Dear Sri Sundararajan Svamin,

I share the outrage expressed by you regarding this issue and hope that
the authorities will see reason and correct their ways.A similar
situation occured in srivilliputtur some years back and the authorities
wanted to change 'srivilliputtur' to 'thiruvilliputtur'.The pundits
and vidwans of srivilliputtur opposed this and cited various reasons
why only the word 'Sri' can be prefixed to villiputtur and how it not just
a question of adding thiru before a name.

	It is also very disturbing to see that sri is removed from the
name srinivasan etc.somewhat related to this i have heard from my friend
that in tamil nadu one is not allowed to use his/her surname.ie
during school admission if the name contains the surname also then the
auhorities ask the parents to remove the surname before admitting the
student.Is this true because i did not know of anything like this during
my stay in tamil nadu

thanks

adiyen Ramanuja dasan
venkat s iyengar
