• > Instead of talking in General, we are getting into specifics. Good.

    That reminds me.
    How are we going along with PSVP ? I saw some initial agenda during the
    formation of the peravai. Should we get into some specific things and
    start working towords that ? That will result in focus of energies. We
    could brainstrom on what can be taken up as the first project or so..

    Any thoughts ?
  • Dear Gokul,

    After seeing the Big Temple, I thought we should bring
    about an exclusive, collectors edition book on Raja
    Raja Cholan. That could be our first project.
  • -an informative website should be the firsat plan.
    with so many computer experts

    inscription details
    walk tro plan

    anything you need to know about the temple should be there.

    the materiel can go on to become a book later
  • If we make it on a website, then the interest on the
    book will be lost :-( But a CDROM with a virtual tour
    along with a narration by a scholar such as Dr.
    Kudavayil will be an attraction. The CDROM should be
    bundled with the book.
  • Discovery Channel has released a CD on Egypt. The
    narrator sailing in a boat on Nile and the story of
    Egypt and the pyramids and the kings told in a very
    interesting way; the viewer is virtually taken on a
    tour of the pyramid. Very professional. With crossword
    games, puzzles and quiz, it makes the information very

    We should do something like that.

    Before getting into details I wish to know if a collection on Rajaraja -
    be it website or otherwise - is the project we are embarking on
