Kesav, who is a linguist, is proficient in five languages and has been speaking Tamil all his life. He has studied Asian and European languages and is a specialist in three of those languages. He observed various patterns between spoken and standardized Tamil. Thus, eventually, he came up with the idea of creating a book without making the student back off due to having to learn a language which has a standardized and a spoken version. Having made interesting observations on how different languages work in the expression of ideas, the author has put all his observations to use in the making of this book. He is also keen on learning ancient languages and travels to places that have historical and archeological value.
