I received an email from the admin for the yearly donation. It is a very good idea. But it did not specify to which address the donation needs to be sent.

I sent a reply back asking for the address but i have not received any information back.

Please let me know to what address the check needs to be sent and also to whom it should be addressed.

Also i would like this yearly fund not to be used for any religious activities. Those can be sponsored by whom ever is interested . I want this fund to be used for educational purpose or for helping needy people.

Dear Kabali:
You are right; we haven't given out the addresses to which these donations should be sent. Please bear with us; we are waiting for opening an account and as soon as this is done, I would give out the account number, bank name, routing number (is this what they call in India?), addresses to which the donations can be sent (if by check/DD) in Chennai and in the US. I would welcome volunteers in other countries to provide their address, collect the funds and send them to us. I will be providing these within a week.

Yes, these funds are strictly on humanitarian grounds, educational assistance to deserving but poor brahmins, etc. We will not use these funds for religious activities.

sir -i also received the mail. but i request you to keep the minimum amount as 500./- instead of the present 2000. also is their provision to pay by credit card online? ( in THAMBRASS THEY HAVE THIS PROVISION) that would be very easy for persons like me.

Dear Suresh:
Thank you for stepping up to donate. Please, any donation is STRICTLY voluntary and any amount is NOT TOO SMALL. We were only suggesting about Rs.2,000. Of course, we wouldn't want any member to suffer financially.
As Praveen has pointed out, one can donate whatever they can afford.

Sorry, Suresh, we are not that sophisticated to accept Credit Cards!! By the way, if I were you, I wouldn't waste my money on TAMBRAM. I am sorry to say this but they are completely useless; Praveen approached them a few times; we called but nobody calls back. It appears that TAMBRAM is run by a bunch of guys trying to promote themselves and their agenda. I don't see any proclamations or protests from them every time Mr. K announces something against Brahmins. If they were truly for the upliftment of our community, how come nobody has contacted us so far to see how we could combine our efforts?

Silverfox has a point.

for credit card payments, i am sure we can accomodate one or two people. i wont be able to say for sure it will work, but we can accept payments via paypal though its not a "preferred" option.

I feel that the funds should be sent By chq, drawn un favorr of Tamil brahmins .com in India or abroad and tamil brahmins.com should open an account in India in any Well Known bank /or alternativly , the auhorised bank address the chq should be sentwith a reciept from bank, followed by an acknowledgement by tamilbrahmins.comwith a posting in the web site

Even if TAMBRAS is willing to help we should not take their help. we should do on our own. Due to TAMBRAS only we are facing lots of hardship in this regime. This TAMBRAS openly supported BJP in this election and because of this we are being targetted by DMK on the pretext of some other stuffs.

Dear Sir, Jaya Jaya Sankara,
I aggree withyou sir, I had a talk with a member , he also has expressed the same view . As already posted by me to day I do feel it will be a burial place for Tamil Brahmins if they are entrusted with this job on behalf of Tamil Brahmins. Better that we members select course ourself to facilitate members to freely contribute and maintain the holy cause of Tamil Brahmins. Infact we have to watch that this forum shold not be used for self esteem . Every member has to think of the holy cause/ work of Tamil Brahmins.com
Hara Hara Sankara

sir - pls..pls.. hold on! abusing and targetting brahmins on one pretext or other has always been favourite pastime of the muthuvelar. he is suffering from inferioriity complex against brahmins & it can be cured only by medical treatment. actually, 'rationalism' is also a form of inferiority complex.
a govt. should be 100% neutral, as it is run out of taxpayers
money.what sort of a govt is this, that targets a caste because an association representing that caste supported a rival party in elections? if what Mr. Kabali says is true, this is a fascist govt. TAMBRAS is in no way responsible for our hardships. actually, the allegation is that TAMBRAS is not reacting to DMK's abuses on brahmins with aggression and vigour!!! TAMBRAS and our forum have same objective. only the ways are different. we should not belittle them just because they are not functioning in an aggresive manner. that is their style of functioning. i do not see anything wrong in that!

Oops. Let us hold our horses a little here. I am quite aware of the fact that TAMBRAS have done very little to help our community and they can and could have done much more. But let us not forget that we all belong to the same community. Let us not make statements like we should not take the help of TAMBRAS even if they offer. I would suggest let us take the help of anyone, if it will help our community. Infighting is the root cause of the problems our community is facing today.

What ultimately matters is whether we are able to organize ourselves as a community which can take care of its members.

BTW, MK and his friends have always been against Tamil Brahmins whether we support him or not. Remember DMK came to power because of the support given by Rajaji. That has not stopped MK from heaping atrocities on our community. Besides, a lot of Tamil Brahmins this year voted for MK as a mark of protest against Madam J for arresting Kanchi Sankaracharya. Not that it has helped change MK's attitude towards our community. So let us not say that because of TAMBRAs DMk is hating us. They will hate us whether we support them or not.

Tambrams!

Hi Ramki, I agree with you. I hope they will contact us for any help. They (TAMBRAMS) should know that we are in this together.

To all members: Unlike TAMBRAMS, tamilbrahmins.com does not have an hierarchy or grand titles such as President, etc.

Praveen started this; Ramki and I help out for the sole cause of upliftment of our community. Here every member counts and every member can question anything that we do; rightfully so.

Silver Fox,

Eagerly awaiting your announcement on details.

Thanks Ramki for the call .. I will try and get the full details and post it on the forum tomrw. Since we havent formed a proper trust as yet , it becomes difficult to ask for help. Your call and help is much appreciated .
