Writing is not an easy task and it does not come to everyone. One should have the ability to express what he/she feels.

Sivakumar has yet again proved his ability to write with his work , `Idhu Rajapattai Alla', a widely acknowledged book included in the 91-92 curriculum of Loyola College. Director K. Balachander released his book on Saturday, Jan 01, 2005.


The book fondly recollects the memories of his journey. He gratefully speaks about personalities he had worked with, was close to and who inspired him. The ones who have made him “ what he is today ”.

He has also spoken in detail about the great people in Tamil film industry like S. S. Vasan, A. V. M. Saravanan, A. P. Nagarajan, A. V. M. Rajan, Jaya Shankar, Jayalalithaa among others in the book.

He has devoted 30 pages in his book to his mother. He remembers his mother with great reverence. Having lost his father at a very age, he recollects the difficulties his mother faced to raise her children in that obscure place with no one offering any help. His mom stoically withstood the circumstances and all pressures and even managed to send him to school.

In a way, the sufferings only hardened him and made him wiser to take on challenging situations. " Each time I encounter any difficulty, I am reminded of my mother's will power and commitment and the very thought rejuvenates me and shows me the way to go ahead ".

The book also has more than 50 paintings of SivaKumar.
