Born into a Tamil family, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, I can speak in three languages, but I can only read and write in two – unfortunately Tamil is not one of them.
Since both my parents are Tamil-literate so the Tamil Dailies were common at home. But I had no clue that my mom was a big fan of the notorious Tamil pulp fictions too! I remember flipping through old magazines, and staring at the black and white sketches of mustachioed man and his busty damsel in pointed blouse underneath sheer sari.
