My Yahoo crashed while I hit the sent button for this mail. I
am resending it in a brief form.


kAnchi paramAcharya says one should keep shika and it is an
obligation to iishwara. But he does not elaborate on it.

Why should one keep shika? I am not asking it out of academic
interest. For the last one year, I am contemplating on this to
keep one. My inner conviction has not become strong enough to
defeat the mediocrity. I should just obey aacharya's command,
again durvasana-s do not go away overnight.

Why do we say "shikAyai vashat" during anga nyAsa?

paramAcharya, says that one should wear pancha-kachcham, have
shika and wear the religious marks.  Even it is outwardly in the
beginning, it is fine he says, over the time this first step will
bring real inner change.
