1 S.L. Bhyrappa (Author), Dr S. Ramaswamy & L.V. Shantakumari (Trs)
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 9789381523360; Hardcover; New; New; 
Mandra, the Saraswati Samman winner for 2010, is one of the most acclaimed epic novels of Bhyrappa. Though it takes its theme from the classical question of art versus morality, many more subtler and complex issues haunting human life are marvelously interwoven. Rooted deeply in the harsh realities of the world, the governing theme evolves like a banyan tree in all directions and pictures many home-truths that are inseparable with art, artist, art-tradition, art-criticism and the world of connoisseurs.Printed Pages: 688. 106551

2 S.L. Bhyrappa; Translated from Kannada By S. Ramaswamy
Sartha: The Caravan
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195676017 / 9780195676013; First Edition; Hardbound; New; New; 
Sartha literally means a trading caravan. In ancient India, such caravans would travel to distant lands to trade with them. Sartha is a remarkable novel which works simultaneously on two planes. It is a physical journey across India, as well as a spiritual inward journey of an eighth-century scholar born to a tradition of Vedic studies. Nagabhatta, the scholar, is deputed by Amaruka, the king, to study the secrets of caravans of other lands in order to improve the economy of his kingdom. During his extensive travels, Nagabhatta becomes a witness to and comes under the influence of dozens of religious, social, and cultural modes. Unusual experiences and peoples are depicted in a historically changing time in the history of India. The novel is a result of a deep and extensive study of history and research conducted at actual locales, like Nalanda. It searches, creatively, the roots of conflicting religious beliefs which India is constantly facing. Bhyrappa is well known for his profound study of philosophical questions. In Sartha, he goes back in time to recreate the atmosphere of a bygone era with an authenticity that is his hallmark. Through this gripping narrative, a vast panorama of the past unfolds before us. It is a novel that abounds in details of eighth-century India, creating an experience that is rich and strange ? strange to readers uninitiated into the wealth and diversity of the India of more than a thousand years ago. Sartha can be discussed at several levels. It is a historical novel par excellence, defying western critics opinion that Indian fiction lacks historical sense. On another level, it is a Picaresque novel, in so far as it concerns itself with the escapades of the protagonist. On yet another plane it is a metaphysical novel, dealing with the philosophy of Advaitic thought. Finally, it is a romance, a very readable story about the true love of Nagabhatta and Chandrika.

3 S.L. Bhyrappa (Author) & S. Ramaswamy (Tr.)
Tantu: The Loom of Life
Niyogi Books; New Delhi, India; 8189738836 / 9788189738839; Hardcover; New; New; 
This epic novel examines the very fiber of contemporary Indian life – social, political and psychological – basically in terms of post-independence, post-Gandhian scene. It is panoramic in scope, moving as it does from Bangalore to a small village near Channarayapattana, to Mysore, to Banaras and Delhi. Police brutality, hooliganism at the village level, bourgeois culture, smuggling of works of art, betrayal of a great heritage for monetary benefit by mercenaries are some of the issues raised and dealt with. The ubiquitous corruption, bribery and nepotism in high places as well as in low places is portrayed with such absolute candour and honesty that the steady erosion of traditional values and the rank philistinism that has enveloped the present day life is shown as eating away the very moral fiber of India today.The true Gandhian idealist, a honest and uncompromising journalist-editor; a “liberated” career woman who sleeps around in order to gain favors in business; the academic-politician with a carefully cultivated charm seducing gullible and impressionable young women etc. All in all, it is simply a fascinating novel about modern India – surveying as it does the state of the country from Mahatma Gandhi to Indira Gandhi ending with the emergence of the “Emergency”.Printed Pages: 1236. 106557
