Roof maker and koothu artist, ganesan alternates between these two identities. Initiated and trained by his dad into koothu, the initial practices in acts such as soorasamharam, bull fight( madupidi chandai), stepmother squabbles( matrandhai kodumai) etc slowly graduated and progressed to transforming musical plays such as dhamayanti kalyanam, arichandra mayana kandam, sathiyavan, savithri into complex koothu acts.
His experiments continue till date. His concern that artists should have no financial and mental troubles has been important in keeping his group members consistently creative and happy. He also takes a keen interest in stage decoration and insists that koothu should synchronise well with its music which he regards as its lifeline.
