  1. Dear Mr.Vijay, it was an evening full of nostalgic memories and wonder at the knowledge of our friends about the ‘sanga’period coins.Your presentation about the ajanta and big temple was really worth living for.It was indeed a feast, though had to leave early without interacting with Maniam Selvan.Though I had raved about Maniam’s illustrations during my teens, and tried to copy a few, I had never seen his photograph.The slides shown at the meet by Ma Se, enabled me to have a look at ‘idol’of my teens and motivator of my taking art seriously.Thanks for everrything.
