Known for his patronage of the arts, Narasimha Pallavan took great interest in creating the remarkable shore town of Mamallapuram, with its famous Shore temple and the monolithic Rathas. He restored to Hinduism its elements of love and compassion. He succeeded in wiping out the extremist cult of Saivism, which believed in human sacrifice. In Parthiban Kanavu these historic facts are woven around a remarkable narrative, filled with thrill, suspense and romance.

It just a sequel to that novel and pre-sequel to "ponniyin selvan".

But i read these books in reverse order. Still i enjoyed it. Parthiban Kanavu brings to life the glory of Tamil civilization. The description of the events cuts across both royal life style and the life style of the common man. The book is really awesome and very very delighting. There are very decent twist and turns you can enjoy reading till end.

The pace My suggestion is first read "sivagamiyin sabatham" then read this novel. The pace in which the story travels is fantastic. Walk the streets of Mamallapuram, get drenched in the rains of the forests, travel on the boats across Cauvery, and see the statesmanship of the Kings. Betrayal, love, suspense, dedication, intelligence, bravery.

Its quite amazing how the author weaves his characters- true and fiction. I can't stop pondering over the fact that today we have such popular novels like lord of the rings, harry potter and game of thrones and amazing on screen adaptations of these too.

I imagine how grand it would be if someone got Kalki's writings on screen. Such an enchanting story entwined with real history would be a delight to see on screen!

I technically have the ability to read Tamil. But even on my best days,i don't think i could manage a page of Tamil prose without making my brain go bonkers.

Obviously, i am not proud of this as Tamil is my mother tongue and I have studied it as my second language for a decent period of time. My reading habit started courtesy random books available at home. It is a little surprising that i have to slave over a passage of Tamil when both my parents read quite a bit of Tamil literature and we had ton I technically have the ability to read Tamil.

It is a little surprising that i have to slave over a passage of Tamil when both my parents read quite a bit of Tamil literature and we had tonnes to Tamil novels at home.

I had bought an English translation of "Parthiban's Kanavu",a very famous Tamil historical novel sometime last year and promptly forgot about it. A few days back, i decided to read something different and picked up the book. I must say the book has opened several doors for me. For one,i realized that translations and transliterations cannot do complete justice to the original. The lushness of words and the original import gets lost often times. Coming back to Parthiban's dream, the Tamil version was translated by a 15 year old girl,Nirupama Raghavan.

Commendable effort,i must say. The translation is not lucious enough when it comes to the choice of words,but despite the simplistic writing,the plot keeps you immersed in it at all times. Parthiban is a Chola king. His empire is heavily marginalized with the Pandiyas,Cheras and Pallavas pressing into his territory from all directions. Pallava ruler,Mamalla Narasimha Chakravarti is the most dominant king in the southern lands and makes all other rulers pay tax to him.

Parthiban refuses to pay up and decides to go into a war against the Chakravarti ,knowing very well that his troops are nowhere comparable to the Pallava army. Before marching into the battle ground,Parthiban unveils his dream Chola kingdom becoming the strongest in the region to his son ,Vikraman. Vikraman is but a boy at his stage ,but decides to make his father's dream a reality.

Parthiban goes into war and gets killed. However,before he dies ,a Shivanadiyar Shaivite devotee promises to help Vikraman realise his father's goal. The rest of the story is about how Vikraman realises Parthiban's dream. He is aided in his quest by several people like Ponna,a boatman,his wife,Valli ,Siruthondar and the mystery Shivanadiyar.

Vikrama has a love interest as well-Kuntavi,who is the daughter of the Chakravarti. And a bunch of villains to foil Vikraman's resolve. The main supense aspect is "supposed"to be the identity of Shivanadiyar.

However,the narrative gives you enough clues early on to figure out who he is. So that is not exactly too surprising when at the end of pages the Shivanadiyar reveals himself. I have no clue whether the subtelity got lost in the translation or whether Kalki's work is liberal with the clues too.

Its a highly entertaining read that rarely sags and almost every page has something wild and racy happening. People who like stories of kings and conquests will definitely like this. I am a history junkie,so i am not really surprised that i liked the book despite the very ordinary language.

But one can't deny the fact that the abridged translation is neat and edited tautly. Overall good read. Feb 28, Umesh Kesavan rated it it was amazing Shelves: tamil , classics , novels , fiction.

For those who wish to enjoy Kalki's genius yet do not have the patience for " Ponniyin Selvan" , this is a smart shortcut!

Parthiban Kanavu is that book that you start reading as a classic and find a masala movie in it! My first tamil read in sometime and was suitably rewarded for sticking to my long pending list of authors i wanted to read.
