Originally known as ‘S Rangarajan‘, this multi-faceted, eminent personality is well known in the fields of science, literature etc.,  He has never failed to leave his imprints in his works irrespective of the field.  He has got an excellent place in the tamil cinema industry as well in the form of script writer.. very sweet and marking dialogues can definitely make him remembered. Recently he wrote scripts for ‘Sivaji – The Boss’.

 i really could not believe the news when i just saw my colleague was reading the news in hindu.com website today..

“Writer sujatha has passed away yesterday (wednesday) at his age of 72” 

it took me a minute to realize.. but what to do? reality! hm.. the human life has to come to an end..  my deep condolences to his family members and prayers for his soul to rest in peace.

 I am one among the huge fans he had earned. I am sure his soul will rest in peace definitely as he would have done all his duties perfectly. he was the classmate of our ex President APJ Abdul kalaam.

 there were many excellent stories, short stories, articles written  by him..  he became famous through the tamil weekly magazine ‘Ananda Vikatan’ and his recent contribution to the article ‘Kattradhum Pettradhum’ was a feather to the crown. They were actually collected and released as a series of 3 books. His ‘one minute stories’ – in the name of  ‘si si kathaigal’ were also very remarkable.

whenever i see him in the photographs, i always spend sometime in listening to his eyes.. which has got a real magic power which i feel so great when experiencing..

You will definitely be remembered for your contributions and footprints you have left with us….

    Although, i havent read much of his writings, i used to read his kattrathum Petrathum in vikatan.. and then i read his famous book “Thalaimai Seyalakam” .. he is famous for his EVM, which would be ever remembered as long as democracy is alive..

    This news is not a surprise to me, as long back, i read him writing about his own health.. We dont have yet to pass on the brains/memories to others, otherwise, his knowledge would be simply copy pasted 🙂

    Yes, thats true. I have also heard of ‘thalaimai seyalakam’. but have not read it yet. You are very correct about EVM.

    See, I have never had the opportunity to read Tamil works much! But my friends have told me about Sujatha’s works! I am sure he’d be greatly missed. Great minds usually are.

    Hi Rags,

    am too lazy to read non subject books, so am less aware abt sujatha as a writer. Am a big fan of SUJATHA s dialog writings in movies.

    “Anju paisa thirudina thappa??” & “thappu enna baniyan size ah? small , large nu solla, vilaivugalai paarunga ellaamey Extra Large thaan” comes to my mind both made a big imapact to aid the message of the movie.. great writing that from the legend..

    Got an interesting info abt sujatha.. just thought of sharing with u..

    In the movie ROJA(Tamil-1991) the Flag burning scene.. Considered to be the best scene that portrays the patriotism in indian cinema. this idea Idea was infact given by Sujatha during the discussion, infact he narrated the entire scene to manirathnam to convince him the inportance of the scene in that movie.. Note: ROJA got national award in 1991.
