Dear Mr.Giridharan,

Thanks for your gesture in publishing a FULL PAGE article on 'azhagi' in your popular website, in such a nice and sweet manner. 

I should say that your website is just 'overloaded' (with information), just as azhagi is (with features). Its indeed a pleasure to see a site with I find your site very worthy. But, since I have only limited resources (which includes non-availability of 24 hours internet connection in my area and only dial-up - which is very slow and costly), I am unable to be a regular visitor/reader of your site. Thats the plight faced by many in India.

Subject: from era.murukan - on Kundhavai's short story collection

Dear Giridharan,

How are u? I am indeed happy to observe pathivukal is
fast carving a niche for itself in the ezine space.
Kudos to u for all yr efforts in giving it a distinct

I am writing this to strike a slightly discordant note
asynchronous with one of the articles that appeared
in the recent issue of pathivukal - the review of
Kundhavai's short story collection by our
author-friend Karunakaramoorthy of Berlin.

I am really shocked at the tone and tenor of his
artilce - he tends to treat Kundavai as a novice
author and goes on listing the 'shortcomings' in her
writing, only to wind up in a patronizing tone.

P'haps Karuna may not even know Kundavai is a veteran
author or he is just prejudiced against the lady, for
reasons better known to only him!

To be frank with you, my knowledge about Eeelam Tamil
writters, till an year back was limited to ess.po,
ganesalingan, you, yoganathan, karunakaramoorthy,
ramanidharan and devakanthan - those whom I know

After I arrived in the UK, I started regularly
interacting with Thiru.Padmanabha Iyer who introduced
me to the works of a number of other authors -
significant among them being Kundhavai, Ranjakumar and

Just because Kundhavai has written less, her
achievements can not be swept under the carpet and she
be painted in bad light as done by Karuna. If it is
right, then we have to do mete out the same treatment
to  the Thamizhagam authors Sampath, Krishnan Nambi
and G.Naagarajan as well, who have also written very
less; nonetheless they are still considered major
forces in modern Tamil literature by the discerning

I am enclosing my recent article on Kundavai - a
slightly revised one of that I wrote in my Inayam
newsgroup 'Raayar Kaapi Klub' in Oct 2002 as an intro
to Kundhavai's short story collection. I have also
added a postscript - not a rejoinder to Karuna but to
place my artilce in the proper perspective. The file
is in .txt format using TSCII font.

Warm regards,
Halifax, West Yorkshire, UK

I read your short story "Where are you from". It is  really a good story. You could have removed the last line "idhu eppadi irukku".

I came to know this site from Tamil computer . Fine site Kudos The articles of Jeyamohan and Yamuna Rajendran are good. Jeyamohans article on Madhamata saddam is deep and strong.

Dear VNG:

Pathivugal is indeed a desirable e-zine for most of us who long to read about contemporary literary scene in the wide world. Your coverage of the Thamilnadu scene and directions regarding affiliated websites is also welcome. Please keep up your productive endeavour. Personally I am delighted to read and benefit from your presentations in Pathivugal.

Best Wishes.
