“The author taught and wrote Botany for over four decades in colleges and other institutions at Chennai and across India. But as often happens in a teacher’s life, he developed interest in other areas too. Fiction, English and Telugu, especially Shakespeare and philosophical enquiry, Hindu and Western, interested him most.
But somehow, he had only skimmed in the superficialities, not daring to explore the depths. And here is a collection of essays, written through sixty years and more, reflecting the impact of these explorations on his mind; he calls the collections ‘A mosaic of Human Thought’. Now 89, he lives at G2, Jains Akanksha, 8, Rathinammal st., Kodambakkam, Chennai – 24. He can be reached on 044-24726617. “
