This book carries Hindi translation of Sahitya Akademi award winning Malayalam novel -Chemmeen by noted Malayalam novelist Thakazhi Sivasankara Pillai. It has been translated by Mohan Singh.
Thakazhi, who had so far been known as a stark realist, tempers his realism in Chemmeen with a new romanticism. The result is that Chemmeen has the quality of a fable in which he lives, superstitions, the inner beliefs, the traditions and the sufferings of the community of fishermen are portrayed as a way of life with a deep and significant moral.
