Honestly, adiyen is neither qualified nor possess that much
knowledge/requisite material on this subject and hence it would be a great
injustice to dharma sAstrAs if adiyen give half-cooked information. Perhaps,
being in brahmacharyAshram adiyen did not bother too much to find out the
duration of Asaucham as brahmachAri & kanyA strI (*) are not affected by the
Asaucham. Learned members like Sri Sadagopan swamy & Sri Mani swamy could
enlighten us on that.

(*) except when he/she is the kartA for performing the funeral rites, and
that too is cleared after the bath.
