Srinivasa Iyer Ramaswamy called as Cho Ramaswamy (Tamil: சோ ராமசுவாமி) is a comedian, editor, playwright and lawyer in Tamil Nadu.[1] He is the founder and editor of the Tamil magazine, Thuglak. His popularity in the Tamil Nadu literary circles is mainly due to his impartial assessment of political issues, and the audacity with which he publishes his viewpoints. Politicians such as J. B. Kripalani, Charan Singh, Kamaraj, Morarji Desai, Chandra Shekhar, G. K. Moopanar, M. G. Ramachandran, Jayalalithaa, Ramakrishna Hegde, N. T. Rama Rao, Atal Bihari Vajpayee, L. K. Advani, and Narendra Modi have been the target of his editorial attacks.

In the Rajya Sabha 12 MPs are nominated by the President of India from amongst persons who have special knowledge or practical experience in the fields of literature, science, art or social service.

Trivia[edit]

  • Following Sanjay Gandhi's death, Cho released stamps in memory of a man called Saxena, who he claimed had also died in the air crash. The postal departments funnily failed to realise that these stamps were not official and mistakenly approved them.[3]
  • Cho played the role of a bike mechanic in a play "Petral dhaan Pillaya" written by Pattu of the United Amateur Artistes (UAA), which became a huge success. When the play was later adapted into a film by director A. Bhimsingh, Sivaji Ganesan persuaded Cho to play the same role in the film too, leading to Cho's entry into the film world.[3]
