Hello Everyone,
  I haven't had a chance to log in and check on the group's progress in 
almost a week, so  I apologize.  I was a little dissapointed to see the 
very slow traffic on the group in the past few days, but maybe I can 
attribute it to the start of the new school year, for those of us in 
college and graduate programs.  Why don't  we start with a topic that I 
suggested some time ago, but did not receive any type of response too, 
such as Ghantasala's songs with P. Leela.  If I am correct, Leela was G's 
favorite female singer and also the voice onseveral famous hits such as 
Lahiri Lahiri Lahiri Lo and neevE nA nanu thalachinadhE from Maya  
Bazaar.  I am hoping for some discussion on this topic,maybe to include 
some history ofLeela and her advent into the playbackbusiness as  well as 
her connection to Ghantasala as well as a discussion of their various 
songs.  Please, let us get started!!!
