I do agree by What Sri Mani has expressed. His quoting is so fitting and
need no further explanation. In the same context I am interested in knowing
few more reasons,  in normal Sevakalam Ghosti why "the so called non
Brahmins" have not been included . I do agree that this is Ok for those who
have not had Samashrayanam. But for Srivaishnavas after having the
Samashrayanam they should have every right to join the Prabhanda Ghosti if
not Veda Ghosti(Which may have lot of other restrictions).
This is applicable for both Kalais. Adiyen would request the Sri Vaishnavas
to correct me if I am wrong.
