I request members to be very careful to transliterate
Sanskrit syllables properly. For example, a member

adiyen :   thanks for your kind  clarification . adiyen 
is  not even properly  acquinted  with Tamil . Sanskrit 
is  obviously  above  adiyen's  heads .  So ,  adiyen  can
know about  such  mistakes in transliteration  only if erudite
members  take  time  to  point  out  & clarify .  adiyen  will
anyway  make  best  efforts  to  transliterate  properly  in the future .

thanks .
