Scholars in Sanskrit/Veda/Indian history/Culture from all over India Participated and presented papers in the Seminars.

Anyonyam is being conducted for eight days in the middle of November every year and on almost all days of anyonyam, National Seminar was conducted from 3 P.M to 6 P.M presenting two or three papers on each day. Thus about twenty research papers were presented in the Seminar each year exploring the possibilities of Vedic Studies in different dimensions connecting the traditional and modern approaches with an interdisciplinary perspective.

In all these collections papers in English of scholars of national reputation are included translating them into Malayalam Still another volume in Malayalam Vedavanmayam Navasarasnikalum Putukazcakajum containing years will be published in Anyonyam festival in November 2007.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
