Ra.Ki.Rangarajan Ra. Ki. Rangarajan, who was with Tamil magazine Kumudam for forty years, left a mark on almost every genre of Tamil literature. He even wrote on the occult. He was perhaps the author with the most pseudonyms—as many as ten! He also tried his hand at translations, capturing the flavour of Sidney Sheldon and Jeffrey Archer for the Tamil reading public. His translation of Henri Charriere’s Papillon was serialised in Kumudam and was a huge hit. Ra. Ki’s short stories with a surprise twist in the end were compiled under the title Twist Kadaigal, and were inspired by Jeffrey Archer’s A Twist in the Tale. Ra. Ki.’s magnum opus was Naan Krishnadevarayan.
