This is interesting.  Have any of the group members recorded (or inherited
recordings) of the programs which featured G as the presenter?

I was under the impression that 'Malliyalaara maalikalaara ... maunamugaa
unnaaraa' was G's favorite.  In fact, CinaarE, the author mentioned this
in an article.  Apparently, G very closely followed the scripting of the
song, and in fact gave suggestions to the author.

Sudhakar. 

P.S.  It is not my intention to detract from the beauty of 'Manasuna
manasai', which incidentally, is one of my favorite songs.
