Foreword

There is neither a structure nor a texture to this blog. The subject matter can be anything and everything under the sky that I feel about at any given point that I happen to sit and blog rambling about everything in general. My thoughts and views are basically influenced by what I read, hear, gather, and ponder... if there is any copyright violation which I have not duly acknowledged, kindly let me know.

Ref: Chichkoo is what I lovingly call my daughter, kiddo my brother, amma and taatee my late maternal grandparents, and OA is the other adult in the family.

Maatakaari

Maatakaari is a translation of RK Narayan's Talkative Man

This was in May 2011 Chatura monthly, the translation by MV Ramana Reddy. Translation was good, read this in English, could not resist reading it in Telugu again. A story of Dr. Rann and the journalist, his sexual exploits, the way the journalist gets involved in everything.. it is an intriguing typical RKN style read, old world charm, the middle class mentality.

A realistic plot without oversensationalizing the topic, embedded in a comic framework as usual.. could visualize it with the Malgudi Days characters :).
