trip to MelKote..
  • Hi All,

    Having a wonderful vacation (this is the first time in 5 days I am even
    touching a comp) Anyway, visited Melkottai near Mysore yesterday. Was taken
    around the place by a gentleman who is a descendent of one of the 52
    families who settled there with Ramanujachariar. Also visited the sanskrit
    research academy there where they are working on preserving and digitising
    ancient manuscripts. Also saw a couple of softwares that they have
    developed.. one for teaching Sanskrit and the other which is "Amarakosha"..
    a thesaurus. Quite an interesting trip overall.

Howdy, Stranger!
