Please respond to venkataraman at

My dear Namesake,

Namassabhaabhyassabhaapatibhayasca vo namaH.

The earth has gone round the Sun seventy times since I was born.
Forty of these years were spent earning my bread as a technocrat in
the Telecommunications department of the Govt, of India.
 Samskritam and Vedaanta have been my hobbies for well nigh half a
century.  Yet my knowledge of these two is only sketchy and
peripheral, though non-zero.

I am now visiting with my 35-year old son Venkataraman who works for
Motorola in Singapore
That accounts for the "sg" in my email address.

I hope to take a lot from this group though
I may not be able to give anything to it.
