ஆம் ஆண்டுக்கான சாகித்திய அகாதமி விருது வழங்கப்பட்ட இவரது காவல் கோட்டம் நூல் நாயக்கர் ஆட்சி களத்தில் தொடங்கி ஆம் நூற்றாண்டின் முற்பகுதி வரை நீள்கிறது இந்த புதினம் மதுரை அருகே தாதனூர் எனும் கிராமத்தில் நடைபெறுவதாக அமைகிறது பெருந்திரளான எண்ணிக Kaaval Kottam Why it deserves the likes of a Man BookerA must read book for anyone interested in knowing the rich history of beautiful Madurai and the past of caste system in Tamil NaduThis novel runs through the period starting from the Nayakar occupation of Madurai till it falls in to the hands of British and in to the 1930 s It has a shocking narrative of the oppression of a particular community in TN and also clearly depicts the social standing of every other community occupying today s TNThis novel particularly shook me and changed the way i look at Madurai forever Its particularly appealing when someone from Madurai reads it Imagine how it is when the origin of the place where you reside or work or the little restaurant you usually eat is accurately detailed to end in a book like this I found most places mentioned in the book which are now tucked away in nooks and corners in the old city found the factual place of the old fort walls the ramayanam chavadi and much planning an expedition along the madakulam kanmai soonHow far someone from elsewhere could understand the places and other historical people mentioned in the book is up to the person themselvesThe book has become kind of a comforter to mei read a few random pages when i feel bad or happy or whenever i feel like reading itThank you Venkatesan for writing such a wonderful novel and for shedding so much light and life in to the history of Madurai which i love so much How far people have gone to underestimate and under depict and treat certain communities shows the crookedness of human minds through the centuries This could certainly be understood in this bookI will say that this book surely deserves even a Man Booker if it had been in English I ll say this because I ve been reading all the Booker winners every year Anyone who have read this will acknowledge this fact
