Book Description
About the Original Author – KALKI

Ramaswamy Aiyer Krishnamurthy (9 September 1899 - 5 December 1954), better known by his pen name Kalki, was a Tamil writer, journalist, poet, critic and Indian independence activist.

He derived his pen name from his wife's name Kalyani and his name Krishnamurthy in Tamil to form Kalki.

His writings include over 120 short stories, 10 novelettes, 5 novels, 3 historical romances, editorial and political writings and hundreds of film and music reviews. (Courtesy: Wikipedia).

Kalki is particularly known for his two great works ? Sivakamiyin Sabatham and Ponniyin Selvan. The latter was serialised in the Tamil weekly Kalki during the period 1951 to 1954. That was the last work written by him.

Ponniyin Selvan, written in five volumes, narrates the story of Arulmozhivarman (later crowned as Rajaraja Chozhan). one of the kings of the Chozha Dynasty during the 10th and 11th centuries. The cast includes several other characters, some of them real, some imaginary but none boring. The author’s influence on his readers is borne by the fact that many children born during that time (and even much later) were named after the characters of this story. Ask someone whose name is Nandini or Kunthavai; her father would be a fan of Kalki and would have read Ponniyin Selvan at least half-a-dozen times.

Kalki's another novel Alai Osai, set at the time of the Indian independence Struggle, got him the Sahithya Academy Award posthumously in 1956.
