అప్పటికే పొద్దు వాటారింది. పెరట్లో ఎండేసిన సరుగుడు పేళ్లు ఓమూల పొందికగా పేర్చి తడవకుండా తాటాకులు కప్పి, మిగిలిన చితుకులు ఏరుతూ వంగి లేచి ఆయాసపడుతోంది బుచ్చిలక్ష్మి.

ఆమెను వెతుక్కుంటూ దగ్గరగా వచ్చి వెనక చేతులు కట్టుకుని అంతా కాసేపు ఆసక్తిగా గమనించి "-ఏంచేస్తావే ఇన్ని కట్టెలూ...?"అన్నాడు అప్పదాసు దీర్ఘాలు తీస్తూ.

ఆవిడ చురుక్కున ఒక చూపు చూసి"రేపు నువ్వు హరీ అంటే చితిపేర్చడానికి

మిధునం శ్రీ రమణ రాసిన కథల సంపుటి. వివిధ పత్రికలలో ప్రచురించిన కథలను పుస్తకంగా ప్రచురించారు.
ఇందులోని కథలు "అరటిపువ్వు సాములారు" 'తేనెలో చీమ" "వరహాల బావి" "ధనలక్ష్మి" "షోడా నాయుడు" "బంగారు మురుగు" "పెళ్ళి" "మిధునం" కథలున్నాయి. కథలన్నీ కూడ హృదయానికి హత్తుకు పొయే విధంగా ఉన్నాయి. ఓ మంచి పుస్తకం చదివిన అనుభూతి కలిగింది.

Its been over two years that I had read a book written in Telugu and absolutely loved it! This is a collection of 6 (or 7) short stories, all of them set in the backdrop of a village mostly in Coastal Andhra.

Beautiful stories rooted in Telugu nativity and life. The book's namesake, Mithunam, left me speechless with its insanely heartening portrayal of the couple. Splendid!

This book is a beautiful collection of stories that reminds you of your roots. It made me laugh and cry at the same time. All the characters are so relatable. My personal favorites are Bangaru Murugu, Mithunam, Dhanalakshmi and Pelli in the order. Give it a read!

వేడి వేడి అన్నంలో, గడ్డ పెరుగు వేస్కుని, అందులొ వేసవిలొ పెట్టిన కొత్తావకాయ నంజుకంటె ఉండె సుఖమే "మిథునం" అనే నవల.
