Born in Tirunelveli (Tamil Nadu) on 14th April 1934
to Late Aiyahsastri and Late Muthulakshmi.
Lost mother while one year eight months old.
A neighbour was responsible for bringing me up
Father Aiyahsastri was an upright, honest and virtuous
man. Although he passed Law, he did not relish
practicing which involved improbity at times.
He was selected as a Bank Agent despite possessing no
knowledge in banking. The selection was purely on
the basis of his simplicity and sense of honesty.
The new job took the family to Tuticorin. Late Aiyahsastri
married again to Easwaram.
I have two elder brothers and an elder sister, besides
three younger brothers. All are married and well-settled.
The names are (1) Mr.T.A.Ramiah (who was with the Govt.
of India, presently retired and settled in Delhi), (2)
T.A.Venkatakrishnan (who was with G.E.C., Calcutta,
now retired and settled in Calcutta), (3) T.A.Muthuswamy
(who was with Sundaram Motors, Madurai, now retired and
settled in Madras), (4) T.A.Srinivasan (who was with
H.E.C., now retired, doing business, and settled in Madras,
(5) T.A.Venkateswaran, presently working in Allahabad
Bank and posted in Bombay. Sister Lalitha is married to
Sri A.Lakshminarayanan (of Central Bank of India), who
is now retired and settled in Kallidaikurichi in Tamil
I came to settle in Calcutta in 1952 and started working
in East Asiatic Co. almost from the time of arrival.
In 1956, I joined Air-India, international airline of
India, as a Stenographer. Got married in 1961 but
the marriage did not last. Married again to a bengali
girl, Debjani, after long years of acquaintance in 1969.
Have a daughter, Tarita, who was born on 20th July 1971.
She is a lady now and is working in B.M.Birla Heart
Research Centre. She still remains unmarried.
Excepting for 4 years' posting at Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
from 1981 to 84, I spent my professional life mostly in
Calcutta. After 36 years of service, I superannuated
on 31st July 1992.
Presently, I am working in a small business establishment
as Partner with my brother. We supply spares for online
condensor cleaning, and import these spares from Germany.
I believe in fair and honest dealings with any one
coming across in life. I try to make any one coming into
contact happy in my own humble way. I pray for other
peoples and my ambition is for a tension-free, peaceful
and happy world.
