Description
About the Author:

S. L. Bhyrappa, former Professor of philosophy and connoisseur of Hindustani classical music, is a best-selling Kannada novelist. He has published twenty novels besides several scholarly works. His novels have been translated into English as well as into many Indian languages, and received prestigious awards. Some of them have also been made into films by well-known directors.

S. Ramaswamy is a Fellow of Silliman College, Yale University. A gold medallist from Mysore University and three-time Fulbrighter, he has to his credit seven books in English and Kannada and over a hundred research papers.

About the Book:

The development of the Kannada novel began in the latter half of the nineteenth century, with modern trends and themes appearing in the early twentieth century. The freedom struggle, and the ideologies associated with it, attracted the attention of leading novelists. Interestingly, this period also saw the revival of historical and mythological novels in Kannada.

S.L. Bhyrappa, Karnataka's leading literary figure, is well known for his profound study of philosophical question. In Sartha, he recreates the atmosphere of a bygone era with an authenticity that is his hallmark. Through this gripping narrative, a vast panorama of the past unfolds before us. Details of eights-century India flood the pages, creating an experience that is rich and strange to readers uninitiated into the wealth and diversity of India a millennium ago.

Sartha can be discussed at several levels. It is a historical novel defying western critical opinion that Indian fiction lacks a sense of the historical. At another level, it is a Picaresque novel that concerns itself with the escapades of the protagonist. On yet another plane it is a metaphysical one, dealing with the philosophy of Advaita. Finally, it is a romance, a very readable story about the true love of Nagabhatta and Chandrika.

Testimonials
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
