'Saraswati' is the Goddess of learning, knowledge and wisdom according to Hindu mythology. She is always depicted in a white saree holding a veena that representing all forms of creative arts and sciences.
Uppalapu Srinivas introduced the mandolin to Indian music and created magic with it. He passed away in September 2014.
I'm sure the heavens cried too that day.
Here's Goddess Saraswati in black with a mandolin and tears in Her eyes - probably one of the few times it could have been a reality in mythology.
