Avaastavikudu - Ampasayya Naveen
It is the story about a professor who dreams of bringing a change in the college and education system he has dedicated his life to. He is a man of principles and values and a very impractically practical person who brings in wrath of so many people in his journey for a proper world. His failure to recognize not everyone is perfect is his big flaw. He has a set of beliefs and he wants others to blindly implement them. He wants things to change for good in a few days, bring everything to track in a very unruly college to which he is posted a principal. The problems with the staff who have been used to lazy life and their politics, with students and even his own wife and son, leave him distressed and the way the events turnout, the way he is left to abandon everything never to return again depicts many real life aspects..
the way anger and aggression leads to failure of a person, the need for one person to be practical even if it is eventually for the greater good of the society, makes us think. The book clearly depicts what is going on in the educational system in the state, helplessness at such things and also the result to expect extreme change within no time with strict rules that backfire.. a good read!!
