Cane today, gone tomorrow?

By S Sivaramakrishnan

The cane chairs of Sri Krishna Gana Sabha (KGS) must have witnessed several great and memorable Carnatic music concerts of Madras!

The sabha premises and auditorium are being renovated these days (in an enviably systematic manner), and I am afraid the cane chairs with their old world charm will soon make a historic exit.

But I just love the seats for their old-fashioned comfort, which modern furniture cannot provide (I am only 55)!

A recent photograph I took of the auditorium during a thinly attended event should give you an idea.
