A.V. Rajaganeshamurthy

"It is amazing how the ancient Tamil poets could express the deepest truths in just a few words. For example, 'Yaadum Oore Yaavarum Kelir,' 'Anbe sivam,' or 'Aram seyya virumbu' capture very essential maxims in an easy-to-remember manner. Today's generation can benefit from the insights of Thiruvalluvar, such as in, 'En enba enai ezhuthu enba ivvirandum kan enba vaazhum uyirkku' (Kural 392), which means, 'Science and literature are the two eyes of any civilisation.'"

A striking memory of those days: Running in the pre-dawn hours in the ground opposite to the hostels, in the winter, with shorts and t-shirt.
