Kaviarasan, who simply goes by ‘Kavi’ in the faculty, welcomes all those around him with a beaming million-dollar smile. He grew up in the serene town of Taiping and was raised in a humble family of five, consisting of his parents, sister, and grandmother. As the first in his family to graduate from tertiary education — and the first lawyer at that — Kavi is determined to realise the hopes and dreams of his loved ones.
With a deep affinity for reading, Kavi finds himself entranced with the world of literature, be it original Tamil works or English-translated pieces. Currently, his attention is divided between the works of a Lebanese-American writer, Khalil Gibran, as well as pieces related to Sufism. Beyond a mere consumer of literature and writing, Kavi is also a literary merchant of sorts, trading his ideas through his blog: ‘Caffeine Addict: A Modern Dilenttate’. This platform is where Kavi’s streams of thoughts — usually a fun mixture of Tamil literature and constitutional matters — converge.
