Dear Sri.Bharath,
Thanks for the piece of research! I guess
Sri.Alkondavalli and adiyen form a minority of two!
Adiyen is nevertheles in good company!

Anyway as I said in my post before, both for me and my
two children, it is of no central concern if Kuresan
was younger or older than Udaiyavar by a few odd
years! As a casual student of history I can tell you
there is still a controversy over whether Cleopatra
was older than Julius Ceasar or not! 

Footnotes do not change history. Kuresan life's a real
inspiration for me and my family, either way!

dAsan,
Sampathkumaran
