     Ha! Ha!, Now I am in a real fixing situation. All along I had been
     arguing as to which is the best Divya DEsam between Thiruvarangam and
     Thirumalai. Now, the argument has branched to ThiruvallikkENi where I
     am living since my birth. Of course, without my Parthassaraty and
     Azhagiya Singan I would have been a big zero in both the Vaidheekam
     and Lowkeekam life.

     When two people vote for my PerumAL as the best, I wouldn't dare to
     argue further, particularly when Sri Anbil swamy brings out the
     beautiful reason for his vote.

     However, since I was arguing with respect to Thirumalai, I would still
     continue to argue for Thiruvarangam as the best Divya DEsam.

     I fall at the feet of my beloved PerumALs at ThiruvallikkENi and pray
     to Them to excuse me and allow me to argue in favour of Ranganathan. I
     believe my Ranganathan and VEdavalli in ThiruvallikkENi will allow me
     to do this.

     I also pray to the PerumALs of Thirumalai and other Divya DEsams to
     take our discussion in a lighter vein.!!
