Who is C. N. Sreekantan Nair?

C. N. Sreekantan Nair was a Malayalam playwright. He is probably best known for his Ramayana trilogy - Kanchana Sita, Saketham and Lankalakshmi - based on the epic Ramayana. Poet and scholar Ayyappa Panicker had observed that Lankalakshmi brought out the playwright in Sreekantan Nair, while Saketham and Kanchana Sita highlighted the poet and the philosopher in the playwright. He received the Kendra Sahitya Academy Award in 1962 for Kanchana Sita. It was later adapted into a film with same name by G. Aravindan. His another major work was Nashtakkachavadam which won the M. P. Paul prize. He has also written some short stories.
