Siblings - the Achievers, not the Inheritors



The Varadarajan brothers – Siddharth & Tunku

Both are prolific and fearless - yet different. Siddharth's writings are serious and aimed at real issues. Tunku's well read columns have seldom spared the U.S. media - be it Ashley Banfield, Christian Amanpour or any other unsuspecting individual. Both turned to journalism after a successful academic carrer.
