|S.V.Satheesh with his dear harmonium during a programme in Brindavan,|
In the summer of 2002, S.V.Satheesh sat in the tiny room with extreme exhaustion. It was nearly 3 am and the whole night had been one of great effort for him. For almost a week now, he had been recording what could possibly become his first ever musical album. And today, he had just completed recording the last piece. Though he was feeling fatigued, he was also feeling fulfilled! This was a long-cherished dream come true - a dream that had formed in his student days at the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Learning.

Anil Kumar Kamaraju.
|Satheesh did not want his presence on the divine stage to ever end. He physically wanted to be with his Swami forever.|
