About the author (2007)

Born at Alatur as the eldest son of Shri Malamal Velayudhan Malamal Nair, a leading Advocate of Palghat and Kaltusseri Kizhakke Veettil Ammini Amma, Kunhi Krishnan (known as K.K. Nair) had his education at Government Victoria College, Palghat, and at Annamalai University, Chidambaram.  He secured first class in M.A. with History, Politics and Economics as subjects.  He was awarded the Shri Neelakanta Shastri Prize for proficiency in Indian History and the C.R. Reddy Prize for securing the first rank.

Mr. Nair started his Journalistic career with the Indian Express, Madurai.  Soon, he joined The Times of India, Bombay, where he stayed on for about 20 years.  He was a regular contributor to Blitz and Current Weeklies, specializing in investigative stories.  He left the Times in 1978 to join as Editor, Arab News, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

In 1987, he came under the spell of the well-known Saint Mata Amritanadamayi, which gave a new direction and a new meaning to his life.  Though writing stories began as a leisure time activity, it took a serious turn over the years.  With the grace of the Divine Mother, he patiently completed the work in five years.  His wish was to write specially selected stories with morals for the young.  Mr. K.K. Nair passed away on March 21st, 2004 in Mumbai, INDIA.
