Dear members of the Prapatthi group,

I would like to share with you an article written by my father's uncle,
Sri D. Ramaswamy Iyengar. He has formed a stanza by taking the first 
word of each of the verses of TiruppAvai and has given an interpretation
to it. I wanted to send this during the month of Margazhi itself, but I 
could do so only now. I had been home this weekend and I had the good fortune 
of bringing it with me this time. I have tried my best at transliteration, but 
I may have made some mistakes. Let me hasten to add that all mistakes
in the trasliteration etc, are entirely due to my ignorance.
