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. The complete list of my blogs can be accessed by clicking on the link: My blog of blogs!.
