| A postgraduate in English, A. Thiagarajan taught in colleges in India before joining the finance sector. Currently employed in a multinational bank as a deputy chief operating officer, he has been writing in English and Tamil since his 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 relationships between individuals, mental pain and cruelty others inflict on each other and within themselves are his obsessions. Interests include finance, Sri Aurobindo, and mythology.
He lives in Mumbai with his wife Rama and his 21-year-old son, Ganesh studies in the U.S.
