Known by many names, Brother/Dato/Uncle Jega, Appu, Papa, Jegathesan, Jagadeesan they all refer to the ONE who has had such a profound impact on the lives of many both in Malaysia and around the world, both in public, private and spiritual circles.
This is not meant to be a full biography, but attempts to distill a number of significant events in the life of Dato Jega about whom this blog is about. The purpose of this blog, put together by his children is to try and bring all the writing and videos about Dato Jega that exist across the net into one place.
Growing up with 3 sisters and a brother, the 5 'Pandavas' had a wonderful time together, and this has carried on through the years and the connections between the 5 remain as strong today as it was all those years ago.
His mother, Sellamah was a remarkable woman who brought up the Pandavas almost by herself (with help of close family) as she lost her husband in 1951, when Dato Jega was but 7 years old.

Spurning chances to continue his education in his chosen field of Law overseas to allow him to stay in Bangsar with his mother, Dato Jega went on to do Economics at University Malaya, a move that would see him later shape the economic growth of Malaysia in the 70's and 80's.
Blessed with 2 Shakthi's in his life, Dato Jega first married Shanti, who was recalled to the Lord early, and is now married to Lalitha.
His older children, Jegatheva and Anasuya were born in 1973 and 1974, with Sai Bhanu and Jegan coming in 1979 & 1981
