I repeat do not be judgemental.

You quoted the example, you provided explanation for your example, now you 
are issuing a clarification for your explanation.

One just cant stop but wonder how nicely you state non-difference and bring

If vandhyA can have putra, I mean cause of the effect, non existing avidya 
can be the cause of the effect prarabdha, in your above cited case.
