About the Author:

V.S. Kalyanraman is a mathematician and amateur astronomer by training, a bureaucrat by profession and a student of astrology by passion, the author had his traditional training in astrology in his teens, under a couple of doyens of Gurus of yesteryears, with a vow not to turn a professional. Commencing his career as a teacher in Kerala completed it as a Senior Class I officer of the Government of India. After a stint of story writing in Tamil in the fifties, turned to serious study of Saiva Siddhanta, Philosophy, Psychology, Vedic Mathematics, Bharateeya Ganitha Sastra, Jyothisha (astronomy), the various astrological systems, Vastu Sastra, Vedic Numerology and allied disciplines, under various masters of repute. As a freelancer, though was contributing on varied topics, occasionally to various magazines in English, Tamil and Malayalam, mostly under disguise, for decades and has received many awards and accolades, would prefer to remain, anonymous and a student, till his last breath.
