Dear Sri Krishnan Ayyangar,

You wrote :
If I recall correctly, Mr Shastri who wrote the
original letter, wanted some guidance on the
sociological aspects of the issue. While belief is one
thing that cannot be compromised, matter being given
to a research scholar should be unbiased.

I have to request that each one of us willing to give
his/her considered opinion should exercise only the
test of truth and not of sentiment when discussing
something of immense sociological value.

While I agree fully with your above views, I would also like to state that
messages posted by myself, Sri Varadhan and Sri Narayanan, clearly
DISPROVES, that the belief is wrong there by answering Sri Shastri's
question, "Is there any historic evidence to prove this".

No one can argue that the sentiments of a particular sect will not be
disturbed by this question. However, all these postings, though written
with a sentimental touch, once again, as said above, DISPROVES, the belief
or even the claim made by some people.

And I sincerely believe, that there was no bias in the replies. If anybody
can really come out with strong proof in support of such belief, it is
