All it takes is a casual comment by a friend for me to turn nerdy. Houston, I have a problem! At dinner table conversations well, other than when I dine alone, that is! I often find myself consciously staying away from a nerdy seriousness.

Kannadasan's autobiography deals extensively with his political activities and there is also a biography written by his close associate, relative and friend, Thiru Muthiah.
