      In his query dated July 17th, Sri Mani Varadarajan
 asked whether there were any Tamil people who did not
call their father appa.This is very interesting.My
reply does not give any direct answer but says that
Tamil Vaishnavas like me whose ancestors settled in
Andhra(not in places like Tirupathi full of Tamil
culture) call their father ayya.Interestingly,
all Andhrites other than Tamil Vaishnavas call
their father naanna.
