Hi, My name is Srinivasan and I am a graduate student pursuing an M. S. in Biomedical Engineering at Ohio State. I was introduced to this group by a friend, Mukunthan and have been watching the activities here over the past few days. I read some of your intros. Many of you seem to have more than a passing knowledge of vaishnavism, an area that I am not too familiar with inspite of coming from a vaishnava family. I don't have too strong a belief in God. nevertheless, i enjoy reading the thiruppaavai and visiting the parthasarathi perumal koyil. these and the annual aavani-avittam form my list of 'vaishnava' activities. i would like to do more like reading the thiruvaaymozhi, for example (someday, i hope). I have always been interested in hindu philosophy, particularly that of the acharyas - Sankara, Ramanuja and Madhva. so when i heard about your discussion group, i was interested. I like the idea of the CD project and would like to be involved. Will be writing to Mr. Dileepan in detail. Here's to good discussions and successful projects. -Srinivasan -- "If it wasn't for C, we would be using BASI, PASAL, and OBOL."
