ಕೊರೆವ ಚಳಿರಾತ್ರಿಯಲ್ಲೂ
ತಾರಸಿಯ ಮೇಲೆ ಬವಳಿಸಿ
ಬೇಸಿಗೆಯ ನೆನಪಿಸುತ್ತಾ
ಮನಕೆ ತಂಪೆರೆದು
ಹುಚ್ಚು ಹಿಡಿಸಿದ ಹುಡುಗಿ

ವಿ. ಸೂ: ಕಳೆದ ಚಳಿಗಾಲದಲ್ಲಿ ನನ್ನ ಸಂಗೀತ ಶಿಕ್ಷಣ-ಅನುಭವಗಳ ನೆನಪಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೆದದ್ದು.

Masking of truth - Aavarana

There are two versions in representation of history. One is the fact based approach where everything that happened and well documented is presented as history. The second one is a much interesting. It is depiction of history which is to the comforts of current socio-political structure. This involves a lot of masking,twisting and tweaking of historical facts such that the current generation lives in a state of bliss. But like a nice colored building on top of a false foundation, this results in various problems in the society. This is said as the basis and motivation for the novel - Aavarana

Now, I am yet to read the book and would reserve my review till that time. But here are the previews I could find.



The first print of the novel is already sold out and the second print is on the way. The book is still to arrive in US but even here, the first print books are already reserved for. The second print books can be reserved by contacting the Saahitya Bhandara site here


Inventory is here


Anyone who already got his hands on the book - Please feel free to comment and post a review if possible.
