Sir, It was interesting to read the short biography of Mahan Sri Seshadri Swamigal, (FR-3, dt. 01/02/2013) written by Sridhar-Chaama, in lucid English that every devotee-cum-reader will cherish. But there were a few errors in the article that I would like to point out.

In the paragraph reading ‘Born to a pious couple Kamakoti Sastri and Maragadam......,’ it should be Varadharaja Josier and Maragadam. Maragadam's father was Chidambara Sastri and Kamakoti sastri was Chidambara Sastri's brother.

To quote exactly the date of birth of Sri Seshadri Swamigal, he was born on January 22, 1870; Tamil Sukhla Year, Thai month, 11th day, Panchami.

In the last but one paragraph which read that Swamigal shed his mortal coil on January 1, 1929. The date should be January 4, 1929; Tamil Vibhava year, Margazhi month, 21st day, Navami.
