A postgraduate in English, A. Thiagarajan taught in colleges in India and retired recently from a bank. He has been writing in English and Tamil since college days, though quite a lot of them remained on the paper he wrote on (that is, when not consigned by him to the waste paper basket). Nuances of relationship between individuals, mental pain and cruelty we inflict on each other and ourselves are his obsession. Interests include finance, Sri Aurobindo, and mythology. He lives in Mumbai with his wife Rama. His son Ganesh works in the United States.
