Writer Sujatha (S.Rangarajan) is a renowned person in contermporary tamil literature. More about him and his novels here.
I was introduced to his writings through my father at my 6th grade. The short story I read was in the weekly magazine Kumudham and I fell in love with his writing immediately. Till date I have read almost all his novels, short stories and fictions. He is a great writer and his straight forward opnions most of the time will hit our face staright away.
During my late shcool years I used to read his fictions and note down all the jargons used and pester my science teacher for explanation. She would say “where the hell u read these terms from ?” but I was so fascinated.
My CLICK entry for “Liquid comfort” is showing one of his novels “Pirivom Sandhipom” which talks about desi life. Even though its written in 70’s most of the facts remain unchanged till date.
So much crazy about his writings (my entire family) we named our dog as “Jino” his fiction character in his novel “En Iniya Eyendhira”. As mentioned before I started reading his novels at a very young age when I grew up and my father said his detective duos “Ganesh and Vasanth” are actually imaginary characters it was hard for me to take it!
He passed away last week and I still cannot believe that I cannot read his writings any more. Let his soul rest in peace.
