About me

Visalakshi Ramani

Hello and welcome to my site in English consisting of a collection of 261 articles under 18 different subheadings!

I was born to Dr. K. N. Raman and Mrs. Meenal Raman as the second of their five children.

I achieved proficiency in Bharatha Natyam and Carnatic music during my school days. I graduated with Distinction from Madras University in 1966, with Physics as my Major subject. I won the National Merit Scholarship for higher studies.

I had my own School Sangeetha Naatyaalayaa in B.H.P.V Township, Visakhapatnam (A.P) between 1975 and 1994 and trained hundreds of children. My husband opted for Voluntary Retirement in 1994 and we have settled down in Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu-India) since then.

I have diplomas in Carnatic Music, Journalism, Hindi and Fine arts. I have published 72 articles in The Young World of The Hindu between 1993 and 2008.

  1. Dear Madam,

    I am RVR. I along with some of my friends have left tamilbrahmins.com website as it permits people with all sorts of back ground. Keeping the name `tamil’ and `brahmins’ in its title, it permits people who are neither `Tamil’ nor a `Brahmin’.

    We have started our the above website about a month back and are continuing our trust activities. We conducted free Vivaha Sangamams for brahmins in Chennai and Bangalore during this month.

    I kindly request you to come to our new website `braminsworld.com’ along with you younger sister and contribute effectively. (Please note that the word `h’ is missing in the above website address from the word brahmin)

    We don’t permit anti-brahmin sentiments in our forum while allowing discussions on reforms within the brahmin community.

    Thanks and regards,


    • Dear Mr. R.V.R,

      I noticed that some of the regular contributors were missing from the Forum. But I did not know the other developments.

      I am neck deep in the Forum and will have to complete the threads I have started.

      Personally I feel that we should be ready to take a few criticisms and face the ruffles now and then.

      But ideas differ from person to person. Now the Forum has become a peaceful place since the hurting edge has been

      been effectively removed from the nibs of the pens people use.

      I will join your website also as soon as the pressure of preparing twelve posts everyday is relaxed a little.

      with warm regards to you and best wishes to your new web site,

      yours sincerely,
      Visalakshi Ramani.

    O3 🙂
