In response to recent posting by Mr. Parthasarathy
Dileepan calling for discussions on the Sri Vaishnava
Thondar Kuzhaam name, I would like to make the following comments:

Sri Vaishnava Thondar Kuzhaam (SVTK) has four words, two each of Sanskrit and
Tamil origin. This is a perfect reflection of our origins. 

However, in the light of the recent discussions  on Aacharams, it may define
our group better if we introduce,  a word such as : Progressive, dynamic,
vibrant, versatile, resilient,  reformed, munetra, Web-crawling,  Webvedanta,
 pragmatic , global, pro-active, Etc.  Actually, it may be better to have an
English word.  I am sure with th ehelp of so many illustrious members of the
net work, we may be able t come up with a better word 
as a prefix to Sri Vaishnava Thondar Kuzhaam.
