Description

A collage of stories, the growing rebellion in the young and educated Savithri; the spontaneous love of Girija that burns down the evil forces of the village; the adamant but nourishing affection of Shyamala that wins over the dalit Thippanna; the self-denying fetters of Nirmala's morality; the bewildered recognition of male exploitativeness in Stella; Basavaraj's longing to outgrow his insatiable thirst for womanising; Parvathi's irresistible calling-the coconut three; Basalinga's traumatic touch of the untouchable doctor Thimmappa,

With the combined strength of the sceptic and the saint, eminent Kannada literary-cultural figure Lankesh uncovers the invisible realities of politics and culture in contemporary India in these meditations on life's failures and fulfilments.

REVIEW:

The arrogance of the mighty
The failing of the meek
The vanity of the great
The conceit of the saint
To all this a mocking commentary
That tiny bird's twitter
-Neelu
