Sundara Ramaswamy

He was one of the finest contemporary Tamil writers. Despite a writing career spanning some fifty years, the volume of his writings is relatively small though it cuts across genres – short stories, novels, poems, essays, criticism, translation and polemic. His stories are marked by conscious experiments with form. All his three novels are watersheds in the history of the Tamil literary scene. Oru puliamaratthin Kadhai, is the first dialect novel in Tamil. He is known for his stylistic prose, the scalpel-like precision of his diction and the metaphorical use of language. He is the recipient of the Kumaran Asan Memorial Award for poetry from the University of Toronto and the Tamil Literature Garden of Canada. His works have been translated into Indian and European languages and he has travelled abroad extensively for literary talks and discussions.
