  1. Thank you very much for uploading Brahmotsavam pictures. I am resident of West Mambalam. I came to Botswana in connection with consultancy work for a couple of weeks, the time exactly when Brahmotsavam is taking place. So I am missing the perumal vahana purappadu, goshti and the electrifying experience there. YOur noble kainkaryam is giving the viewing pleasure, though I could not be physically present there.

    Your Kainkarya Sri Vardhathaam, Abhivardhataam
