  Like A Psalm... 

Like a Psalm... is the translation of the Malayalam novel Oru Sankeertanam Pole by the renowned novelist Perumpadavam Sreedharan, based on the events of a crucial month in Fyodor Dostoevsky’s life, unfolding in sixteen chapters. He is tricked by the publisher Stellovsky into signing a contract that would have compelled him to forfeit the royalties of all his works if he hadn’t completed a novel and handed it over in one month’s time. As he finds it impossible to finish actually writing the novel, The Gambler, in the prescribed time, he employs the twenty-year-old Anna as his stenographer. Dostoevsky, a hard drinking gambler and a pathetic epileptic, is quite a handful for the young Anna. Finally, she learns to love the writer unconditionally, to the point of deciding to marry him; her presence of mind saves the situation. Like a Psalm... has made publishing history in Malayalam – it has run into more than eighty editions till date, since its publication 24 years ago in 1993, with more than 2,50,000 copies sold, which is a record in Malayalam literature. The novel has won several prestigious awards, and has been praised by critics, scholars and eminent personalities.

  Hope Express : Tomorrow is a New Day 

What is common to a decrepit old tenement in Central Mumbai undergoing redevelopment, a disillusioned retired trade unionist mill worker Ganpatrao Padwal and his son Raghu Padwal? Hope Express takes you through the sights and smells of the maximum city sometimes through Raghu and his petty news world of crime, scandal and gossip and sometimes through the chawl and its motley characters. Narrated with smells of fried Bombay duck, sounds of ‘fast underarm’ cricket tournaments and sights of a working class Mumbai that is fast fading away, Hope Express is an authentic story of that fast changing landscape in the twenty first century Mumbai.

  A Cup of Coffee with a Bunch of Tales 

Yet another venture from the story teller of north Malabar. Most of these tales are set in Kalloor, which had been the setting for the author’s debut novel Monsoons in Malabar. While some among these fourteen stories discuss surrealistic experiences of the central characters, a few harp on struggles for existence in a heartless world. Some deal with the fallout of sensual relations outside the gambit of matrimony. A few rely on folklore and mythology to punctuate the thematic drift of the narratives.

  Meghnaadbadh Kabya : An illustrated bilingual poetic presentation of the classic epic in Bengali and English 

This is an illustrated bilingual poetic presentation in Bengali and translation in English of the great epic “Meghnaadbadh Kabya” by one of the greatest of Bengali poets, Michael Madhusudan Dutt.

Based on the epic Ramayana by Valmiki, the story revolves round the cowardly slaying of unarmed Meghnaad by Lakshmana, the brother of Rama, whose wife, Sita had been abducted by Ravana, the Rakshasa King of Lanka and the father of Meghnaad. The epic opens with Ravana being devastated at the fall of Rakshasa Prince Birbahu in the hands of Rama, the Prince of Ayodhya, whose invading army was gradually laying the valour of Lanka to waste. The story unfurls along the course of this Great War and ends in a heart rending scene of the last rites of Meghnaad and his wife Pramila, who entered her husband’s pyre. It is a complete epic in nine Cantos. Unlike the popular versions of the Ramayana, Meghnaad is depicted here as a patriot, a loving husband and a dutiful son. The protagonist is Ravana, painted as a villain in the Ramayana, but shown here to be a responsible, valiant king. The influence of western, especially Greek classical epics is evident in this epic poem by Michael Madhusduan Dutt.
