Srimathe Gopaladesika Mahadesikaya Namah:
Dear Sri Samapthkumaran,

While I agree with you and Sri Krishna, on the pitiable soory state of 
affairs presently prevailing, it is not as black as it is painted. There are 
lots of awareness NOW, especially due to graet bhakti posts (especially from 
Bhagawathas like yourself.. in such inimitable style like that of Sri 
Kuresar's ), there is sure lots of awareness. I know one young lad, (of 25) 
talking to his father and asking him to carry out Samasrayanam after reading 
these posts.. (He had already undergone last year)..

You should see also the NAMA events happening, young children partcipating 
with such enthu, reading the stories of AzhwArs and AchAryAs. The manner in 
which Srivaishnavas in their 20's and 30's wearing pancha kaccham and 
madisaars and not just that. Talking about deep vishayams effioortlessly. 
(after performing bharanYasam, and also avoiding all paraannam..including 
eating in adiyEn's home). Today we try to (at least pretend) do because we 
saw our parents doing and followsing these anushtanams. How do we pass on 
them.. Just simply do it..

And after all.. is it not His leelA, samapth..? and if at all, some such 
stray thought comes to our mind, relating to Emperumaan, adhuvum avandhu
