The Internet has come to influence almost every activity in this world and is a combination of the sublime and distressing. It is sometimes blamed for a lot of ills that society is facing now.What is less realized is that the Internet is just a medium of communication and a repository of information; the ills or benefits are dependent entirely on us, the people, who fill this mediumwith inputs. In this context, it is laudable that a young person has chosen to use this powerfulmedium for the benefit of humanity.Dear 
Anand Vasudevan
knows this electronic medium well. He realizes its astonishing power to reach out and connect people. But what makes him different from many others is that he haschosen to use it to propagate higher-order values that are fast diminishing in this alarminglycommercial and mercenary world.This E-magazine,
Amritha Varshini
launched by him is an unusual but fascinating combina-tion of spirituality and values for day-to-day living. I say unusual because, most people tend to
view spirituality as a topic for the „old and retired‟. By coming out in electronic form,
AmrithaVarshini
reaches out to the young as much as the old and breaks any age-bias. Some people
who are Thirukkural „experts‟ tend to speak impressively about the great saint‟s teachings, but
actual practice of these principles is not seen. The Carnatic music trinity were more saints than
„music composers‟. They spoke the language of spirituality and divinity through music.
 To a lay man, there is somewhere a disconnect between what is heard in eloquent speeches andwhat is practiced around. There seem to be several queries and doubts even before the podiummicrophone is switched off, but the eloquent speaker who kindled curiosity is already sur-
rounded by „devotees‟ and whisked away. The lay man continues to nurse a thirsty mind.
 
Amritha Varshini
is intended to bridge this disconnect by presenting in simple, common-
man‟s language, the topics that arouse curiosity.
 Hinduism itself is about life and how we go through the spiritual progression to a higher planeof consciousness. Along this path of progression are the guiding values and traditions that keepus on course.
Today‟s world has plenty of seekers who need inputs on spirituality and human values in a de
-mystified manner. This e-magazine promises to offer just that.I pray to the Almighty to give Anand Vasudevan the joyous energy to take this noble initiativeto wider frontiers.
