Dear BhakthAs :

It is my pleasure to let you know the grand scale
preparations are underway at Mylapore to celebrate 
this event commensurate with the glory of Our ThAyAr ANDAL's
Sri Sookthi in our sampradhAyam. I wish I could
be there personally to enjoy these presentations
and the felicitations for MahA VidvAn U.Ve.
PerukkAraNai Swamy .I am sure you do too !

Number of VidvAns will be speaking from the dais 
on the occasion . I am pleased to let you know
that our own Sri Anand PadmanAbhan , son of 
Sri K.G.K.Swamy will be one of the speakers 
invited to speak on this grand occasion from
the dais . 

Through his upanyAsams on ThiruppAvai 
avathArikai and the first four paasurams , SlOkams 
of YathirAja Sapthathi , PaadhukA Sahasram so far and 
his ongoing work on the release of Abhinava Desika
U.Ve. Sri UtthamUr Swamy's Sri Sookthis ,
Sri Anand is distinguishing himself among 
the circle of Sri VaishNavite Scholars 
in Chennai and else where.

I have requested Sri Anand to send us all 
an eye witness account of the celebrations
on October 11 for our enjoyment . I am glad to
let you know that he has kindly agreed to
post the requested eye witness account inspite of 
his reservations about being the right person to do it. 

On behalf of all of us , I thank Sri Anand 
for this kaimkaryam and wish him continued success 
with his studies of our Kula Dhanams in the KaalakshEpam 
format at the feet of AchAryAs and distinguished scholars
of our revered sampradhAyam .

Best wishes,
