One can't just get enough of the works of the Sultan of Bepur. His unparalleled way of story telling shows us only one thing. Only one who has truly experienced life can laugh at it. His ability to struck chords with the readers while saying the most simplest stories is what makes him so great. Same is the case with Premalekhanam. One has to read it to experience it. ...more

The conversation between Kesavan Nair and Saramma is brilliant. While Kesavan is head over heels in love with Saramma, Saramma pretends as if she is least interested in him. The theme of unrequited love is old but Basheer's prose makes the reader adore Kesavan Nair, sympathize with Saramma and subtly introduces a society which breaks apart human relations with its 'religion'. ...more

The premise of the story is simple but it is stellar in its telling. A young man is trying to impress upon a sarcastic young woman, his love for her. In doing so she offers her a job--to love him everyday--for a salary of Rs 20. Their banter is hilarious and adorable in its naivete. This book remains relevant to this day because it shows us once again that love is beyond logic.

And it is the time of rereading of Basheer. Read at a very young age can't say I remember any of his stories now. So thot it is high time I start the rereading as early as possible. One down.... Kesavan Nair and Saramma's story a really happy ending... It is magic that he sews in to this story with just two characters.... ...more

Another good short story from Basheer. Sarcastic commentaries disguised in a funny love story.Problems of the ordinary people conveyed beautifully ,cruel stepmother, uncaring and helpless father, unfair dowry system ,Inter-caste marriage problems etc.

“പ്രിയപ്പെട്ട സാറാമ്മേ,
