Hope you are doing fine. In a previous post, I had written about joining a new job on January 25th. Right now, I have been actively working on my new job and it has been nearly a couple of months now.
I have moved to a new city because of my current job and got a nice spacious room in a mansion. I have also got some of my old books which were stuck in a different place. I had to spend a lot to pay the advance for the mansion and for moving my stuff.
After moving here, I have started making live videos on Youtube. The room has a good lighting and silent environment. That makes it easy for me to make videos, write poetry and a lot of new content.
There is another happy news. I have published my Tamil poetry book, under the title ‘மலையோரக் கவிதைகள் – Malayorak Kavithaigal‘ (Paperback):
Publishing my Tamil poems as a book has been a dream for me ever since I was a school student. The dream has finally come true. This book doesnt have all the poems I have written; but it has a lot of my recent poems; some of them are from the last one year and a few of them are from the years 2018, 2019 and 2020, when I was very active in my blog.
The book is listed in Amazon India, Notion Press and Flipkart. If you know Tamil, you can support me by buying the book. It costs Rs.137. Click on one of the links given above in this paragraph to buy the book.
I have ordered some author copies and it is expected to arrive today. I am quite excited about it.
Though I have got a good job which can give more financial stability, I had to spend a lot of money over the last few months for getting everything moved, to order author copies, to take care of some health issues and more. I also need financial help to launch new projects, as I feel like I am back on track to produce a lot of new content.

Please remember, your help makes a lot of difference.. It gives me much more strength to continue with my mission. In fact, publishing my Tamil poetry has given me another new beginning. I have reached another new mile stone. And it was possible by people who supported me by offering financial help; In fact, there was a time last year when I was pretty much homeless and my survival was threatened! Without the help done by many of you, It wouldn’t have been possible to get things resolved and restore a stable daily life that I used to have.
I extend my gratitude to people who have helped me and I am looking forward to receive some help now to manage my expenses this month. Thank you for reading.
