സഥലതതെ പരധാന ദിവയൻ - വൈകകം മുഹമമദ ബഷീർ (വൈ.മു.ബ)// Sthalathe Pradhana Divyan by Vaikkom Muhammad Basheer ( Wikipedia has translated the title as "The Principal Divine of the Place" but honestly it just reads so weird and so plastic)

Rating: .5/5

Reading Basheer has always been a pleasure. I have always been intimidated by Malayalam literature, and I tend to tiptoe around it. But Basheer? He just asks me to chill and lets me in on all his inside jokes about the average egotistic Mallu (Malayalee)

The humble historian here narrates absurdities happening in a small village which as per the villagers is center of this 'Pappadom' shaped Flat Earth.

ബഷീർ സാഹിതയതതെ സംസാരസാഹിതയം എനന വിളികകുനനതാണ ഉചിതം. നാടടിനുപുറതതെ നിഷകളങകതയെയും സംസാരതതെയും ഒരു നോവലാകകി മാററിയിരികകുനനു.
ഒരു ചെറുപുഞചിരിയോടെ അലലാതെ ഇത വായികകാൻ കഴിയിലല
