Aadhavan was a young turk among a brood of neo-realist novelists that emerged in the late 1960s in Tamil fiction. His work in little magazines and his day job in the capital city of New Delhi brought him into contact with some of the avant garde writers of the period - award winning authors like Indira Parthasarathy and Ashokamitran among them. He was unafraid to wander into hitherto forbidden areas and projected Indians more nuanced and credible than the prevalent stereotypes. A Sahitya Akademi Award winner, he brought a refreshingly new style to Tamil fiction.
