Dear Mr. George Abraham,

I am very happy to know that my write-ups on Travancore caught your interest. Do feel free to include excerpts from my articles in your work. Since I have a limited space for my column, I have not included all the details in these write-ups, so if you need any further information, do let me know.
Happy to know the details about your projects, the books on Colonial Bungalows will be more interesting in a historical as well as architectural point of view.
I have now shifted to Thiruvananthapuram, my hometown, where I work at College of Engineering Trivandrum (CET), as Asst. Prof. (Dept of Architecture). Anyways, I would look forward to meeting you soon.

Thanks again,
Sharat Sunder Rajeev
