While adding index to Chapter 11 #Vedic #Courts in Tamil Nadu, the Land of Vedas (#TTLV) authored by my father Dr. #Nagaswamy, I came across this fantastic reference that Appa quotes "Ancient Hindu Judicature" authored by G.R. Rao in the year 1920.

Appa writes "Yājñavalkya was an extraordinary personality whose code is admired even by modern exponents of Law. "

I watched #KantaraMovie today and was thrilled while watching the #Varaha #Worship scenes. Appa had narrated a story where some 20+ years back he travelled with forest rangers deep into the south Canara forest in the middle of the night to see Bhuta worship dance and ritual.

He took some amazing photographs with his film camera very similar to the visuals in the movie. We are trying to locate those photographs. Will share it soon.

I watched Rishab Shetty's interview in #Tamil and what a conviction in his #Hindu #Belief (#Deiva_Vazhipadu)! Appa would have loved this movie!

Congrats to the entire #KantaraMovie team for bringing out our regional traditions and culture to #entertainment field🙏.

1. I am looking for volunteers to edits certain books and articles of Dr. R. #Nagaswamy with editing skills in Tamil, Sanskrit and English. The editing part involves critically checking consistencies, diacritical marks for Tamil and Sanskrit according to international standards.
2. Many articles and books are written in British English and needs checking for grammar. Inline references need to be verified with end of the chapter Notes and References.

@KanchiMatham, @kalabaski
