() is a transgressive
, post-modern Tamil literature
writer. He began writing at a very young age, and since then, has traversed the road less travelled, for over 35 years. He lives in Chennai
His first novel is 'Existentialisamum Fancy Baniyanum'. It had an entirely different way of storytelling that shattered the cultural beliefs about the body and mind, considered until then a taboo. It was about how a young man overcomes the angst of his life through his writings. The emergency regime which affected the Indian life in the seventies and the lives of a few friends which were sacrificed in the naxal movement and the French existential thought were the key factors which made him write this novel.Presently he is writing column "Manam Kothi Paravai" in Tamil weekly Anandha Vikatan
His next novel, his Magnum Opus Zero Degree
is considered to be one of the best in transgressive fiction , as it completely transformed what is termed as taboo - sex, violence and crime, to a very different plane, which is a beautiful, heartwarming literature. It had also been reviewed by various magazines and has proven its mettle.
His next novel ‘Raasa Leela’ proved to be a satire on governmental red tape-ism and the nuances of the novel successfully portray pragmatically the cry of a man lost amidst the numerous, colossal walls and pillars of the labyrinth that the system has created, his agony and his thirst to break the shackles.
