Mr.Varadarajan and other like minded members::
Ihave been going through all the postings of various members very particularly that of Mr. Soundarrajan. I do not know why Mr.S.Rajan never tried to focusson brahmins matters instead of showing great interest in all other matters. Day-in and day-out our community is undergoing alot of hardships including the evergoing intercaste marriages, eloping with other caste boys and girlsnot to speak about parents themselves encouring such marriages.. Infact I wanted to start adebate on this subject but am not sure how many of our forum members join the debata and take active part in it. I do not want to proceed in the matter unless I a m sure of quite a number of members taking part in it. I now noticed that most of the new members joined very recently in our forum show great interest in our community's culture,past heritage, anmeekamm etc.,Those who are really interested in our community's welfare particularly who oppose intercaste marriages may mention their names under the heading "Joining the debate" .The debate

Your style is changed to "Default" (which you can change yourself in the "Settings" page)
You will not get the quick menu till there is no changes made in the style option.

Though the default style isalso good I feel like isolated while using the page. May i request you to revert to my user page to old 'back to basics' of course removing the entry of side popup of newsliding quick menu. Hope this is possible for you to change...Narasimhan

Dear Sir,
The forum default style is changed to "Default" from "Back to Basics" style for all
so, you are not isolated.
This can be conformed by using the below link by any member:
After getting that page scroll down to bottom and check at the "Forum Skin" Tab
You will find the active style (Default) for you.
You change that style to "Forum Default" style, this will not make any changes for you because
already you are in the same style.

Note:- Whenever a member want to change any of the forum settings to personalize for them
Please use the below steps:
1. Click the "Settings" menu found at the top right corner of any page.
2. After getting the new window you will find a list of "My Settings" menu as shown in the picture below:

A very detailedd descriptions on settings! I was not aware of many of these as I was not keen on probing to knowwhat all are possible .
Thanks for enlightening us,
It is exhaustive and informative, but we seniors will take some time to read it slowly and understand it fully.
Thanks again for patiently clarifying.

Dear Swamin,
I feel, It is my duty to explain everything for members who are interested.
Thanks for your compliments.

Of late (may be for a week or less), we see an ad in TV where a smartha Brahmin [with vibhuthi and poonal] ,on a scooter approaches a singer in a car and requests for an opportunity to sing in a competition and the singer mockingly says ' oh, here also' and drives away; somehow I felt this is demeaning; the opportunity seeker could have been shown as anyone but without Brahmins' caste symbols. I do not think this as a funny advertisement but as an insult to the particular community.

25-02-2015, 09:44 AM
I dont find any degrading or demeaning in the reply. Could you please explain in what way it seems to be demeaning to you.

25-02-2015, 10:37 AM
Could you elaborate as to which Advt. you are referring to? If possible we can check up and judge.
Please provide details of the Ad.
