Meyyappan and Devi, with daughter Parvati and son Arvind, are visiting for the second time from the San Francisco Bay Area after a seven-year gap. This time they brought Meyyappan's father Ramanathan who is visiting them from India. Ramanathan said he lives in the same city near Karaikudi that the late Ganapati Sthapati (original Iraivan Temple architect) was from.
The family enjoys our What is Hinduism book and our assistance to improve the presentation of Hinduism in school textbooks. Parvati explained that when she was in 6th grade, her class was majority Indian and when it came time to study India and Hinduism, the students were getting upset with the poor textbook material. Thankfully, the teacher invited the students to present their own material instead of what was in the book.
