And The Roots Go Deep- Tamilmagan

 260.00  250.00

A time travel fiction that begins in 2037 A.D with Dev, a Mars Mission specialist, traumatized by a Tsunami in Japan. Dev’s brain travels back and forth on a timeline when he is asleep and starts visualizing himself as Prince Rajendra Cholan of the ancient past, John Wilbur and Saravanan of recent times. He uncovers the truth behind the origin of the oldest language spoken on the surface of the earth – Tamil. If history, both ancient and modern coupled with scientific proofs, reveals that there is an entire race that wants to protect the sanctity of Tamil language, at the cost of sacrificing valuable human lives; it makes us wonder if there is more to it than what meets our eyes. From ancient Indus Valley Civilization to futuristic Altabs and Touch Sheets, interspersed with fact-based fiction, did Dev succeed in translating the visuals from his brain trenches to a substantial discovery?

When a ten-year-old Tanya discovers a mysterious, furry creature in her balcony, unbeknownst of its identity or origin, she embraces it into her life and unknowingly changes the course of her world’s history.The world little Tanya has inherited is centred around the fictional and futuristic colony of Kalpana Nagar, nestled somewhere in the locale of South Delhi, in the year 2050. It’s a land of flying advertisement drones and creeping city sludge, of miniature wearable ‘computers’ and lofty mountains of garbage. It’s where a strict Mamma and a kind, old ‘Jiji’ complete Tanya’s family and where, without telling them, Tanya hopes to rear a new family member, who she’s innocently taken to be her little brother.But the gutsy girl doesn’t realise that she and her ‘brother’ are separated by over 40 million years of evolution and in this fast choking world, there might not be a place for two little children of Mother Nature, or as an old African poacher likes to call her ‘Mama Asili’.

Dangling Gandhi- Jayanthi Sankar

A  spectacular bouquet of a dozen stories travelling across time and space through colourfully multicultural contexts. The nonlinear narrative style helps the reader flow with the kaleidoscopic presentation of events.
– Dr. Lalitha Menon, retd Professor and HOD, Calicut, India

The stories are aptly published while we celebrate Singapore’s Bicentennial. ‘Punkah Wallah’, a delightful fiction worth re-visiting brings to life the different classes of our society, origins, cultures and how they functioned during the earliest  days of the last century. ‘Did Churchill know?’ left me pleasantly surprised, shocked, and bemused.
– Angela Leong, Director of a Research firm, Singapore

Thoroughly enjoyed the short stories, finding them gripping and touching, with unexpected little twists. On my second reading, with real concentration, I found them even more interesting. They made me think more, and that is a good thing!
– Valerie Dümpelmann, EFL instructor, Germany

… is not only a story of how different generations relate to literature. A brilliant short story emblematically highlights many of the problems that characterize Tamil literature as a set of social practices in Singapore today.

Huntsman-Lakshmi saravanakumar

Huntsman-Lakshmi saravanakumar

 330.00  300.00

The beauty of Lakshmi Saravanakumar’s novel, Huntsman, lies in how masterfully Saravanakumar weaves issues of ecology and wildlife, rights of forest dwellers, and the clash between the traditional and the modern in a plot that is as gripping as the moments one might spend sitting on a machan on a tall tree in a dense forest on a full moon night, anticipating the arrival of a tiger.

What I specifically loved in Huntsmanwere the details that built up the novel when the bigger issues were not being narrated. For example, the naturalness with which polygamy and polyamoury has been depicted. I am afraid I might give out spoilers, but I cannot not mention the relationship that Thangappan – the leading man, the eponymous “huntsman” of the novel – has with his three wives – Mari, Sagayarani, and Chellayi – and the feelings about other men that the wives might have. Then there is Thangappan’s masculinity which is fragile enough to be hurt by the disapproval of a child. I would just say that these details – apart from the important bigger parts which are already there – are what make Saravanakumar’s Huntsmansuch an engrossing and – I believe it is – important read.
