    Bideno ninnangri srinivasa is a very powerful song that reverberates in my heart even when when I wake up in the middle of night ! I knew it must have come from a powerful soul to have such a deep effect on me.I struggled hard to know who it was ,and here I realized it was Prasannavenkata dasaru.I live in USA and I listen to this song every day for the last 1m in morning while I drive to work. My interest in bhakti is all from being exposed to my Guru Kalavati Devi from Belgavi from my childhood.My mother tongue is Marathi but I have great interest in all the compositions of all Dasarus.I am from Dharwad. I know Kannada as good as marathi.We are really blessed to be exposed to such great compositions ! Its a wonderful experience cannot be explained in words.
