One of the most versatile of contemporary Tamil writers,
Sundara Ramaswamy, fondly called SuRaa, brought about a new
wave in Tamil literature. Despite the fact that he received
no formal education, he was adept in Tamil, Malayalam,
English and Sanskrit. His creative genius manifested it self
through his work, cutting across genres – short stories, novels,
poems, essays, criticism and translation. He wrote poetry
under the pseudonym Pasuviah.
