As a person interested in modern theatre and paintings, I was born in Puducherry on 11th april 1973. My school eduction is nothing but swetting palm memories. I got an opportunity to act in modern theatre plays when I was studying in 9th standard. I toured around many places in India as an actor. After my 12th standard I studied painting for 5 years in Bharathiar Palkalaikoodam, puducherry.
Realising my painting skill and creativity I started participating in many painting exhibitions. During my final year painting, while exhibiting my painting exhibitions in Progressive writers Association, Aliance Française, I used to start the exhibition by staging a play On the first day of every exhibition. By this, with minimum actors I staged “Blue”, “Polythene city”, “Initial Questions and Endless Answers”, “Ticket”, “Birth”, “One in One” like plays.
Few description about the above said plays.
