Dear Sri Sampathkumar,

Sri Anbil Ramaswamy and Sri Anand (of Singapore) also sent me a reply on the 
same. Thanks for your lateral thinking on the subject..

What Sri Anand and Sri Anbil mama wrote (in my words):
One does abivaadhanam (not only as an introduction) also to remind ourselves 
of our lineage (the glorious) and to feel proud of the same, in addition to 
feel committed to maintain (attempting to maintain) the lineage's graetness, 
by adhering to saasthras and carryout anushatanams like sandhyavandhanam.

That was good one to keep my son happy.
