I first met Muthu in Bangalore. He was visiting with his mother, and stayed with us. I was 14 years old, and he had just come down from New York where he was studying. I met him again years later, after he had relocated to Chennai, with Valli. I will always cherish our evening ‘Mafia’ meetings with friends, on the verandah of the Madras Club. As I will our Madras Club Library sub-committee meetings, and, most recently, our Third Sunday ‘Books for Breakfast’ get-togethers, also at the Madras Club. I was lucky to have spent precious prime time with Muthu just before he passed away. I was privileged to know him and will sorely miss this really good friend.
