Alarmel Mangai Thayar

Dear Bhagavathottamas,

My letter was only to raise these issues and not oppose the action 
suggested by Jagannath. As I mentioned in the letter, we must protest. I 
was only suggesting if our sending letters will have a greater impact or 
our joining synergies with those who are already taking up these issues 
will. So while in spirit I agree with Jaganath's proposal for protest, my 
suggestion was in letter, on the form. 

As you know the postal system in India, the efficacy of that form of 
protest is insignficant unless we want to use it as a legal evidence. 

A humble submission : normally Thayar is not referred to as Smt. When we 
say some one is Srimati that means she has the blessing os thayar (Sri). 
So when we say srivenkateswar, it means Venkateswara Perumal along with 
Sri i.e. thayar because they are inseparable and in our sampradaya, 
perumal and thayar are always together. 

With regards
