My pranams to all,
Let me introduce myself,I hail fro a small village near Thirunelvelli
called Anantakrishnapuram.My parents and I have been living in Madras
for the past 2 generations(i.e.,  since my grandfather)I am currently
studying a Masters in Industrial Relations program at the London School
of Economics,London and thus seem to be the youngest(aged 22yrs)
amongst those in the 'living room of sorts' so my purpose would be to
learn more about our sampradaya than perhaps contribute to the
discussions per se.
I have for the past few years been intensely drawn towards The
Shri.Kumudhavalli Thayar samedha, Shri Vaithamanidhi Perumal
Koil,Thirukolur.(One of the Navathirupathis).The village is also the
avathara sthalam of Shri.Madhurakavi Azhvar.I would appreciate any
information on the shrine as to date I have only the relevant pasurams
sung on the Lord in the DivyaPrabhandham.

Yours Respectfully
Pradeep Chakravarthy
