Delivered By

?
  • Usually Delivered in 4-5 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Gruhabhanga (Paperback, Kannada) Price: Rs. 310

Gruhabhanga is one of the several highly acclaimed works written by S. L. Bhyrappa. This Kannada novel bears proof of the author’s relentless search for truth and an exploration of women’s place in modern society.

Summary Of The Book

The temporal backdrop of the story is the early 20th century. The novel opens in a rural setting where Nanjamma, a woman who assays the various roles of daughter, wife, daughter-in-law, and mother, is trapped in a suffocating familial situation. She has to put up with her lazy, tobacco addicted husband Chennigaraaya, an overbearing mother-in law Gangamma and an uneducated, superstitious neighborhood in general. Added to all this is the curse of acute poverty.

Despite the apparently hopeless arrangement, Nanjamma shines with inner strength of determination and it is this strong will that drives her to finally overcome her problems. The character of Nanjamma is developed with such care on the part of the author that it becomes easy to understand and sympathize with Nanjamma’s daily trials and tribulations and finally rejoice at her victory.

The situation depicted in Gruhabhanga is essentially a microcosmic depiction of the Indian society at large where individuals and groups have twisted and molded cultural values for their own benefit thereby corrupting the ideal order. People like Nanjamma, become victims of such manipulations of gender and economy.

Gruhabhanga, published in 1970, is counted among the classics in native Indian languages. It has been translated into all the fourteen major languages in India by The National Book Trust. While most of his other novels are made into films, Gruhabhanga was adapted for television.

About S. L. Bhyrappa

S. L. Bhyrappa is considered a forerunner among modern Indian vernacular novelists. His works in Kannada cover a wide spectrum of issues and are hard to classify under any one of the several literary genres in contemporary Kannada literature.

Almost all of his works have been translated into different languages including English and were immensely successful. Among the novels that he wrote are Tabbaliyu Neenade Magane, Nayi Neralu and Daatu. His Vamshavruksha and Mandra had won special accolades. He has been variously honored with the Saraswati Samman, Sahitya Akademi award, Kannada Sahitya Academy award and many more.

Bhyrappa was born in Mysore and had a difficult childhood and youth. However, having braved the several ups and downs of life he went on to become a gold medalist in Philosophy from University of Mysore and earned a doctorate from Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda. His debut novel was published in 1961, following which he had four fruitful decades as an author of over twenty novels. He taught Philosophy at Sri Kadasiddheshwar College, Hubli, Sardar Patel University of Gujarat, from where he retired in 1991.

For S L Byrappa you don't need review. We are lucky to be alive in this period. Its a music to the heart and soul reading this novel. The novel is not a story it is just a journey with realistic characters. Byrappa comes with a deep knowledge of philosophy and psychology of human behavior. You can clearly sense it in this book.

First to review

One of the best from the legend : SLB

Gruhabhanga is one of the most important works of SLB and stands tall in field of kannada literature. It has a strong female character called Nanjamma which is inspirational in many ways. Set in rural india, the story takes lot of twists and turns all through which you wipe your eyes for Nanjamma. The book has been been transalated in all 14 languages which itself speaks the genuinty of the stuff of this book. Read it for Nanjamma, Chennigaraaya, Appaniah and Gangamma.
