Full Biography of Actor Solomon Pappaiah
Solomon Pappaiah (born 22 February 1936), a.k.a. Solomon Pappiah and Salomon Pappayah is a popular Tamil language scholar and a television icon in Tamil Nadu, India. He is best known for moderating Tamil debate talk shows, known as \'patti mandrams\', which have been airing on Sun TV for quite a long time. He is credited for taking social themes to the masses and has so far moderated over 5,000 debates programmes across the globe.
Born as the ninth child in a family of 12 to Mr.A.Sundaram and Mrs.S.Pakkiam, Pappaiah had his job cut out as his father was a mill worker and did not have the wherewithal to financially support his studies. With financial help from his friends, he was able to continue his education. His drawing master at American College Higher Secondary School, Arasu, taught him the skills. Professor Jothi Muthu of American College groomed his love for the language.
Pappiah joined Thiagarajar College to pursue Post-Graduation in Tamil and became the first batch of M.A Tamil students. He entered the public stage fray in 1960, when he became a teacher at The American College. Eventually, he created a social awakening in the evolution of patti mandrams. He has also written and directed plays at college.
