Actually Tamil has letters for both sounds of 'la'.

I'd like the government to look at changing the weekly holidays. Sundays were primarily a Christian thing.

Tuesdays and Saturdays are better. There should be flexibility on when Hindus can attend schools and offices. It will help people go to the temple and take part in the rituals.

I would say don't bring Ram or Krishna. Family deities are usually one of the Amman. People pray to them more than any other. Even Murugan temples are visited as a pilgrimage. Everyday temple visits are to the local vinayagar kovils or ayyappan kovils.
