    Nice novel The character of INDHULEKHA clearly describes what meant by the word female.

    It is really amazing how I could relate so easily to the characters in the book who belonged to the generation of my great great grand parents at least And a story woven in such a simple and detailed manner

    In keeping with my resolution to readtranslations Supposedly this was the first novel in Malayalam The period description of a late 19th century Kerala tharavaad is fascinating The English translation isn t terribly inspiring, and the story is a pretty tame love story in the context of today s times But some of the views expressed must have been revolutionary for the times debates about atheism, women being English educated, the Nair marriage system etc. Quite an introduction to Mal In keeping with my resolution to readtranslations Supposedly this was the first novel in Malayalam The period description of a late 19th century Kerala tharavaad is fascinating The English translation isn t terribly inspiring, and the story is a pretty tame love story in the context of today s times But some of the views expressed must have been revolutionary for the times debates about atheism, women being English educated, the Nair marriage system etc. Quite an introduction to Malayalam literary history

    3 for the plot itself which isn t anything great I gave it a 4 for two reasons primarily First, it was very interesting to knowabout the Nair and Namboodri practices in the 19th century While I was aware about the matrilineal system, I understood a good dealthrough this book and the inevitable googling wikipedia that followed Secondly, the translation is quite wonderful really it brings alive the complicated relationships in a village and Tharavad, the rumour mongering, the n 3 for the plot itself which isn t anything great I gave it a 4 for two reasons primarily First, it was very interesting to knowabout the Nair and Namboodri practices in the 19th century While I was aware about the matrilineal system, I understood a good dealthrough this book and the inevitable googling wikipedia that followed Secondly, the translation is quite wonderful really it brings alive the complicated relationships in a village and Tharavad, the rumour mongering, the native cunning and innocence, the peculiar nature of conversations, the friction caused by modern English education in a traditional setup and finally the emotional silliness of young love aspects, which can be easily lost in a translation done by someone who hasn t closely seen lived in such an environment, or known people like that

    Love the book and reflects the times Nair women lived in absolute freedom, where they got to choose their life partner and the things they generally wanted to do with their lives Speaking her mind was no alien concept to Indulekha, the protagonist and you would only end up being in awe of her I read the translated version which was rich with descriptions of everything and I am sure the Malayalam version and the original is nothing short of a masterpiece.

    Conquered the first Malayalam novel.Apart from the love story of Indulekha and Madhavan around which the story revolves, what attracted me the most was the 18th chapter to be precise.The discussion about atheism, about educating girl child which surprisingly is still a very hot topic The fact that the first ever edition of this book got sold out in a few months speaks for the book.I would say Indulekha as a novel deals with matters that are still relevant.
