Sujatha...Phenomenon

Now that i hav sum time to blog i want to say about the tamil writer sujatha(pseudonym of Rangarajan)..he passed away recently and I happened to cum across this Diwali spl issue from "The times of India" in tamil..half of it was dedicated to sujatha...

I ve been familiar with his works for many yrs now..even as a layman reader not even knowing that sujatha was a man I devloped enormous respect for him by reading just 2 books of his(mere novels)..

If u love run-of-the-mill lits, stay away frm him.But if u want to b stimulated,inspired,shocked and made to ponder jus try him once and u ll kno...his inimitable style often carries subtle yet sharp humour(even that is never ordinary)...
"yarum idikkama ponum na college ku INCUBATOR la dan poganum."-frm ANNIYAN.

He was the only author in tamil whose works I followed consistently.As for others,it was a 'one-nite stand':)..lolzz. If ther s sumone out ther like me, this issue I told u abt is a MUST READ.

apart frm sum gr8 works of his,it displays many of his essays reflecting his opinions and thoughts on every other issue/topic.And articles frm ppl who knew him...reading it was like taking a fleeting journey thru his life. also,try

Finally,the cliche "U ll live on in our hearts and in your literature."Only,here its true...
