Kanooru Heggadithi review Æ eBook or Kindle ePUB Kuvempu à 3 read & download read Kanooru Heggadithi Heir education amidst the torpor of manorial life the brothers are forced to witness the descent into cruelty of Chandrayya Gowda who breaks old familial ties and demands an impossible fealty The petty meanness of the Gowda s old age and the idealistic vitality of youth confront each other when Hoovayya and Ramayya both fall in love with Seethe their childhood playmate with disastrous conseuences for the manor house of Kanooru The epic conflicts of a decaying feudal order are seen through a multiplicity. Given that Kuvempu has written only 2 novels am a bit overwhelmed to think that there is only one to go Such is the scope and the sweep Set in pre Independence pre WWII Western Ghats it traces the fall of the old ways of the region and the setting in of the newer era of Gandhian ideals nationalism of modernity in the form of hospitals and schools And of Vedic Hinduism At many points Kuvempu looks at the old ways of the offerings to the Bhootas Panjurli Bhootaraya etc and hopes that the reforming guiding spirit of Hinduism with its Vedas Puranas Upanishads would come in and guide the common folk towards better lives He also puts the casteist practices of deceiving Brahmins ruling Shudra overlords and the lower castes that work for them under the microscope disapprovingly It is interesting that he expected casteist Hinduism to come with its scriptures and lift the common folk out of their miseries But then did he really believe in a casteless society or just a way out of the conniving ways of the Brahmins to better access to medicines and schools I think it would be presumptuous of me to put him on trial here There really isn t much to go by on this So I ll just leave that thought here and hope I can find other works where I can know about his inclinations on this topic It is also interesting that the modern generations are flocking towards practices like Bhootakolas Kambala and Jallikattu recognising them as a part of one s culture as against Sanskritic Hinduism which is seen as an imposition from the NorthIn some ways I find the work of his son KP Poornachandra Tejaswi interesting when it comes to talking about casteism and society But then he lived in an independent India seeing how things turn out there politically Such a vision was not accorded to Kuvempu when he wrote this book So I guess I ll read this as a book of the 30s and the change in the ways of life of people at that time After all how much should we be judging books written at a particular time with the modern eye which has seen a lot than what the author saw in terms of history How much would Kuvempu have changed in his outlook and views over the years Malegalallli Madumagalu was from the 60s it would be interesting to note what Kuvempu thought as a 60 year old as against a 30 year old If you read Mookajjiya kanasugalu Karanth comes across as homophobic What was he over the rest of his life We don t know Should we hold him against that I don t knowComing to the book itself I found it interesting that he modelled Hoovayya after himself the bent nose and all that But then Kuvempu was a striking man fair and tall So am not blaming him it just made it easier to visualise His values move from wanting to be a great man who can spread some good to the people around him to eventually becoming a Buddha like monk after all that life throws at him Chandrayya stands like the figurehead for the old ways refusing to compromise wanting to hold on eventually left with nothing in the end There is his young wife and how people marrying young women at a much later age can cause issues in the natural order of things The ruin does start with that and we are clearly shown that in the case of Annayya Gowda Eventually the Buddha like Hoovayya prevails and the inevitable winds of modernity blow into the Malnad regions It will be left to his son to write about the depredations modernity causes to the Western Ghats Am sure Kuvempu would have been lamenting that too There are the Shettys who work as the seregaras overseers who bring in people from the DK district and get them to work There is some stereotyping here seeing those from DK the Tulu speakers as uncultured and given to immoral doings Even with Malegalalli Madhumagalu the seregara is one of the villains What really stands out is the description of the ghats There aren t just birds there are specific birds I wished the translator had tried to understand what each bird was instead of just writing madivala birds Oriental Magpie robin pikalara bird bulbuls kajana racket tailed drongo bird The English names in the parentheses are from me The seasons as they move on and how they reflect on the Ghats are beautifully described He was a poet and it would be interesting to read him in Kannada Would be a real labour of loveAs much as I am critical initially this is an enjoyable work an epic which lays bare the life of the times from the beauty of the flowers the singing birds to exhilarating wild boar hunts opening up the world for you to understand and critiue You enter the book live in the Ghats through the seasons and come out only at the end

Kanooru Heggadithi review Æ eBook or Kindle ePUB Kuvempu à 3 read & download read Kanooru Heggadithi From Kannada's first Jnanpith award winner a landmark of modern fiction that documents a vanishing world When Hoovayya and Ramayya return from their studies in the city to their ancestral home much has changed throwing the even tenor of village life out of joint The entry of Subbamma the young wife of much married Chandrayya Gowda into the House of Kanooru sets in motion an irrevocable chain of events which signify the coming of age of a resolutely traditional society Acutely conscious of the burden of t. Reading The House of Kanooru is like putting words to a Pollock painting It s extremely colourful strewn over a vast canvas There are some patches that are inexplicably beautiful Every chapter unfurls a little of the world of Kanooru a village that is too small to be even shown on a map as Seethe discovers But the village brims with a memorable line up of characters that refuse to leave my mind even after a day There are idealists like Hoovayya unctuous ones like Rangappa Shetty and greedy ones like the Joisa And then there is Subamma Soma and Chandrayya Gowda the ones that arrest your attention with the changes in their personalities In addition the vivid portrayal of village life with its uniue traditions and practices the landscape with its lush forests and hills work their charm on you At the end of it all I felt like I had walked the hills and forests myself and been a part of life in Kanooru of that richly detailed enthralling world So enthralling that my mind is pulled back to that world even as I am reading my next book Ah what a pity that the Rashtrakavi National Poet which is the title given to Kuvempu wrote only 2 novels
