I was Born in Mallavi, a small town in the Northern "Ceylon", having
Tamil as mother tongue, moved to the capital Colombo in 1991; then to an
Occupied Land Called "Canada"
in 1995; living in Diaspora ever since. With those place changes, there
is still (and I think always) a small town gurl within me, who doesn't
fit in the big city images of all sort.
I am a fellow writer in
Tamil language and had been an editor, as well as co-authored poetry
book, an anthology, and have written in small literary magazines such as
uyirnilal, kaalam, among the others. Currently I am contributing monthly to 'thaiveedu' Tamil news monthly published from Toronto, Canada.
My interests are
more in creating forums or alternative spaces for the youth and children
from immigrant/ghetto families. Along with work and 'alternative'
education, slowly my journey is going towards that vision.
