About The Author
“PULAVAR” R. VISWANATHAN considers himself as a student of Tamil literature even at the age of eighty (Date of Birth 30-10-1931). Born in a middle class ordinary family, Tamil language and its rich classic literature inspired him and he used to enjoy nuances contained therein. Though studied commerce and graduated to support his family, his fanatic love for Tamil literature neither faded nor diminished. He moved to Delhi in July 1955 for his livelihood and living there since then. Delhi Tamil Sangam revived his inherent love of Tamil literature and Dr. Saalai Ilanthiraian nurtured and rejuvenated his enthusiasm to study Sangam literatures, Thirukkural, Silappadhikaram, Kamba Ramayanam, poems of Bharathiyar etc and helped him to obtain diploma title “PULAVAR” and the degree of B.Lit. in Tamil literature. Commitments in office prevented him further studies but never curbed his passion in Tamil literature.
