About Me

I am R. Venketesh.

I write  Tamil Historical novels under a pseudonym Anusha Venkatesh.

and before you ask, Anusha is not my wife.

Its named after a Star.

once again not my star.

its a big story why I chose to write my novels  under that name.

My first Tamil Novel was Kaviri mainthan- a sequel to Kalki’s Ponniyin selvan. my second novel was Thillaiyil Oru Kollaikaran.

This Year I chose not to write novels so i could spend time with my son who had his public exam.

My third and fourth novels will be released in 2009. they are titled ‘Kanchi’ and ‘Madurai’

you will read their prolouges soon on this blog.

My other interests are Shaivism, Environment, vastu sastra( i have written 14 books on it and allied subjects) and travelling.

    let me introduce myself as a wordpress blog writer
    who is writing in the name of kavirimainthan (!)
    and my blog’s address is –


    I have not published my photograph anywhere so far.
    Some blog friends , ;who have seen your photo just
    took it that it is me and also wrote to me about it.

    Then I searched and found you in the web.
    NICE !

    Anyway – it is nice that I had your introduction this way.
    I love writer Kalki and i enjoy his historicals.

    I am happy that you are also an admirer of Kalki.
