Ravi Ranganathan,though a great lover of poetry had to take to Banking for a career. He used to write free verses in his younger days. Some of his earlier poems were published in the English monthly magazine The Mirror.
In a sense a late bloomer as he took to serious poetry writing only after his retirement from service in 2012, but the bloom is rich and hue some, with varied colours as his muse frequently takes fancied detours.
All his poems regularly posted in his Timeline and various Poetry pages in the Net are well appreciated. He has won the ‘best romantic poet’ award in the competition conducted by “Wings of Poesy” Poetry Page. He is one of the winners of the poetry competition for the 5th Rabindranath Tagore Award – International conducted by“Poiesisonline.com.” He has contributed to many anthologies of poetry and has been the winner in many competitions. He has to his credit a book with a collection of his own poems entitled Lyrics of Life by Xpress publications.
He lives a contented life at Chennai, happy with himself and his Muse.
