Way back in 1989, during one of the National Seminars, which he participated, Dr. Sthapati happened to meet Dr.N.Mahalingam, an eminent scholar and Industrialist, Tamil Nadu, who strongly advised him to write on the subject of Vaastu science and technology for some significant reasons. He felt that there is an urgent necessity to publish this significant spiritual science of India, so as to attract the scholars around the globe and initiate more research studies in this field. Also he opined that Tamils, though they have abundant love for Tamil culture prefer to read the English version of the science. This elderly advice motivated him to write a series of books on the science and technology of the tradition under the coveted titled 'A Shilpi Speaks'. Now after having gone through these informative works, the Tamil people have approached him to write all these works in Tamil also, so that they could capture the essence of their science based culture in their own language itself.
