Foot prints of Ramanuja in Melnadu -Book Review

Dear Bhakthas,
Adiyen had the opportunity to read the Book “Foot prints of Ramanuja in Melnadu “by Sriman. Lakshmi-narismhan Sridhar of Bangaluru.  Here adiyen wish to inform everybody that the author of this book, is the Sub-Editor of our Srivaishnavism  Internet Weekly Magazine and also the  Secretary  of Srivaishnavism  Kainkarya  Sabha.  From the page 1 to the end the book is very interesting to read, in simple language.  Even School children can read and understand Srivaishnava Philosophy  and also the Book will lead the young minds in right path.
Readers can understand after reading the book how much  troubles Sri Ramanuja faced in his life to promote Visishtadwaidha Sidhanthams.  The author has clarified and cleared the minds of the readers by explaining, how  a powerful man like Ramanuja , not used his powers to kill the Chola King.  The Author compared this,   with Lord SriRama’s action  is very nice.  Unless his Sishyas did not take the steps to send him to Melnadu with White robes, we would not have got Thirunarayana Perumal of Melkottai. 
Thro’ the mouth of  VVIP s from Vaikunta and  Srikara Swamigal ,(  famous Upanyasakar of present days, whose speciality is that he gives Discourses in English to reach the younger generation ),         the author gave us small, small stories like “”Vairamudi Sevai “ etc.  Not only Srivaishnavas but all the Hindus should read this book to understand Vishnavism and who is a true Vaishnavite. 
The author in many places emphasized how the whole atmosphere is spoiled by the people by throwing plastic   covers, and wastages.
The Book is full of beautiful   and rare photo collections.
The author made us to sit in our easy chairs to travel Melnadu and to have the dharshan of all Perumals of Melnadu.
The author should bring many more books like this to serve our Srivaishnava Community.
