Dear Vijay,
This sounds like a sound and practical project. It is
very interesting. Please let me know if there is any
way adiyen can help. I can contribute my little bit to
funding if you like. But more importantly, I
wholeheartedly offer to lend a hand at faithfully
translating the "upanyAsam-s" (which I am sure will be
of excellent standards) into easy and readable English
prose to go down well with lay and young readers. I am
willing to undertake this in a spirit of 'kainkaryam'
if your project leaders feel I am deserving enough to
be entrusted with the task.

If you can send me copies of the 20-25 tapes that are
already out as you say, I can start work immediately.
(I will bear costs of tapes etc.)
