T. Janakiraman 1921-1982 is one of the famous Tamil writers who portrayed the intricacies of the workings of the human mind. Janakiraman began writing short stories with a sensitive touch and later specialized in writing novels. The smell of the soil, the taste of its food, the music of the dialect and its peculiar cultural eliticism all are attractively displayed in Janakiraman’s writings. His published works include eight novels, two nove-letters, six collections of short stories, three full length plays and three travelogues. Sakthi Vaithiyam is a collection of short stories which won him the prestigious Sahitya Akademi Award in 1979. The Corpus of Janakiraman’s works includes Mohamul, Marappasu, Amma Vanthal, etc.
