"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."

- Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

K.Subramanian
known as kA.cu.

[From a posting in newsgroups: soc.culture.tamil on 26 July 1994
by C.R.Selvakumar - selvakum@sun14.vlsi.uwaterloo.ca]

I was reading a small book by irA. iLanGkumaran on 'thamizhk kA.cu. vin thamizhar samayam - Or Ayvu'. The book has 117 pages and was published in 1986 by 'thamizhk kA.cu. ninaivu ilakkiyak kuzhu', Kuzhiththalai, Thiruchchi. I consider iLanGkumaran as one of the best Tamil writers in terms of style.

I found on pages 6 and 7 a list of 52 works of Mr. Kanthimathinathan Subramanian. Mr. Subramanian was popularly known as kA.cu in Tamil Literary circles. Although I had heard about kA.cu, I've only read small parts of one of his books on civaNYaana bOtham. I realize how much I must be missing ! I'm posting this list in the hope some of you might not be aware of this set of books just as I was until recently. Mr. K. Subramanian was born in 1889 and he was a lawyer by profession; Tamil writer by fame. List of kA.cu's works.
