Life in a small village of Tamil Nadu comes alive through the eyes and ears of the author. The stories take the readers on a rollercoaster ride-from the excitement of Jallikattu-an ancient bull-taming sport to petty politics during village elections; from a young man pulled off a bus by villagers and made to marry the girl he had promised; from the village shop where anyone could walk in and buy on credit to the protests over the Koodankulam nuclear plant. From the Uvari Legend that led to the setting up of the St Anthony's Church to a temple priest revolting against the installing of a hundial in the temple. The Lourdes of South India tells us about the famous church of Annai at Velankanni where everyone -Hindus and Christians, come to pray. Fascinating stories of women beedi makers, temple festivals, marriage rituals-all make the village come alive with characters whom we all recognise and identify with. Printed Pages: 280.
