Apart from the above, Kavyakanta Ganapati Sastri had also commenced Bhagavan Ramana's biography and written three chapters.

Uma Saharam, the first original was lost due to some mishap and Kavya Kanta Ganapati had written the entire epic again out of his memory and
made corrections/revisions eight times, before final submission to Bhagavan Ramana in later years.  The last 300 verses were not touched since these were inspired by Bhagavan Ramana.
