Tamil translation of a Malayalam classic novel, Ini Njan Urangatte, one of the best Indian classics, which won the Vayalar Award. While the work is based upon Vyasa Bharatha, the author has recreated the characters and incidents independently. He has created of his own a parallel concept revolving around Draupadi and in those imaginary threads, he has fastened the petals of Karna's story.The soliloquies of Draupadi are innovative, imparting to it a philosophical dimension and giving a tragic depth in this work.
