Tamil writer Sujatha no more!

Posted by Karthik

Shocking, to say the least. He was (is?) one of the most influential writers for me personally, across languages. He was solely responsible for me to start thinking in Tamil – though it is getting increasingly difficult. His Tamil usage is inimitable and some of his short stories are way way way ahead of time. For instance, one of his short stories had an accident narrated from 3 different view points – all three had a person directly involved in the accident. Sounds familiar? Yes, Amores Perros! The only hitch – Sujatha wrote his short story in the 70s!

I can easily say that Sujatha, along with Douglas Adams, are my two favorite writers. Ever.

Sujatha…you’ll be missed.
