“From Sumathy to Thamizhachi”
“It was when her father, respected Mr Thangapandian, passed away that Thamizhachi found her calling as a writer. The words healed her and after that there was no looking back for her. Her main strength lies in transporting the reader to the nativity that she grew up in; making the reader an audience of her life as she as captures the essence of every breath.
She was given the name Thamizhachi by Kalaingar himself and Thamizhachi she has remained after that.”
