Hello and welcome to my site!
I was born to Dr. K. N. Raman and Mrs. Meenal Raman as the second of their five children.
I achieved proficiency in Bharatha Natyam and Carnatic music during my school days. I graduated with Distinction from Madras University in 1966, with Physics as my Major subject. I won the National Merit Scholarship for higher studies.
I have diplomas in Carnatic Music, Journalism, Hindi and Fine arts. I have published 72 articles in The Young World of The Hindu between 1993 and 2008.
I thank Wikipedia which has been a vast source of information required by me. I thank 1000s of Google images which made the illustrations of my blogs possible.
I thank my sons Shankar and Raman, who are the pillars of my strength and encourage me in all my endeavors.
I thank my creative and industrious daughter in law Mrs. Rupa Raman for designing, creating, posting and illustrating all my blogs.
