om namo narayana

Respected srivaishnavas,
                         My name is Madhusudhan Srikkanth and I am 
doing my 
B.E degree in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.This is 
my first 
mail to this group after my introduction.I came to know about this 
from my uncle Sri.Madhavakannan and I am very grateful to him for 
this.I had 
the bhagyam of undergoing panchasamskaram under the guidance of His 
Sri.Sriranga Srimad Andavan during my first semester holidays.
                         I have a doubt regarding parishEshanam.Is 
parishEshanam offering of food to the lord residing within us
before eating it?If it is so why is it that we do parishEshanam only 
when we 
are eating rice and not when we are eating other kinds of food like 
chappatis and dosas.Please forgive adiyEn for asking silly doubts.I 
had this 
doubt for a long time but had the courage to ask it only today as I 
that this question is not fit to be asked to stalwarts in this 
again requests all of you to forgive me for asking questions like 
would be grateful to anyone who could kindly clarify my
