Dear friends,

I fullyl support the statements of Sri Nadadoor Madhavan.  Sri Sadagopan's
capacity and all-round knowledge has made this memorial weekend conference
a "SUPERB EXPERIENCE".  He has extracted the best out of every person who
attended the conference and offered it to the lotus feet of Sri
Venkateshwara.  Each conference is getting to be an example which is
becoming difficult to match by future conferences.  Only our dear acharyas
and almighty should keep the conferences progress in future with such
fervour and richness of experience.
