P.R.Ramachander



“Papanasam Sivan was born in 1890 in Polagam near Thanjaavoor to Sri Ramamritha Iyer and Yogambal. He was called Ramaiah by people close to him. The Papanasam of Sri Sivan is between Kumbakonam and Thanjavoor, with its own railway station served by passenger trains. That is where his brother stayed and he used to pass much of his time there. From 1898 to 1910 he lived in Thiruvanthapuram. In 1917 he married Lakshmi, daughter of Sri Ayyaaswami Iyer of Nagapattinam. He also translated many Malayalam and Sanskrit works into Tamil. He passed away in 1973 at the age of 83. " .He is supposed to have written 2000  songs out of which majority were   for Tamil films .Experts have identified 400  Krithis   which are Carnatic Music Krithis (Info from http://tamilnation.co/culture/music/papanasa_sivan.htm )
