Musings of MegaloManian The musings of a “wise” old man, on his pet subjects!

Author Name: Subramanyan R | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Biographies & Autobiographies | Other Details

This book is a compilation of emails that my (late) father, Subramanyan. R, periodically sent out to his friends, and family. 
He was a loving grandfather, father, and husband… and passed away, in April 2022, at 91.
He was academically brilliant, Chief Electrical Engineer by Profession, and a passionate teacher, of Mathematics and Physics. 
A vocal Atheist, he was very well-read, and known for his strong opinions, and debates, on Philosophy, Religion, and Politics!
His writings are witty, sarcastic, poetic, sometimes tongue-in-cheek, but always powerful, and passionate. 
Someone once called him “MegaloManian” in jest, a combination of his name (Subramanyan - Manian) and a megalomaniac, given the many strong opinions he had! He liked that name, so this compilation is titled “The Musings of MegaloManian”.
