    After Ponniyin Selvan, I really didn t know what to expect, but so far this promises to be a captivating saga Although the translation leaves a lot to be desired, Kalki s writing style shined through and quickly lured me in I am eager to start the next volume.

    I have read all four volumes of this masterpiece and they are excellent reads I would like to thank and congratulate Nandini for the outstanding work she has done in translating this novel and at the same time, maintaining the tamil flavour Very strongly recommended for people who are interedted in Tamil history and literature.

    What an amazing journey This story was written in the early 1940 s revolves around the Pallava Dynasty, its kings and foes, the art and culture of the place and times, and of course, the people that made it colourful The book is very well researched and it is like living in that period.The first volume takes the reader to Kanchi s doorsteps The city was known in ancient days for its forward education and the arts This glorious city was famous all over Bharata Kanda, and a young Paranjyothi i What an amazing journey This story was written in the early 1940 s revolves around the Pallava Dynasty, its kings and foes, the art and culture of the place and times, and of course, the people that made it colourful The book is very well researched and it is like living in that period.The first volume takes the reader to Kanchi s doorsteps The city was known in ancient days for its forward education and the arts This glorious city was famous all over Bharata Kanda, and a young Paranjyothi is seen approaching it with a bikshu he met en route, to study and live here.When he reaches the city, he sees a commotion the reason being an elephant running amok Straight at the famous sculptor Aayanar and his danseuse daughter, Sivakami, who were returning from her arangetram that was stopped midway due to the king Mahendra Pallavar having to leave after hearing some urgent news He flings his spear at the animal, killing it, and thus protecting the father and daughter This naive, young man is sent on a mission, way before he can start his discipleship under the Aayanar, something which he came to the city for, in the first place.Under the able leadership of the king, art, music and culture flourish here There had been no wars in his lifetime But times are changing, foes are and allies are rethinking their boundaries, with war being imminent Amid the new developments, the Chakravarthy s son, Narasimha Mamallar falls for, complicating things further.Author tried her best to keep the spirit of the original by retaining few tamil words I m sure even non Tamils would find this book interesting Cant wait to start 2nd volume

    The only reason I picked this up is because it s part of Kalki s popular triumvirate Ponniyin Selvan, Sivakamiyin Sabadham and Parthiban Kanavu I loved Ponniyin Selvan But somehow this one was a bit of a letdown Maybe I ve outgrown the style and prose or maybe it s all very similar to the structure of Ponniyin I couldn t read beyond 44%, half of which was actually just a plodding on Bit the bullet and bade it adieu.I might still be open to listening to the Tamil version on an audiobook t The only reason I picked this up is because it s part of Kalki s popular triumvirate Ponniyin Selvan, Sivakamiyin Sabadham and Parthiban Kanavu I loved Ponniyin Selvan But somehow this one was a bit of a letdown Maybe I ve outgrown the style and prose or maybe it s all very similar to the structure of Ponniyin I couldn t read beyond 44%, half of which was actually just a plodding on Bit the bullet and bade it adieu.I might still be open to listening to the Tamil version on an audiobook though Still searching for one there s a 3 CD pack onthat looks like the real deal, but need to check before I buy it

    I could not take to this book at all I persisted till about 51% and then I had to abandon it But it s not Kalki s fault, I think I loved Kalki s short story collection which I had read earlier However, the absolutely bad translation made this book insufferable I just have to wait for a better translation or learn enough Tamil to read the original

  9. Aparnaa Aparnaa says:

    This is a faithful translation of the original book, and still keeps the flavor of written Tamil Should set the standard for a long while.
