SrimatE Gopaladesika MahadesikAya Namaha,

Adiyen is pained to note that Smt. Shuba was subjected to a barrage 
of flames from an anonymous source. Smt. Shuba merely posed a few 
questions and the proper way to answer them is a point-by-point 
response on the net. Adiyen too hastily and unfairly accused her of 
launching a tirade against respected members of this list. Now that 
the background of her questions have become clear, adiyen wishes 
to apologize to her for the hasty remarks. 

However, flames from the anonymous source are most deplorable. It is 
adiyen's request that Smt. Shuba not leave the group.

Namo Narayana,

SriMuralidhara Dasan
