  • 4.25Brilliant Was hunting for the author s acclaimed Parva when this suddenly popped up and resulted in an impulsive buy And how I m glad for a hardcover with a beautiful apt cover and a matching title.Coming to the book, wish I had some first hand experience of classical music The parts describing how an artist starts with singing and slowly elevates to different levels is superbly written capturing many details Too good.Though it deals with adultery on a big scale, it was contained and express [...]


  • Was a literary and artistic feast depicting the rise and fall of a brilliant star in the world of classical music.Mohanlal, born of an impoverished mother is taught the basics of music by a devout swami ji in an ashram He soon leaves behind his guru and seeks better teachers in the quest for ascension in the fiefdom of Hindustani music world He succeeds But his womanising ways and hid mulishness cost him a lot He marries twice, fathers half a dozen children, in and out of wedlock, and leads a co [...]


  • Excellent, Deep, Must read for everyone Its not just a mere novel It is a musical journey One would certainly want to listen to all the Classical Hindustani Raagas that comes in this novel Slightly adult and revolves around the illicit relationship of all the characters However, the protagonist of the novel Pandit Mohanlal and his experiments sic with all the women he meets and sexual acts with all of them in the name of Hindustani Music is bit exaggerated Nevertheless, This is evident even now [...]


  • This is a must read book to understand the changing emotions of human beings The dialogues are very less and the characters are thinking for themselves continuously like us The internal agony, anger and frustration is depicted very beautifully The author s usage of different Ragas at appropriate points of time is quite impressive The only problem not very big is the sudden shift of narration, which I think is due to translation.

  • Another brilliantly written, thought provoking book In the Indian ethos Gurubhyo Devo Namaha Teacher is God is constantly taught imbibed However, can the Guru take advantage of his her position by leveraging this concept At the surface, the answer is obviously not Upon pondering, doesn t the disciple have the authority to draw the line rather than succumbing to be taken advantage off Since emotions play a significant importance in Art, individuals engaged in Art are constantly vulnerable to mak [...]


  • Another masterpiece from S L Bhyrappa Beauty of this book is that he doesn t get judgemental of the characters in the story and never preachy He lets the reader decide whether love, hate or be neutral towards them All the characters in the book Mohanlal, Manohari, Madhu, Champa, Chunni, Gore Saheb are so strong and at the same time vulnerable Looking at life from a artist perspective and trying to justify actions in the garb of artistic inspiration is beautifully portrayed in the novel You just [...]


  • As usual with any books by Bhyrappa, this too is an amazing read with wonderful narration great language Got to know lot about music through this book The characters at time are very intense in thoughts did keep me going going even though it was hard to get time to read much everyday All in all a wonderful read.
