Media reports regarding the massive treasure found in a Vishnu Temple of South India have triggered a debate over the future control of the assets, which include diamonds, precious stones, gold and silver, some with antique and historic values.While a section of the devotees want them to be maintained as it is, another wants them to be used for renovating the lesser-rich temples.However, the secular sections of the society have demanded utilisation of the wealth for the welfare of the people as a whole./The annual month-long special Maha Ganapati homam will be performed from July 17 (Sunday) to August 17 (Wednesday) at Sri Muthannaval Samadhi, Sengalipuram village, Tiruvarur district.A number of vedic scholars, led by A. Advarapathy Dikshitar, Agnihotri and Mantramurthy of Sengalipuram, hailing from the family of the late Sengalipuram Anantharama Dikshitar (Vedic scholar and Harikatha exponent), will perform the homam from 7 a.m. every day. Devotees who wish to participate in the homams and contribute can obtain details from Advarapathy Dikshitar, Agraharam, Sengalipuram, Tiruvarur district - 612604.For further details call 04366-262274./Domestic Abuse is a global phenomenon. Hindu society is also plagued by this crisis. Yet it is generally ignored as a private matter.Why the reluctance to deal with social issues in our Hindu community? We have countless Seminars/Conferences on all topics one can imagine and never have we heard of Hindus organising any to deal with social issues in the Hindu home. Whom do Hindus go to when they have social problems? Are the Pujaris/Swamis/Religious leaders equipped to handle such scenarios? Why is there this great denial that there are serious problems in the Hindus home that needs to be addressed?
