Consciousness in the state of moksha

Dear Sriman Mani,

Thanks for asking this question- the same thing has been in mind for
a few years now and specially so since about 1.5 years now. I somehow
could not muster enough courage to ask such a question in an open
forum till now. While I wait eagerly to the postings of learned
people in response to this question, I would just like to bring out
some thoughts I have had on this.... 

Although there is no proof etc one can not help thinking that the
Jivan may have knowledge about atleast the last birth in which, due
to its association with a SadAchArya, followed the path of Prapatti
and attained the Moksha state. On the other hand since the one and
only aim of the Jivan in the Moksha state is Kainkaryam to please the
Supreme Being (and then incidentally be pleased looking at the
pleasure of the pleased Supreme Being), why would the Jivan even
"think" about other mundane things such as its previous births?

Requesting to be pardoned for expressing thoughts some of which may
not have any basis at all and looking forward to other responses...
