    Description
    Kali and Ponna's efforts to conceive a child have been in vain. Hounded by the taunts and insinuations of others, all their hopes come to converge on the chariot festival in the temple of Ardhanareeswara, the half-female god. Everything hinges on the one night when rules are relaxed and consensual union between any man and woman is sanctioned. This night could end the couple's suffering and humiliation. But it will also put their marriage to the ultimate test.

    One part Woman

    Excellent book and one of the best I have read recently. The last chapters wherein the author narrates the predicament of the couple is terrific and I am unable to shake off the emotional turmoil it created in me, even now. Sad to hear that he was forced to stop writing .Hope he will come out of the problems created by this book and write its sequel. Highly recommended.

    Really Nice

    Bought with an intention of finding out what is there for people so much to bother about, and got disappointed on that particular front as i could find none.

    Beautifully written in backdrop of rural scenario of Tamil Nadu and brilliantly woven in fairy love tale of Kali & Ponna, the novel is about couple's tireless efforts of conceiving child and mental & emotional stress dealing with stigma attached with childless couple in society.

    Started with their endless efforts to praise various deit...

    Must buy!

    This book is beautifully woven, very delicately strewn together words and emotions.

    The problem with y particular copy is, about 40 pages are missing from my copy! Since I just found that out today (about 2 months since receiving it) I cannot ask for another copy. Will request the seller to check at their end. Will caution buyers to thoroughly check their copies as soon as they receive it.

    Go for it, if u wanna..

    A good, tantalising read. Nothing as controversial, compared to the ruckus created by the bastardised hindutva forces! But at least it increased the sales of the book.

    Brilliant

    One of the best novels ever, the characters of Khali and Poona are so miserable and pitiful yet it makes you fall in love with them for their adorable love.

    Also very good translation by Anirudh. Highly recommended.
