It is written like a novel, but up to some level it is an auto biography also. Got “Jnanapeeda” award and “Kendra Sahitya Academy” award. This is published by DC Books in 1971. It sketches the men and women of “Athiranippaadam”. The story has a time span of about 55 yrs and goes to some countries like Iraq, Africa and Switzerland as well as north India. The reader will definitely get a nostalgic feeling.
