About this book

Raman Pillai's writings. Krishna Pillai and Prof. Anandakuttan Nair [iv] state that the novel comprises three plots, among which the first one is the political theme about the power struggle between Marthanda Varma and opponents, the second is the romance of Ananthapadmanabhan and Parukutty, and the third is the tragedy of Subhadra.

In its illusoriness and in its unaccountabilit y t o the colonial hist ory, Raman Pillai's Travancore was actually representing the inferiorit y of the very subjugat ion t hat he was being silent about.

His concept ion and use of novel w as root ed in it s capacity as a medium that could contain t his unspeakable polit ics as w ell.

In this manner, t hrough his novels, Raman Pillai could dodge and forget t he violence, t he injust ices and unethicality of t he state of Travancore and imagine that he could conquer the inferiority inst illed by colonialism by 3 staying close t o t he general socio-cultural polit ics of nation.

On t he other hand S. K Pot t ekad and ThakazhiSivasankara Pillai, tw o prominent novelist s w ho follow ed Raman Pillai's generation, did not have these conflict s w hile w rit ing t heir novels.

They also reinvent ed count er- national hist ories, albeit through different narrat ives that sought to overcome t he garrulousness of nationalist politics through t he ironical interpolat ion of the hist ories of the small locales desham. An aesthet ic met hodology root ed in t he w rit ing of regional hist ories as against t he grand narrat ives of nat ion building that was evident in Pott ekad was thus most ly overlooked.

This takes us t o t he next problem in t he ambivalence bet w een nation and the locale in regional narrat ives. One such contradiction had got exemplified and eternalized t hrough O. The narrat ive of Khasak did capture t he nuances of the rural village life of Kerala in t he fift ies t hat w ere caught in t he crossroads w ithin t he ambivalences betw een grant and lit t le tradit ions. What Vijayan drew w it h his adeptness at portrayal w ere rather caricatures of t he others as looked at by Ravi.

He alienated them as lit t le comic sket ches of people, packaged for t he t aste of every urban gaze. Even when view ed from t he perspective of post colonial modernity, t here is inherent in t his gaze, a relief and distancing from the subjects that are looked at.

Ravi of Khasak was the colonizer and his domineering sexuality, his mock dispassion, his condescending urge t o uplift t he subalt ern people t hrough educat ion and his veiled violence made him a perfect authorit arian of a colonized land. The only social rebel of Khasak, Naijamali gets beaten by Ravi and he is found to rebel against and later succumb t o t he 'pett y capit alist ' and cow ed down by the police tort ure.

On t he contrary, there is a line in Pot tekad , which looks to have sprung out from t he deep guilt of having seen t he other side of the gaze. Evident in t hose lines are the honesty, t he remorse, humilit y and doubt at being alienat ed. M any new w rit ers are familiar w ith t hese point s of realizat ion, the dilemmas of ret rieving and t he t rials of regional hist ories in t heir narratives. Tw o point s are notable here.

They know t hat hist ory is flux, that history is the int erpretat ions of history and t hat there is no universally accepted object ive history. And this is w hat leads t hem t o w rit e regional hist orical narrat ives of t heir generat ion in that unabashedly subjective mode.

First of all, t he novel nails down caste as a scathing reality, a cat egory that cannot be ignored in any at tempt of a dialogue w it h history. A man in the village had once been subject ed t o t he very cruel form of t ortuous death by the st at e for some crime t hat w e get no hint of.

The death is macabre, and its gruesome detail blends into t he plot, surfacing again and again, evidently dismantling t he t emporal sequence, as if to put t o rest any doubt regarding the certaint ies about the recurring and resurfacing violence in hist ories t hat the novel is primarily concerned w it h. The visual of this hard punishment is hung from a nail in t he plot and keeps oscillating like a pendulum over every t urn of violence that it takes.

It sw ays over the reading like a reminder about the profound urgency that death brings over t rivialized lives.

When death is rendered as punishment , it is not t he individual or the family t hat experiences it , but the locale, t he desham itself. It becomes the death of the region and as such it s putrid st ench stays over t he region for generat ions to come.

The part icular punishment referred t o involved being tightly bound inside an iron cage and hung from a very high tree, t o be left t heir to die in inches, of hunger, t hirst and absolute physical stasis.

The vict im w ould hang for days, unable t o move a finger, his muscles tight ened by t he bars of the cage, sleepless and w ithout food and wat er and w it h a constant sense of t he imminent death, shift ing across and beyond the limit s of endurance. While t his absolutely inhuman punishment saw most vict ims succumbing to death in ten days, t he charact er in question endured it for a long st ret ch of t w ent y seven days. His w ill t o sustain left t he onlookers of his death astounded.

Int erest ingly, he even surprises t he eagle t hat t urned up on the ninth day as usual to lay its claim on his dead carcass. M ore so, he even must ered up the st rength of his entire body t o stave off t he bird by shout ing an expletive at it.

The st ory of t he region t hus began from him. The plot is decisively silent about t he crime of Ayyapillai t hat made him deserve t his ordeal. It could have been for anything t hat displeased the king. When the sovereign was endow ed w it h divinit y, it w as common t o regard anyt hing that displeased the king as sin. This is t he delirious chant t hat the vict im continuously let s out while resisting t he scavenger t hat pries on his decaying body.

It invokes a Buddhist chant of t he ancient Lamoist t radition utt ered by t he Lamas as part of a rit ual that initiates them to Buddhist asceticism. Drape the whit e rob and become a devot ee. Learn the five rules. Panchasiksha is deeply root ed t o the Buddhism and t hus the chant of Ayyappillai strongly suggests that his crime could be somet hing relat ed to religion or part of some larger religious conflict during t he era when sin and crime w ere the w hims of the sovereign.

M ay be his courage in facing death came out of his convict ion of righteousness. His defiance was a reminder that t he law of the king could not subjugate his w ill to subject himself to another virtue. By challenging the authorit y of the sovereign from inside the cage, Ayyapillai w as show ing his grit and unquenchable desire for freedom.

The possibilit y that Ayyapillai died as a martyr for religious freedom comes subt ly alive in the plot of the novel, in t he questions it raises about religion and cast e.

There is no direct reference t o t he suppressed history of Buddhism in Kerala anyw here in the novel ot her than t his chant. Though not neatly placed into the wat er t ight compart ment s of purusharthas in t heir order, t hroughout t heir lives t he characters fall in and out of t he grips of t hese cat egories of desire. In a way t he purusharthas are rendered here as a scale borrow ed from religion t o measure life so t hat the scale it self is subject ed t o a rigorous critique.

C. V. Raman Pillai

The hierarchy t hat t he scale imposes, it s rigid logics, t he entire cast e syst em that is built upon it s t heology and everything that t he scale imposes is brought to scrut iny by a simple sket ching of an ordinary life coping w it hin its periphery. Thus even when it is religious in a part icular way and even when it is not blatant about the criticism of religion, the novel raises very substant ial challenges t o religion it self as a scale of life.

Also permeating the novel, is a st rong critique of a religion sans spirit ualit y. There is also an undercurrent of a communit arian critique of liberal individualism. Every other disciplinary hold of system s on individuals, be it slavery, feudalism or capitalism or post capitalist w orld of t oday, fundamentally is pat riarchal and hostile t o ot her genders.

Every int erpretat ion of freedom w ithin these system s is primarily and essent ially only t he freedom of t he male sex. Bot h his mother and Narapillai live a life resplendent w ith irredeemable cast ist hatred. Tachanakkara was in the t w entieth cent ury by then and much wat er had flown by t he river, it had seen democracy, known human right s and been part of the struggles against caste domination.

It had seen Gandhi and Sreenarayana Guru. But everything in Thachanakkara w as still overdetermined by caste. Narapillai saw t he entire w orld through cast ist spect rum. He upheld his Sudra self w ith pride and rebuked Gandhi for visiting Sreenarayana Guru. Ironically in his first night he was t aken aback by his w ife w ho confessed to him t hat she liked him for his first name, Narayanan t hat he shared w ith the Guru who had recent ly passed away.

This w as the beginning. His son and son-in-law turn out t o be communist s, his son marries an Ezhava w oman while grandson marries a Christian.

But Narapillai remains as the personificat ion of the rott en undercurrent of cast e in the changing postcolonial Kerala, as the patriarch who refuses to change.Paul mentions that author depicts peculiar skill in presenting minute emotions of human mind, in the novel.

Balakrishnan Nair notes that the release of novel was celebrated like a literary festival at Trivandrum. While t his absolutely inhuman punishment saw most vict ims succumbing to death in ten days, t he charact er in question endured it for a long st ret ch of t w ent y seven days.
