We also made it a point to visit the residence of Timeri Murari (b.date 29 July 1941) at 92 Landons Road, Kilpauk, Chennai, 600010. Timeri Murari is an Indian novelist, journalist, playwright and screen writer.

Murari was born and brought up in Chennai and had his school education in Bangalore. The young Murari went to UK to study electronics engineering and later switched to History and Political Science at McGill University at Montreal. Murari married Maureen Hudson, an Australian. After long time the couple returned to Chennai  from New York where they had lived for over ten years after they got married. Personal reasons made them move over to Chennai. Now Muraris settled down in their ancestral home on Landon's Road, Kilpauk.
