Dear Mukundan:

Thank you very much for a wonderful response.  I would
like to know more about periyavas answers and some
more of your thoughts.  

Karma theory make sense and certianly atleast helps
explain action-reaction concepts that can be explained
even to a child.  

You have also highlighted a very interesting fact -
that sampradayam and loukikam seem to have taken
precedence over basic human values.  I truly beleive
that ONLY true human values have stood the test of
time and if infact there are Sri Vaishnavas still
around, they have been able to practice fundamental
values and not just lead a life defined by "rules".

Thank you very much again.

Rajesh Elayavalli
