About the Author

S. Maharajan (1913-1982) born at Trichirapalli, Tamil Nadu was a scholar in Tamil and English. He joined the State judiciary in 1943, after practicing as an advocate for eight years, and was elevated to the High Court of Madras in September 1969. After retirement, he was Chairman of the State Official Languages (Legislative) Commission, of the Expert Committee to promote translation of foreign classics into Tamil and vice-versa. As the Chief of the judicial service in Pondicherry for four years, he was responsible for the introduction of Indian legal system in the erstwhile French courts. Among the 15 books authored by him are translations of Shakespeare's works. Apart from his mastery of Kamba Ramayanam, he had been lecturing on the mysticism of Saint Tirumoolar. He was the president of the Tamil lsai Sangam.

In this monograph he has revealed his intimate knowledge of the subject and his scholarly and critical competence for writing on Tiruvalluvar.
