[Sidefx-houdini-list] Mantra Vray Procedural Transformation Problem

I am writing a Mantra Vray Procedural. What I want to do is , read a
bgeo file, say A,which has some 100 points, and read another bgeo file
B, which is to be copied
on the 100 points in geo A.

I am reading file A in pointGdp, and file B in archiveGdp.

and the calls to the mantra functions are like this, 



	pointPos	=	pointPtr->getPos();





        addGeometry(archiveGdp, 0);

	setSurface("showst type st");



The problem I am facing is, the object translation is happening in

screen space and not world space. Is there any other special function, 

other than "setTransform" to do that???

Even I tried using   xform.translate(i,0,0); and incremented "i" each time,

just to check, and it is getting translated in screen space.

Plz Help
