>Respected Sir,

>Yesterday (i.e) on the 26th of September, HH the Azhagiya Singar's visit to 
>the Sanskrit Academy at Melkote was organised.

>The Jeeyar arrived at the premises of the Academy at around 4.45 pm local 
>time to a grand pporna kumbha swaagatam with mangala vaadyams etc. HH was 
>taken around the campus, the museum , the library etc. before HH arrived 
>at the computer section.

>HH first saw the programs developed for Sanskrit by the Sanskrit 
>Academy.  He then had a long view of the Ramanuja CD ROM. Though there 
>was a slight technical snag, HH was able to grasp the concept very well.  
>The concepts of Multi-media, interactive communications etc. were briefly 
>explained to HH as this was the first time HH was seeing a computer 
>program as well as a Multi-Media presentation.  
>
>Afterwards, when HH was requested to adress the gathering, HH profusely 
>lauded the efforts of the Sanskrit Academy in general and especially 
>referring to the medium of computers, said that these efforts are to be 
>supported by all means.  HH made references to many aspects of our 
>Sampradayam and said that this is a universal Sampradayam and efforts are 
>to be done to also show that it is universal.  HH also promised to give 
>all help from His side for the same.

>I will give more details about HH's visit to Melkote where the 
>celebrations are in full swing to commemorate the 600th birthday of 
>Sri Adivan Satakopa Mahaadesikan, in a couple of days. I also have 
>photos of HH viewing the CD which I will send as attachments 
>in due course.
