Dr. Sadagopan's Postings

On behalf of my mother and myself, I request Sri. Sadagopan to 
continue with his excellent postings on diversified subjects.  His 
postings on various subjects (Sri Vaishnava Philosophy to Music 
Composers) are informative and appealing.   I apologize for being 
remiss in acknowledging the value of the postings.  One of the human 
weakness is taking things for granted.  In this case, assuming that 
Silence is conveying appreciation.  I have always wondered how he 
finds the time to address in detail the various postings.  Sometimes I 
am complaining at home that I do not find time even to read the 
postings as much as I would like to do!  And It is amazing that he 
spends his time to research and translate for the benefit of fellow 
Sri Vaishnavas.  

I am particularly enjoying the series on Dhanur Maasam for a few 
logical personal reasons!  In the joint family home I grew up in 
Bangalore, during Dhanur Maasam we used to have our family vaadiyar 
come every day early morning and perform pooja and recite Thiruppaavai.
  VeNNpongal and sakkarai pongal were eaten in galore!  Secondly, my 
husband's parents were following the same tradition.  In fact my 
father-in-law's name is Sri Garudachar (Sri Vishnuchittar's amsam), 
quite common in Karnataka Sri Vaishnava Iyengar families.  My 
husband's name is Rangamannar being born in ThiruVaadi Pooram!  My 
parents named me Choodi kOdutttha Naacheeyaar since I was born in 
Maargazhi maasam.   

May I use this opportunity to convey my thanks to the other 
contributors such as Sri Sampath Rangarajan, Sri Sudharshan, Sri 
Krishna Kalale, Sri Mani Varadarajan, Sri Dileepan, Sri Anbil 
Ramaswamy, Sri Muralidharan Rangaswamy, Sri Jaganath Bharadwaj,  Sri V.
 Sundar et al for the various postings over the year!  I am sure I 
left out other names due to short memory!.  My sincere apologizes.  

Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!  I will miss the postings during 
Office planned shutdown from 12/24 thru 1/2/97.  I wish the organizers 
of the Buffalo Satsang all the best.
