Annals of Homeland Security

In the previous post with my listings for October, I had an item for a concert at Sri Ganesha Temple featuring a vocalist named Rekha Surya performing Hindustani light classical music. Turns out the concert was canceled. According to the email announcing the cancellation, Ms. Surya's accompanying musicians, Durjay Bhaumik (tabla) and Ratan Prasanna (guitar) were unable to get visas to enter the U.S. You would think this would be getting better by now, that Homeland Security would have figured out a way to differentiate Indian classical musicians from arms smugglers. Guess not.
