It is a joy to have our dear Kulapati Jiva Rajasankara here from India. He and Kulamata Kanmani and their two sons Senthil and Thurai have been the pillars of strength for the Iraivan temple operations in India.
Jiva is here on pilgrimage and to take the current team of silpis back to India as their Visas have expired and a new team will be sent over.
Good to have you with us Jiva!
