The poor farmer the hero of this story gets negligible salary, actually salary not in terms of money but rice.He gets very little rice for his works his friends and ancestors got the same rewards but none of them complained. None of them had education and they kept mum regardless the injustice and starvation they were suffering . It was a clear cut cross section of the kerala society at that time.
At that time some campaigning was going against this feudal system . The hero happened to know about what was happening around him and began to break the rules that chained the ordinary people into starvation. Everybody around him discouraged him to get out of the revolution, but he was determined. Meanwhile his marriage was done and he loved her wife so much they had a son also. I cant remember their names, they had to face lots of adverse situations like starvation and disapproval from the society and they were isolated from the society . Yet our hero stood in his decision firmly and was ready to give his life for this revolution.He had to leave his little child and wife and was even imprisoned. During this time the guardian for wife and the child was his friend and he had a crush on her earlier and still loves her. But he did his duty as a brother by protecting them sleeping outside the hut even in the coldest nights.
The novel ends when our hero comes back from the prison and the revolution becomes a success. Anyway it was a great story. But I dont recommend you it to read. (less)

In Indian history, between the days of Independence and the era of globalisation, lies a period of socialism. From the early days, Kerala was a leader in this societal transformation. The political developments in this small state then was of concern even to the mighty Soviets. Randidangayi shows us a glimpse of the land and its cultural fabric through the eyes of a rebel and his love.

This an all time classic. It takes more than some decent story telling skill to make me, a representative of the

Imagine this, a girl in her 20s with her smart phone safely placed under pillow , and a woman waiting for her beloved to return in her shabby house - what could connect them? The answer is this book .
This is what Thakazhi has managed to accomplish 2 decades from the book being published.
The story told through the lives of Koran and Chirutha , among many other characters, is one which expands beyond this couple; It is in fact the history of a people- parayan / pulayan.The oppression they've had t

A nice and touching novel. It will definitely put you in the period where people used to live like animal due to the cast separation. Characters are molded near to real life.
Purity of language is another big aspect. As said in the prologue this novel will stay forever.
