Allow me to think on something else”. Ultimately truth will triumph! Most of Bhyrappa’s novels are based in and around a few districts of Karnataka or have characters that are from that region. I am no expert. Aavarana does not show any sympathy to reader and is more like an assault on the reader bhyrapa very thought-provoking and compelling arguments that make a reader think.

If not, I would urge you to do so. For instance, she attends a conference on text book writing that is quite reminiscent of the “detoxification” effort of our honorable government.

I wish to give a different perspective to the interested non-Kannadiga as well and that is why I am typing this post up in English. No one likes to admit that their religion has an unpleasant past avaranaa an unpleasant passage in its holy book.

My only hope is that this does not lead to some more mindless violence and yet another idiotic book ban. None of the professors in that meeting is able to answer Wvarana in argument and yet, her points never go well with the establishment. Bhyrappa has resorted to this to defend the book from possible bans.

Which are painful to remember. Standing up to the politically correct version of discourse is not easy. Avaranq remains silent on the responsibility of the majority in a geography peopled by multiple religions and the implications of settling a medieval score in the 21st century. The so called tolerant Islamic elected rulers debate in their parliament whether to include Harappa Mohenjo-Daro civilization details in the text books and are not ready to do so citing it will evade Muslim faith.

My head bows down to S. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The story revolves around the life of Lakshmi, a revolutionary Hindu woman who converts to Islam in order to marry her Bhyrappz only to realise that the conversion wasn’t a mere sham but an imposition on her to follow the tenets strictly.

Also i have read great vedas to understand what is hinduism, i dont read novels or documentaries to know about any religion. The only change is that the voice, in the case of ” AvaraNa “, has been emasculated – literally. But because of all this, it may not go down too well with the government.
