A surgeon with the unique experience of working in six countries over four continents, Dr Anantha Ramanathanhas had the rare opportunity of interacting with people from over a hundred countries. This exposure to different cultures is reflected in his writings. He writes under the penname Ezhuth Aani which means a pen. A deep yearning for social justice, inclusiveness and equality as well as celebration of the written word are the guiding principles in Ezhuth's creations.
A pen is mightier than a scalpel. A person who wields a knife can influence only one life at a time. A quill can touch many.
