He joins Ara on this week’s episode of The Tamil Creator to discuss his upcoming book, the importance of hard work and (calculated) risk-taking, people’s inability to amicably disagree in today’s social media era, climbing Machu Picchu and much more.

"The Tamil Creator" is a podcast started by me (Ara Ehamparam). As someone who is extremely inquisitive by nature, I created the podcast to chat with, spotlight, and learn about brilliance among creators in the Tamil community - and among creators in general from all over the world.
