From: Sadagopan (
Date: Fri Nov 20 1998 - 16:36:05 PST

Dear Sriman IVK CHARY :
Further to my earlier note , I have requested 
Sri Thirumalai Andan Varadhan of US West , Denver,
Colorado to post an article for the benefit of the group.
He has kindly agreed to do so for the benefit of all of us.

I will add to it from the perspective of 
Pahal Patthu-Raa Patthu Uthsavam and NammAzhwAr's
Moksham celebration at Srirangam . This way ,we can
have plenty of joyous information in a timely fashion .
Sri Rengarajan , Sri MadhavakkaNNan and Professor 
VasudhA NaarAyaNan are also very  knowledgable
about these festivities at Srirangam .They may elect to add
more . As you suggested , there might be some postings 
on the subject in the Bhakthi archives . it will be 
wonderful if one can do some search in these huge archives
on a subject/topic basis .That would be a help and perhaps 
soem of the Data Base Experts of the group can help in
this matter . Now we can search by author , date and
thread . Dear Members , Please correct me if I am wrong
on my assessment of the limits of today's search capabilities.
Thanks in advance ,
