Book Review | Aavarana: The Veil

He is also rich enough to not write books for money. Through the s and s, while he lived in Gujarat, New Delhi and Mysore, Bhyrappa wrote prolifically, shifting at will from the contemporary to the historical, and urban to rural settings. My only hope avaranaa that this does not lead to some more mindless violence and yet another idiotic book ban. There’s a problem loading this menu right now.

Best Historical fiction I have ever read. How did they treat people of their ilke? Is anyone aware whether this book is available in other languages.

One person found this helpful. I read the English translation. This book should be read in that context and not “Hindu-Muslim” relations or what happened during muslim rule. In these circumstances, seeking truth in textbooks or newspapers is an an exercise in futility, to say the least. I have respect for all the religions. If u come to common people, they do live in harmony depending on each other irrespective of the religions and faiths. I was introduced to Dr. My only concern is, readers of our generation young and open-minded should at least be able to look at the issue objectively and not emotionally.


But I was too slow to read in Kannada.

Its difficult to give a full review or discuss the book without giving away the plot. I am very much interested to read after the marvellous review post.

Bhyrappa [Translated By Sandeep Balakrishna]. The greater purpose of art is to reveal a truth and SL Bhyrappa has achieved that in his novel.

This is an absolute tour de force on the realities of a period of Indian history, woven bhyfappa into the life and work of the protagonist. Poses pertinent and sensitive questions from India’s history of sultanate rule. While reading Avarana I had so many questions going inside my head.

ಆವರಣ [Aavarana]

Bhyrappa could have written it better. Its about – Doing away with meaningless customs in the present situation irrespective of the religions and learning the real essence of religion — live and let live. Aav The act of concealing bhrappa in Sanskrit is called “Aavarana” while the act of projecting lies is known as “vikshepa”. Perhaps, that is where the literary merit of the book lies.
