Early life[ edit ] Devan was born in at Thiruvidaimarudur in Thanjavur district, Tamil Nadu , India, where he did his schooling. He came to Kumbakonam Government College to complete his B. He worked as a school teacher for a year, before joining the popular Tamil weekly magazine, Ananda Vikatan in During this time, he wrote about 20 serials, more than stories, articles and travelogues.
A common feature in all his works was his gentle sense of humour. He was a very popular writer and stories abound of how, when a new issue of Ananda Vikatan came out, everyone in the family would fight to get hold of the copy first. Devan worked under famous writers like Kalki Krishnamurthy and S.
It was his wish that his stories get published as books, but sadly this did not happen in his lifetime, due to the nature of his contract with Vikatan. Devan was the editor of Ananda Vikatan until his death in In his short life, he experimented with different types of writing — travelogues, detective novels, articles, short stories, travelogues, current affairs. He himself wrote most of the dialogues for the plays. More recently, some of his works like Thuppariyum Sambu, Sriman Sudharsanam and Mister Vedhantham were made into television serials also.
Only one of his novels, gOmathiyin kAdhalan, was made into a movie, starring T. Ramachandran and Savithri. His writings are copyright of the Devan Endowments.
One of his novels, Justice Jagannathan, has been translated into English.
