Kallikattu Ithigaasam

Just read the book based on true story that won Sahitya Akademi award , the book that was translated into 22 Indian languages and in English, the book that made me think, cry every single page.

Honestly, sometimes I lost the courage to turn the next page…

So what makes Kallikaattu Ithigaasam unique? Unlike other books, there is neither a hero nor a villain…what the author portraits is life of an old farmer in drought prone region and the pain of evacuating his land onset of building Vaigai dam…

The role of PEYATHEVAR as a hard worker, farmer, lover, husband, father, grandfather, guardian, role model his perseverance, patience, daring is just🔥 and with the wise usage of words, Vairamuthu spreads the village tradition in every sentence.

Though Kallikaadu submerged, this epic Kallikaattu Ithigaasam will float in readers mind 4ever!
