Thanks, Palaniappan, for this nice article.  Pune is indeed a leader in this movement.  Every year, during the Ganesh festival, thousands of women gather on the streets to chant the Ganesha Atharvashirsha collectively.  It was my sister who performed the wedding of one of my daughters, and she did a terrific job of it.
