Number 503, Tivoli Gardens, Pedder Road. J walks in, even as Krishnan welcomes him in, just like one would a long lost friend. Krishnan asks J, ‘How’s your sister?’ and insists he has whisky. J refuses and opts for coffee and a song envelopes the room, Walk, Don’t Run. Krishnan has nowhere to run, for J loops his throat with a nylon rope, kills him and walks out coolly…. The police finds a photograph in the dead man’s flat, under which it says: ‘To the one and only Krishnan. With lots of love, Harini.’

A riveting story from one of the greatest Tamil writers, Sujatha….

Sujatha (1935–2008) was one of the most popular authors in Tamil literature and his literary career spanned more than four decades. Widely-read and knowledgeable, his versatility and exhaustive range were his unique selling points.

Writing in simple and lucid Tamil, Sujatha made a tremendous impact with his contemporary and racy writing, and his radical and original ideas. His experiments with different genres, and the dramatic narration of ordinary, everyday events won him his audience and many accolades. His works stood out at a time when Tamil writing was dominated by social and family dramas and historical novels. His identification with the masses, and his depiction of their way of talking, behaviour, mindset, dialect and slang, helped make him popular across multiple demographic segments.
