    Hi Meenakshi,

    I really like the blog about “Bogar and the secrets of Dhandapaani”. I was searching information about Bogar and your blog was so impressed.. Thank you a lot..

    Your writeup on the degeneration of ‘The Hindu’ is factual and quite good. You have forgotten to mention the despicable role they played during Indira Gandhi’s Emergency days. The name ‘ The Hindu’ is a misnomer. It is well known that they are anti Hindu and will go out of the way to please their ‘Sambhandis’ as you would say. Not that TOI is a better alternative but for sheer want of a bettter choice. This is our pathetic plight. I wonder when will all these change.

      Thank you Gopal. Agree with you 100%. One of my friends works for creating this ad!! They are working in preparing more such nonsense. I saw the drafts and they are just showing their “gaandu” on the Chennai Times. 🙂 🙂

    This refers to you article of July 13th ( Sorry I read it only now) regardng the dance of Shiva.
    I was introduced to the book ‘The Tao of Physics ‘ by Fritjof Capra and could hardly discuss the book with anyone save just one or two. I never though a day would come when I would someone discussing the book. Yes way back in the 70’s the cosmic dance of Shiva and its relevance to the cosmos was discussed in scientific parlance. Indeed the ancients ‘knew’

    Hi Meenakshi,

    i’m actually stunned after reading your article about tamil. hats off! what you are doing here is marvelous. keep up the momentum going. i have a personal request, could you translate Valluvar”s “Kural” in english i mean not the meaning but the “kural” so that we can read and understand most of it. i can speak very good tamil but unfortunately i’m not tamil educated i can’t read and write in tamil.

    this will help not only me but others who are sailing in the same bot with me as well. kindly consider.

    Thank you.

    Nishan 🙂

    Hi Nishan,

    Thanks for your comment. I am very glad that someone actually likes what I write. 🙂 🙂

    Translating the Kural is quite a task and I am currently not up to it. I am also working on a few other articles and do not have time at the moment.

    Anyway, multiple translations of the Kural are already available. In fact, it remains one of the most translated works in the world. You can check the link – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tirukku%E1%B9%9Ba%E1%B8%B7 – for Kural translation books in English/ any other language.

    Much as I admire Rajaji’s books, I would recommend not to buy his Thirukkural translation. It is not as good as his other books.

    Once again, thanks for the comment and feedback. This kind of encouragement keeps me going. 🙂 🙂

    Hello Meenakshi,

    I was actually googling and trying to get contact information of Ms.Padmini Iyer and ended up in your blog about her and Ph.D program. Do you happen to have her contact information by any chance. I went to HSSS, indiranagar like 100 years ago.
    You can email me kal_ram1@yahoo.com.

    Hi Meenakshi,

    I just happened to come across your blog.I suppose you are the d-i-l of Shri Ranganathan, Mohan’s brother.I had last met Shri Rangathan about 40 years back in Chennai (in Nungambakkam I suppose)

    I and Mohan studied together from 1st standard to B.Sc at Tirupattur. I used always wonder about his scholarly and professional achievements. I am fortunate to have a friend like him.

    Best wishes to you & your family

    Hi Meenakshi

    I was searching for the details of sweta kethu and landed in your site. Enjoyed your write up which is not only interesting to read but informative. I enjoyed your blog on Madras thamil. My son’s mate once told me” Uncle, avanaiyum ittukinnu vaanga lunchukku”. and padu Bejaaru. Interesting.
