About him Crazy Mohan :
“He is one of the most multi-faceted writers in Tamil. His writing was terrific, consistent and extremely informative. He could write just about anything with amazing ease. Sujatha was certainly a genius.”

Kamalahasan :
“He didn’t think writing as his profession. He loved it. He never felt proud of his writings. He was a down-to-earth humble person. Because of him my reading interest improved a lot”.

Personal website
His comment about his writing “I have never obtained the happiness & satisfaction again which I felt when my first short story Sivaji was published. If someone could search and give me a copy of the story, I might give them a part of my property”.
Tips for upcoming writers Read a lot: Read not only in the language you want to write but also in other languages. Put your perspective on what you read.

Put your thoughts down: Don’t wait for the entire story to shape up in your mind. Put down things as you come across and then organize.

Write what you know: Develop story lines based on what you know and stretch a little through research.
