reading it, I was taken aback by the extent of swearing in the novel I came back enriched with a new vocabulary Set in pre Independence India, Bhyrappa bases his story of pathos and anguish in a small village near Tiptur As a narrative of poverty, the book is unstinting in detail It made me cringe thinking of how privileged I am I also cringed throughout the book for another reason the misogyny and abuse Wives are routinely beaten up A rape is condoned and casually brushed aside Women are all considered sluts Children are abused violently, verbally and physically In the midst of it all, there s one woman, Nanjamma, who braves an utterly idiotic husband to bring up a family in a relentless battle against prejudice, plague, and poverty It s for her that I like the book She is representative, to a certain extent, of the courage that women embody, in ways that defy the norms of a society bent on humiliating them How broken are those families that view women as commodities, bartered, sold, and thrown away Grihabhanga Thank you for the review copy rupapublications I read Aavarana by Bhyrappa and it has remained my favourite ever since When rupapublications sent across Grihabhanga, I was

Set during the British rule, Grihabhanga is the story of a family in Karnataka The protagonist, Nanjamma speaks about the author s mother while the youngest son Vishwa is none other than him When you sit back and think about the story as a whole, there s not much to go give credit for I admit that the book focuses on the lives of women back in the 30s and 40s and the hardships they were subjected to but I could not find enough story to like it Nanjamma gets married into the village accountant s family and all her happiness dissipates the minute she enters the house Her husband and brother in law are useless men who laze around all day and find joy only in eating Her mother in law is a cruel woman who hurls abuses at her every day Nanjamma singlehandedly runs the house by working secretly as an accountant while her husband is the face of it But soon, the villagers realise that it is Nanjamma who handles their accounts Her life is sprinkled modestly with sadness for she loses her two bright children while they were just teenagers The pain that she had to painstakingly go through to provide food for her family is shockingly vivid Men back then used to abuse their wives both physically and mentally while they enjoyed being the master The fate of many women like Nanjamma are portrayed in the novel The book is huge and seems daunting because the language used it quite compliance The characters are referred in Kannada which makes it tough for others to read The names are many and often lead to confusion The book is filled with vulgar words and I found it very disturbing to read it This novel by Bhyrappa is widely acclaimed but I can t seem to understand why The depth of characters are brilliantly explored but I felt a deep sense of restlessness after I finished reading it It may have to do with the fact thatthan half of the book was dragged at snail s pace A book that could have been wrapped up in few chapters has been stretched significantly Although there s not much to enjoy about it, it does give the readers a clear picture about how superstitious people were back then A book that has been loved by many, failed to impress me A meek 3.5 stars for me One of the finest books of S.L.Bhyrappa I have Heard so many people saying that his novels Are good Its not only good its the best As i started reading this book i was Shocked to find so
