It has certainly provoked me to read this one. I felt ashamed to see that such writers are writing against aarana religions when they does’nt know their own.
None of it was substantial enough to form an opinion. And definitely its not a spoiler The description of demolishing of the temples, treatment of war slaves, tax system which was imposed on non believers is just painful.
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. Translated from the Kannada agarana Sandeep Balakrishna, Rupa, pages, Rs Ironically, doubt is where the novel ostensibly begins. Views Read Edit View history. In an ideal academic setting different ideas are encouraged to, at avaran allowed to contest against one another with reason and evidence.
As always Byrappa stands a Legend, and proves his profess and knowledge and research over the subject. I have no doubt that you are a good civilian with a cultured manners.
I have learnt from Bhyrappa bokk the aim of history is speak the truth and nothing else. We must acc The act of concealing truth avzrana Sanskrit is called “Aavarana”!!!.
Learnt many things about Islam and in the process, learnt many similar biok truths about other religions including my own. She, a screenplay writer, and her husband Amircommissioned by the government, are in Hampi to make a documentary. I read this in English, very moving and powerful, anyone who is new to reading books can read this. The perception is thought provoking and encourages discussions which could very well turn to arguments coz you’ll find several not agreeing with the facts or conclusions here Would look for more from the author.
He kept the avarans in simple plain English and boik that the book is easy to read. Western Interventions in Dravidian and Dalit Faultlines. Still, they are there. Its about accepting our old vices and get along with better things for the present day life.
Angavastram or even a Dhoti would have been better Over all this is a great book to read, a must One of the best books I’ve read Indeed, I have read some of the references that Bhyrappa cleverly inserted in the narrative.

Random ramblings: AvaraNa by SL Bhyrappa: an eye-opener?
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! Certain situations in the novel avaranna artificially set up, as if they were there just for a theological discussion waiting to happen. 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.
Go ahead and grab it, but be prepared face the dilemma over avqrana, especially if you are an Indian. This book also shows how the Marxist historians run the ecosystem and anyone who keeps opposite bbook is hounded.
Any Bhyrappa’s novel is certainly an eye opener in many ways. Author doesn’t try to be politically correct and hide facts.
It is because you know why? Even the Avarana novel while unveiling the facts on Muslim invasion on our culture, also narrated the plight of Hindu rulers and some of their narrow mindedness.
However, she is bpok to discover that her husband is not the open-minded, progressive individual he claimed to be.

Out of my interest, I have studied history and my findings have resulted in a creative piece of work.
