Fantastic, Superb, Thrilling and Disturbing – all at the same time! Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

Its a real history of what we faced in long back years and also now in some places. How is it that I could see the humanism and he could not? Why should we be interested in the lives and times of the kings who dwelled on this earth a few centuries ago? As the author states, “The reader too aavrana an equal responsibility with the author in his quest for truth” So much for the democracy of our country which stands by the motto: You can change the name, place and time and go to any village in India and you will see similar way of life.

The hard truths revealed will shake your conscience. Word to word and point to point we can see the reality though not how we want to visualise it but in a factual way!

ಆವರಣ [Aavarana]

Irrespective of the religions we belong, I think we all need to respect one aspect of Hinduism – it stands for its tolerance. Aavarana’s agenda is to restore truth, at all costs. Humans have long used select passages of scriptures to justify anything and everything from violence to oppression, ignoring those very same scriptures that advocate love and inclusion and non-violence. I am very much interested to read after the marvellous review post.


Oneindia Kannada in Kannada. I wonder why this is never taught in our History books despite having documented evidence of avaranz facts.

Consequently, his characters are deeply rooted in Indian soil.

The Kannada novel “Aavarana” by S. Lakshmi, clouded by love and a heady socialist euphoria that prevailed in that age, does not pay much importance to her symbolic conversion to Islam. They never said that nothing xvarana the holocaust happened.

The novel has reflected all strata of society — from an uneducated rural setting to the highly educated urban setting, from unquestionable faith of the simple and common people to the all questioning and non believing, ever lobbying intellectuals and elite.

It spread by spreading Terror only. Standing up to the politically correct version of discourse is not easy. It 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 Kannada publishing industry is much bewailed these days. It takes us into the annals of the history and introduces us to a totally different world bokk the Mughals lorded over avaarna nation.

One detailed review and discussion is here: But is it a provocative read? Then come up with an objective review, barring personal emotions. It boldly unveils how History is moulded by the writers and propagandists to fulfill their own narrow interests.

He is also rich enough to not write books for money. One of the best of S.


Not Enabled Screen Reader: I finished it in two days. We are flawed, shortsighted, that’s is what we should acknoledge and therein find a way across the ilusion and into All. But what has happened to the Bamion Buddhas in the recent past.? Let’s see what you feel after you read AvaraNa. How many of us remember reading good amount of history about the Vijayanagar empire. I cherished every minute spent with itas well as the time spent with Lakshmi aka Razia the protagonist, who spent years to complete her fathers unfinished research work about Indian history to give it a shape and bring out the reality in the form of a fiction.


Now, as Amir tries to convince her that the Hampi destruction was caused by one Hindu sect seeking vengeance against the other, Razia begins to question accepted mythologies.

Students are allowed to make up their minds after weighing arguments all the sides present. What a brilliant book. I could not put the book down once I picked it up. Lakshmi is someone who’ll always remain in my memories, so will Narasimhe Gowda, Shesha Sastri Aavarana is a thought provoking and compelling read.

That voice can be taken to be the voice of Hindu Dharma declining because of the assaults it endured. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Though Islam has come in for rough treatment, to put it mildly, there are some parts that cause a person to pause and think for a while.

He made me, even if it was just for I read the English translation. And she finds out that although Indian society has come a long way over the centuries, it still remains as rigid as before. A lot has been said about the ideological nature of the book, but it is meritorious purely as a novel. But i learnt from islam to respect other religions also. What did I like in the book? The ease with which the story shifts back and forth in time is excellent. I liked it all.

Yes, Hinduism and Hindu kingdoms too had and have power politics destroying the essence of common and simple life. He is already the best novelist in Kannada by a mile. Excellent story and Narration.
