Dear Sastry Garu, Please let me know whether this book "SHRAADDHA - PITRPOOJE-ONDU OLANOTA" is available in english/hindi/telugu as it will be difficult for me to read & follow kannada although i understand little. As several people asks for for the procedures & its importance of shraddha in todays busy schedules, if some one translates to english , then it will be useful to the many people across the country. Thanks & regardsKameswara
