Dear Visitor/Fan/Music-Lover,

Thank you for stopping by this website. The fact that you are here reveals that perhaps, Indian Classical Music, Veena, and Chitti Babu mean something to you. We appreciate your interest to know more, and hope you find browsing around this site an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Currently, this website serves two primary objectives:

  • To perpetuate the memory of Late "Veena" Maestro Dr. Chitti Babu - arguably one of the greatest-ever Indian Classical (Carnatic) musicians
  • To serve as an authentic source of information on the Web about Dr. Chitti Babu - his music, his contribution and achievements, his persona and his legacy

More than being just a source of information, the idea is also to give you a glimpse into the mind of the genius and the man who spread so much love and happiness to all the people he came in touch with in his eventful life, through his divine music and genuine warmth.

Warm regards,

Sayee Challapally

Eldest son of Late "Veena" Maestro Chitti Babu - on behalf of the family
