    Description

    Vyakti Aani Vyalli (Marathi), written by Purushottam Laxman Deshpande, features 20 character sketches based on real-life incidents and characters, written in the Marathi language.

    Summary Of The Book

    In Vyakti Aani Vyalli (Marathi), readers will be drawn in by a variety of character sketches of people from different walks of life.

    The stories in this book were written between 1944 and 1968, and therefore depict issues that were prevalent during those times. For instance, Deshpande’s Bhaiyya Nagpurkar, was one of the first characters the author created. Nagpurkar is depicted as a wealthy Brahmin man who is often mistaken as someone who is a Muslim, and admires Gandhi. He likes music and drinking, but does not drink when Gandhi fasts.

    Vyakti Aani Vyalli (Marathi) also depicts people one would meet in normal circumstances of life. Characters such as Paropakari Gampu, Namu Parit, and Narayan, capture the mundaneness of everyday life. For instance, Namu Parit is a humble washer man. He purposely destroys buttons so that he could use his customers’ clothing for himself. Parit possesses reprehensible habits, which do not seem to affect his super ego. Lakhu Risbud is another character who dreams of creating a change in the world through his writing. Unfortunately, life’s circumstances force him into an assistant editor’s role at an unknown magazine.

    Vyakti Aani Vyalli (Marathi) earned Deshpande the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1965.

    Awsome Read!! Hats of P.L.!!

    Its one of my all time favorite book! Its amazing how Pu.La. observes each and every minute habit of vyallis and put it exactly in word.

    Each story will make you smile as well as it will end with an impression of sorrow lies inside the personality.

    5 star rating is very less for each and every book written by P.L. Deshpande.

    Vyakti and Valli

    A amazing observational skill of Pu.La.Deshpande brings to life these 20 characters. Each one of them unique in their own way and yet so common to be found in our day to day life.

    Intelligent humor coupled with simplicity of the characters described brings them very close to you.

    A 100% recommended reading for any marathi novel reader inspired by Pu.La.Deshpande's works.

    Best in Marathi Literature

    Vyakti ani valli, i think is the best creation by pu la deshpande and also in the marathi literature..
    The last two sentences of each character seems like the turret of all. They silently brings few drops on the edges of eyes.
    I specially like characters of nanda pradhan, antu barva, narayan, sakharam gatne, to, hundred percent pestonkaka, babadu, nama parit bhayya nagpurkar etc etc etc. As per the name of this book, pu la especially took the 'vallies' in society to sketch those character...
