Description

Awadheshwari published in 1987 got the Sahitya Akademi award in 1988. A well researched political novel of the Vedic times, it is a brilliant word-picture of the social-political ethos of the period. In particular, it centres around the fulcrum of the practice of niyoga, the practice, prevalent at the time, of legal adultery, of an infertile husband allowing his wife to beget progeny from another man.

Through a host of plots ad subplots, it tells the reader how the practice came to an end. The novel is one among the all-time bests of creative fiction in Kannada.
