     PROLOGUE

May be due to predominance of theistic impulses a little more in me I developed a passion for visiting temples since school days, and that inborn mania is allowed to continue unabated despite the impact of western culture thrust upon me by the profession chosen and the post held for about 35 years. As irony would have it, infatuation grew faster than my age and made me spin round, as it were, almost all the reputed temples in India. I toured in all the states, except those lying to the east of West Bengal. and stayed couple of days in everyone of them; and months in several place like Banaras, Calcutta, Madurai etc. To cap it, as it were, for five years now in Tirupathi -- the holiest of holies, where Suprabhatam wakes up and charges the entire atmosphere with Bhagavannama that fuels the souls to sustain till going to bed. Additionally, my living in Tamil Nadu-the veritable temple state for two decades enabled me grabbing the opportunity of visiting every great hoary temple for dozens of times.
