    Dear Professor,

    I came across a mention of your book Kāvya while looking for information about dating of Tamil Sangam literature. I was fascinated by what the book had to say and wanted to buy one. However, I am unable to find a copy of that book in India and what I found did not have a reasonable price (six thousand plus rupees is five times the reasonable price for academic books and quite costly to say the least). I am also not able to find the material online. Could a short summary about just the dating part be made available on this site, please, for people like me who are eager to read about that?

    Yours faithfully,
    Vinay
