Dear Sri Subramanian :

Outstanding and pioneering work is done
at the sansrit Academy of Melkote under 
the leadership of Sri Lakshmi Tatachar .
Professor Alwar is the son of this illustrious
scholar and I have copied him on this note 
for additional information on the programs
that you referred to . Some of the members of
this group , who have visited this pioneering
center can add more information .
