இநத புதினம ஒரு மனசகடசியின குரல. ஒவவொரு நலலவனுககுலேயும ஒரு கேடட,அருவருபபு தகக குணமும. ஒவவொரு கேடடவனுககுளையும ஒரு நலல குணாதிசயம, பணபும இருககு எனறு எடுததுககடடும நவல இது.

Great book.

The epilogue of this book was shattering, of course, but right from the start, this was a literary phenomenon Tamils should be proud about. Jayakanthan has expressed his gall in questioning the principles men have constructed around them in the name of the society and how lives of people yearning for independence from those trifles dissolve into oblivion. Forty years have passed since this book was written but people have not changed much yet from the characters JK envisioned in this

Deserves so MUCH more than random impressions hastily jotted down, but for now, this will have to do:

Jayakanthan, yet again, questioning societal norms - Way before its time - A supremely disturbing conclusion, will haunt me for quite some time - Characters etched out with all their flaws: the mother, brother, mama.. grey, everywhere - the theme of self-destruction running through the story: overt, in Prabhu's case, too deeply ingrained, in Ganga's case

More, hopefully later, preferably after a s

Timeless classic even after 45 years since it was first published. I don't know when was the last time I cried but late last night I could see tears rolling down. This novel opens on the mind set of a frustrated woman living in a male chauvinistic society and starts with a repugnance to a male character in the plot and slowly develops into a classic 20th century acceptable culture where you start liking that same male character too.

Brilliance, of a novel lies in the attachment that it fetches -

To show Dharma would succeed we need Adharma. To show God we need to say about Satan. To show discipline we need to show indecency and its after effects. It's like both sides of a coin. Ganga is like that. She is an individual representation for the above.

This is the story about a cursed Aatma.
