tamil literature or love Ilaiyaraja's music or want to hear
something you have never heard
this is for you.

Hear the samples and decide for yourself:

In the US you can order the CD from

In India you can order the CD online from

or from any of the major audio outlets in Chennai, Bangalore, etc.

I have been closely following this effort for the past two years. It has been brought out after lot of difficulties. The producers have incurred huge loans. If you are interested in it, please buy original CDs or cassettes (even if you download from somewhere).
