nathaswami

I am interested in writing in English and Tamil. I like music especially percussion instruments like mirdangam and chenda. I like stories about voyages, the life of primitive civilizations etc. Born in Nagercoil, the headquarters of Kanyakumari district, the southern tip of India, I came to Madras ( yes, the name of the city was Madras when I came here, now it is renamed Chennai) for my living. After working as a teacher, my present calling is insurance agent. I published about seven books in Tamil and two books in English. Five of my Tamil books were selected by the Public Library Department of Tamilnadu. Some of the other books were sold by book-sellers. Others were returned. Neither a promising writer nor a successful insurance agent.
