Namaskarams to every one.  I am a new member and my name is Ram Sriram.
Recently, I was having a small discussion with a frined, Rangarajan
Iyengar about vaishnavite culture and he suggested that I subscribe to
this devoted group.  Rangarajan also was kind enough to send me a few of
the items from the archives he had preserved.  As a vidhyarthi interested
in learning about the vaishnavite culture, I was very impressed with the
contents and immediately subscribed to the list.

I am a professor at Georgia State University, Atlanta.  Rama,my wife and I
are actively involved in the Sri Venkateswara temple, Atlanta and do
volunteer work at the temple once a week.  We both are also ardent lovers
of carnatic music and particularly Thiagaraja's compositions because he
propounds music as a way to engage in bhakti and surrender to Lord Rama. 

I am interested in learning from each one of you.  Adiyen.  Sriram
