A collage of stories, the growing rebellion in the young and educated Savithri; the spontaneous love of Girija that burns down the evil forces of the village; the adamant but nourishing affection of Shyamala that wins over the dalit Thippanna; the self-denying fetters of Nirmala's morality; the bewildered recognition of male exploitativeness in Stella; Basavaraj's longing to outgrow his insatiable thirst for womanising; Parvathi's irresistible calling-the coconut three; Basalinga's traumatic touch of the untouchable doctor Thimmappa,

With the combined strength of the sceptic and the saint, eminent Kannada literary-cultural figure Lankesh uncovers the invisible realities of politics and culture in contemporary India in these meditations on life's failures and fulfilments.


The arrogance of the mighty
The failing of the meek
The vanity of the great
The conceit of the saint
To all this a mocking commentary
That tiny bird's twitter
