AchAryAs', intend to have a day long NAMA convention on May the 29th,
on Vaikaasi Visaakham, Thirunakshathram of Kula Pathi Sri SaTagOpar-

Please find below the agenda. We will be extremely delighted if someone 
(either from the West or from India/Bahrain) could make it to grace
the occasion.

A small step for Simhapuri chapter of NAMA, in the lines of great
Conferences conducted in Dallas, Denver etc.. 

We do not have the likes of Sri V Sadagopan, Sri Anbil Ramaswamy,
Sri Mani, Sri Anand, Sri Varadan, Sri Nadaur Madhavan et al, among
our speakers at Singapore...But, We do have  their aseervaathams and
the best wishes to see through the convention.... (Already about 85
persons have registered (about ~ 30 families) to attend.)
