Cho Ramaswamy

General Profile of Cho Ramaswamy  -   Drama Artists

Srinivasa Iyer Ramaswamy, also known as Cho Ramaswamy is a comedian, playwright, critic, lawyer and columnist from Tamil Nadu, India. He is editor of the popular Tamil magazine Thuglak. He is also known as Cho.

THE veteran of Tamil theatre if he has ever thought of trying out more contemporary techniques in sets, costume, lighting, acting and dialogue delivery and he will flash back, "Dialogue is our forte. It must reach the audience. Even if it is antiquated, I'd like to retain it. I've never thought of ways to ruin success."

And success is what the lawyer, satirist, actor, playwright, journalist and political analyst Cho Ramaswamy has achieved in Tamil Nadu, and among Tamils everywhere. "What I did on the screen was very different from what I did on stage. I have written many serious plays, and only five or six political satires, but they became so famous that I got labelled as a satirist."

Cho's journal amplifies his voice almost exclusively. At Thuglak's annual live interactive sessions, readers get a chance to question and criticise. "My respect for democracy stops with letting them have their say. The decisions are mine." Legal training enables Cho to cut to the root of any issue, grasp constitutional issues and state his case clearly.

The man who talks too much becomes somewhat introspective in his translations of the Mahabharata and the Ramayana. This interest had been sparked way back when he researched for quotations from the Gita for the play "Sambhavami Yuge Yuge."
