Puruthiyur Santana Raman is known for his good articles on spiritual
matters.  I have read many of them in the past.  However, since I have stopped all Tamizh and English magazines, I have not been able to read them any longer.  I do not the other things that you have written about him and his wife. I lived in Chennai but not in Mylapore area. So I did not have any opportunity to listen to his discourses. Thanigai in Tamizh means Tiruttani one of Muruga's abodes.  Thanks for all the information.

Dear prasanth and ramanaduli,

There was also one Tenkacchi Swaminathan, who was writing small
stories conveying morals and spiritutal essence.  He was also
speaking on Tamizh TV channels.  I  read recently that he is no more.
