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🙏.

Swarajya Magazine referencing Appa (Dr. #Nagaswamy) with reference to #KantaraMovie Bhoota Kola…

Appa has written about #Bhootavrata, will share soon 🙏.

I am sharing one after another, scanned from old fashioned slide film on October 1999 and hence taken well before that.

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
3. Some of you have graciously agreed to help us in the editing process. Dr. #Nagaswamy's work in monumental and we need an army of volunteers to preserve his work in a timely manner for the current and future generations. We are greatly indebted to volunteers for helping us 🙏.
