Dear Bakthi Group members, Namaskaram ! Being a new member to this group, let me introduce myself,briefly. I am coming from a orthodox Vaishnava family which follows vadakalai sampradaya. My native place is a hamlet near Pattukkottai in Thanjavour district . My maternal grand father was a great scholar in sanskrit and he lived in Thiruvehendrapuram, a Divya Desam near Cuddalore. I was born there, and had schooling here for one year at the age of ten. My close association with my grand father has created lot of interest in Vaishnavam and today whatever little I know is due to him only. I enjoyed most of the Utsavams of Sri Devanatha Perumal and Swami Desikan (of Thiruvehendrapuram) during my young days. I am a Mechanical engineer by profession, living in gulf since 1992. Currently employed in Bahrain, a gulf country where there a lot of satsangh activities. We participate in Divya Prabandam and Baghavath Geetha classes weekly, and on every Sravanam , we recite Swami Desikan's slokams, a kaimkaryam started by Mr. Sudershan while he was in Bahrain. My access to the internet is very recent,and I found the daily disscussions are very interesting and informative. I would like to thank Mr Mani for providing this excellent opportunity.
