Books by Indian(Mallu) Authors

I had picked up a tag from Asha. It's time to put the post. The post is supposed to be about books by Indian authors. In my case, when I list out the favorite ones, they end up being all by Malayali authors. It doesn't matter anyway.

  1. Driksaaskhikal (Eye Witnesses): By Unnikrishnan Thiruvazhiyodu. The factual fiction is a story which starts on the day Indira Gandhi was murdered. He describes well how things started going wrong after her death – about the riot. I want to read it again. He even mentions about the initial inability of the "Chief of Crisis Management Department" at this crisis… in a nice way.. (a small incident in the novel).
  2. Randaamoozham (Second Chance): The celebrated novel by MT. The novel which changed the way I (and many millions in Kerala) interpreted Mahabharata and especially Bhimasena. Wonderfully written… Can't explain more.
  3. Oru Sankeerthanam Pole (Like a Symphony – actually I can't say what a Sankeerthanam is… so I say symphony): One of the best novels ever. I was doing my Pre-Degree Course. One afternoon I saw the book with Sujith, I borrowed it. I started reading while I was in the bus to home. I didn't stop reading until I finished the book. It had this wonderful flow.
  4. Yanthram (The Machine): The IAS case diary kind of stuff – written by a late IAS officer – Malayattoor Ramakrishnan. I wouldn't say that it is that great or anything. But it still stays in mind.
  5. The God of small things: Read the English version itself. The author is Indian, happens to be Malayali too – Arundhathi. This was really a wonderful novel. More than the novel/plot/theme, what I liked was the way she explained things, the description, and the imagery – simply too good.

I'd say that this list would do for the time being. Except the first and the last, I've read all of them more than once.

All regular reader of mine are encouraged to leave a note and take the tag! ;)

Signing off, Sands.

Good choices. Unnikrishnan's works are very special. You may also like the "Manasakshi" (some thing like that) based on Rajiv Gandhi assassination.
