Dear Sri Sridhar: There are number of articles in
the Bhakthi archives list on Arayar sevai already.
They have been written during the Srirangam Vaikunta Ekadasi 
time ,Thirukkurungudi Kaisika Ekadasi time ; there are also
special web site known as Arangam by Smt.Anita Ratnam ,
who has done research on the topic . 

You may wish to refer to them.

The recent articles on "SaathvikA Abhinayam also deal 
with this topic.Sri Sreyas Sarangan also posted  an
article recently on Smt.Usha Devi's kaimakryam in
this area and a forthcoming performance at LA Temple.

NamO NaarAyaNAya ,
