S L ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ನಾನು…

Posted on: June 24, 2008

ಸುಮಾರು ಕನ್ನಡ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳನ್ನ ಓದುತ್ತಿರುತ್ತೇನೆ, ತೇಜಸ್ವಿ, ಬಿ.ಜಿ.ಎಲ್ ಸ್ವಾಮಿ, ಸುನಂದಮ್ಮ, ಯಂಡಮೂರಿ ಹೀಗೆ… ಹಾಗೆ Novel based ಕನ್ನಡ ಸಿನಿಮಾಗಳನ್ನು ನೋಡುತ್ತಿರುತ್ತೇನೆ ಆಗಾಗ.

ಓದುಗ ಮಿತ್ರರು S L ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರ ಕ್ರಿತಿಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಮಾತಾಡುತ್ತಿದ್ದರೆ, ನನಗೆ ನನ್ನ views  ಹೇಳಲು ಒಂದು ಕಾಸಿನಷ್ಟು ವಿಷಯವಿರುವುದಿಲ್ಲ.. ಏಕೆಂದರೆ ನಾನವರ ಒಂದೂ ಪುಸ್ತಕವನ್ನು ಇದುವರೆಗೆ ಪೂರ್ತಿಯಾಗಿ ಓದಿಲ್ಲ. ಅಯ್ಯೋ ಕನ್ನಡತಿ ಯಾಗಿ ಜನ್ಮ ಪಡೆದಿದ್ದೆ waste ಅನ್ನೋ ಅಷ್ಟು ಬೈಗುಳವನ್ನು ಸ್ವೀಕರಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಮೊನ್ನೆ ಸುವರ್ಣ ಚಾನಲ್ ನಲ್ಲಿ ಗಿರೀಶ್ ಕಾಸರವಳ್ಳಿ ಯವರು ನಿರ್ದೇಶಿಸಿರುವ “ನಾಯಿ ನೆರಳು” ಚಿತ್ರ ಬರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು.. ನೋಡಿ ಬಹಳ ಖುಶಿಯಾಯ್ತು. ಹೀಗೆ ಎಲ್ಲರೊಡನೆ ಚರ್ಚಿಸುತ್ತಿರುವಾಗ ಅವರ literary works ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಾ, ಅವರ ಪುಸ್ತಕ ಓದಿಸುವಂತೆ ಸೂಚಿಸಿದರು. ಸುಮಾರು ೨೦ ವರ್ಷ್ದವಳಿದ್ದಾಗ ಅವರ ಪರ್ವ ಪುಸ್ತಕವನ್ನು ಓದಲು ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸಿದ್ದೆ, ಮೊದಲು ೪ ಪುಟ ಓದುವಷ್ಟರಲ್ಲೆ interest ಹೋಗಿತ್ತು.

ಯಾರೋ ಎಲ್ಲೊ ಹೇಳಿದ ನೆನಪು.. ನೀನೆನಾದರು ಹೊಸ ರುಚಿ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸಬೇಕಾದ್ರೆ ಅದನ್ನು ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿರುವ ಕಡೆ ಪ್ರಯತ್ನಿಸು, ಒಮ್ಮೆ ಅದರ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಚೆನಾಗಿಲ್ಲವೆಂಬ ಆಲೋಚನೆ ಬಂದರೆ, ಇನ್ನೆಂದೂ ಸಹ ಅದರ ನಿಜವಾದ ಸವಿಯನ್ನು ಸವಿಯಲಾರೆ ಅನ್ನೋ ಮಾತು.. ನಾನು ಒಂದಾದರು S L Byrappa ನವರ ಪುಸ್ತಕವನ್ನು ಓದೋಣ ವೆಂದು ಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತಿದೇನೆ. ಮೊದಲಿಗೆ ಯಾವ ಪುಸ್ತಕ ಓದಿದರೆ ಚೆನ್ನ? ದಯವಿಟ್ಟು ತಿಳಿಸಿ. ಹಾಗೆ ಅವರ ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ನಿಮ್ಮ ಅಬಿಪ್ರಾಯ, ಅಬಿರುಚಿಯನ್ನು ಬರೆಯಿರಿ.

I started reading with SLB’s books with “Dharmashree”. Actually it was a boon in disguise, if I had started of with some other heavy novel, may be I would have discontinued. After that superb “Dharmashree”, I have read most of them, bu the recent ones I have read most of them. Gruhabanga I would have read many times. And it is not Dhathu, it is Dhatu( “Tha” alla “Ta”)🙂

@Veena , now I think you know my suggestion on which book to start with🙂

19. ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ (TABBALIYU NEENAADE MAGANE)

Really very nice novel,very interesting story about punyakoti and kaalingegoda nice heart touching..

One of the super novel … and novel is carries the Indian culture and believes about tradition.

Veena, it’s never too late! I have read most books from the above list. But one which has stayed in my memory is that of Parva – it’s always contemporary. Other novels – one might feel not relevant now but it certainly throws light on the life ‘at that point in time’. You can start with vamsha vriksha – it’s interesting. Parva according to me is greatest of his works. I read somewhere that he is most translated author among Indian writers. His book Parva is very popular among hindi, marathi and bengali readers. There’s English translation of this book too – which I generally gift to non-kannadiga book lovers. They’ve all liked it. Once you read Parva, your view on hindu mythology would change🙂 Happy reading. I have some of his books. You can take them from me sometime when you’re back in Bangalore.

It should be:
೪. ದಾಟು
೧೬. ಧರ್ಮಶ್ರೀ

Saartha could be included in the list and being a TNS fan “Mathadhana” is left out🙂

ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರ “ಗೃಹಭಂಗ” ಅಥವ “ಧರ್ಮಶ್ರೀ” ಕಾದಂಬರಿಗಳಿಂದ ಓದಲು ಶುಋಮಾಡಿ, ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರನ್ನು ನನಗೆ ಪರಿಚಯಿಸಿದ ಮೊದಲ ಕೃತಿ “ಗೃಹಭಂಗ” ..🙂
ನಿಮ್ಮ ಲಿಸ್ಟಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೆದಿರುವ ಅವರ ಕಾದಂಬರಿಗಳ ಹೆಸರು ತಪ್ಪಿದೆ ನೋಡಿ ೪. ಧಾತು (DHAATU) ಅದು” ಧಾಟು” ಆದಬೇಕು ಮತ್ತೆ ಧಮರ್ಷಿ(DHARMHARSEE ) “ಧರ್ಮಶ್ರೀ” ಆಗಬೇಕು.

* ಸಾರ್ಥ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ತಂತು – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ಮತದಾನ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ಭಿತ್ತಿ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ವಂಶವೃಕ್ಷ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ಭೀಮಕಾಯ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

I have ordered Dharmashree (highly recommended by many people) and also “Parva” (someone recommended). can anyone give a brief review of PARVA, please? Is it as good as Dahrmashree? Also, how easy it is to follow Sri. SLB’s language?

I vaguely remember some fairly harsh cristicism (by many eminent writers such as URA, Girish K etc) of his work, AAVARANA. Has any of you read AAVARANA? If so, how is it?

A little digression: The book YAYATI by Girish K is supposed to be a great work (although many people has criticised it for misrepresenting facts). Where can I buy the KANNADA version of YAYATI? Sapna does not have it. I am looking for an ONLINE store.

well the class of SLB can never be compared with that of URA and karnad. Lot of research goes behind SLB’s work, in AAVARANA there are harsh realities of our gone by past, which none of the modern litereary works never dared to show to the society. But SLB work is highly commendable, instead of going by critisicm i advice you to taste the very truth by reading AAVARANA. There are people who believe in “SIDDHI=work” and there are people who beleive in “PRASIDDHI=fame”. SLB belongs to the first class whereas URA and Karnad types belong to Second class. Go ahead and read AAVARANA

it is true… to say truth it needs guts… only SLB is having that…
SLB novels not only reads us , it gives us the reality of life and reality of history and become guide to our real life. People who loves SLB inside (like OSHO) also criticizes out side just bcz to identify themselves. It needs a lot of lot of Guts to accept real facts for us.

I am in middle of AAVARANA, very interesting and proud to know many more reality of History by SLB. Hats off!!!

Check this for review of Parva: http://www.mouthshut.com/review/Parva_-_S.L.Bhyrappa-49489-1.html
Parva I had read when I was in highschool, I read in college, I read when I started working – and everytime it seems so new and all the more relevant.

For other novels of SLB + Parva:http://aparnack.blogspot.com/2006_04_01_archive.html
for reviews on SLB’s novels.

Aavarana is the most controversial of Bhairappa’s works. If you enjoy reading Pratap Simha’s writing on Muslims – you would enjoy reading this! But if you belong to U R Anantamurty’s school of thought you would hate aavarana to the core🙂

I am not sure of online, but if you want a good book store for kannada books, it is “Ankita prakashana” on Gandhi Bazaar road, Bangalore.

Bheemakaaya and Dharmashree are Bhyrappa’s early write-ups. Author has suggested so many times that they are not great pieces but once you read them, you will find how modest bhyrappa is.

VNS: Dharmashree is definitely good read, but parva is a master piece. This is the best novel in whole of kannada literature. If parva has not got Gnanapeetha award, It means that, Gnanapeetha is not worth it.

SLB’s language is rather pretty simple, but if you are an avid reader of Saisute, Usha Navaratnaram, SLB’s language might look very tough.

On criticism, you are right, all the other ass-hole writers, literary pimps suggested ‘Aavarana’ as bullshit!. Compared to other works of bhyrappa, this was not a great piece of work. If you have read Kushwanth singh’s ‘Dilli’, you may not appreciate much about ‘Aavarana’. But it was a good read to me.

Veena: Take any book of bhyrappa, all his books are printed in last page of the novel in the chronological order. If you have difficulty in finding, I will add the list.

Very interesting discussion. Bhairappa, I started reading his books an year ago, with Aavarana and how they got me hooked …. I dont know and I cant explain. I have read five of his novels since then, all are master pieces. I feel Thabbaliyu neenade magane has been one of the best novels I have read so far or heard of in any language!

I need to read more books of him. Yes, I agree with Girish that if Bhairappa has not Gyaanpeeth award, then the award is the loser, not the writer. In Kannada today, if there is anyone worth this award, then it should be Bhairappa. I am sure like the other legends, DVG, PuTiNa, K S Na, Adiga and others, Bhairappa may go awardless, nevertheless Kannadigas know what a gem of a writer he is and how they love his works. Veena thanks for this article.

very true..i agree..its a disgrace that many people’s view is not accepted by few people’s ego..

i am proud to be a kannadiga that we have such great writers.

Yes, if DVG who gave us a literary masterpiece such as “ಮ೦ಕುತಿಮ್ಮನ ಕಗ್ಗ” (ಕನ್ನಡದ ’ಭಗವದ್ಗೀತೆ’) does not get an award, it only means that such an award is too SMALL to really honour such great personalities. Even Mahatma Gandhiji went awardless (all awards were too small to measure his greatness)..so PUTINA, DVG and and some others are in good company!!!

Wow! I am overwhelmed by the responses and the information given here. Techies Techies anthaare aadre ishtondu kannada pustaka prema, olle kannada literature group iddha haage ide.

@ Anand, Thanks for the corrections and suggestions. Dharmashree seems to be a good pick. Gubbachi and Girish’s comments endorse it too. I remember watching another ETV serial on Grihabhanga, where MaaLavika (Madhavi paTel fame) and Achyuta Rao were the main cast. It was marvellous though I couldn’t watch all the episodes.

@VNS, Thanks for the title. Have added it. Please check Radhika’s comment. Totalkannada might be of some help. I have heard lot about “Ankita prakashana”. And also there is one in Nrupathunga road, good kannada books are available there. I think the book shop belongs to kannada raastrothaana parishat …

@Radhika, Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like you are an avid reader of SLB’s literary works. My GOD, reading Parva would change my perception about Hindu mythology? It sounds revolutionary.. I would definitely read it, but after a while. Great to know that his books are translated in many other languages.. Its great that others also get to read his great works language not being a barrier … Amele, Yulopbooks anno link kooDa nodi. SJ omme nanage kalsiddru

@Gubbachi, Thanks for the comment. Your blog name sounds very cute.!
I have corrected the errors and have added all the names that you listed in the comment.

@Girish, Great to see your comment here. Being a great fan of byrappa you have give straight forward comments.. I miss your Radio program bookworm, BTW.. did you talk about any of the SLB’s book there? as the purpose of the radio program was to introduce new/good books … I was remembering that book from Maxim Gorki – “The Mother” when I was watching a TV program about the newly released movie(Baragur ramachandrappa) Taayi (PramiLa Joshai in Lead role).

@Srik, I remember reading almost the same comment on DS’s blog when he wrote something about AavaraNa🙂 I know I know!! Thanks for coming here in the middle of your busy schedules and tight deadlines at work!

@VNS, I think we need to have a separate post to discuss on DVG’s mankutimmana kagga. I keep hearing it atleast once in 6 months. Specially those 7 Audio casettes from Swamy Chimayananda (I am searching for the same in CD but haven’t been able to get it).. Awesome, I enjoy it more than any other “Chintane” type of books!
When I hear them, I remember that program in AkashaVaaNi which used to come in the early morning, they used to talk about such pearls about life.

ಒಳ್ಳೇ ಪ್ರಶ್ನೆ. ನನ್ನದೂ ಒಂದು ಕೊಸರು ಇರಲಿ ಅಂತ ಹೇಳಿಬಿಡುವೆ🙂

ಮೊದಲಿಗೆ ಆರಂಭಿಸಲು ಯಾವುದು ಒಳ್ಳೆಯದು? ನಾನು ಬಹುಶಃ ವಂಶವೃಕ್ಷ, ಧಮ್ರಶ್ರೀ ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ ಅಥವಾ ಪರ್ವ ಇವುಗಳಲ್ಲೊಂದನ್ನು ಓದಿ ಎಂದು ಹೇಳುವೆ.

ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರ ಯಾವುದೇ ಕಾದಂಬರಿಯನ್ನು ಓದಲು ಮೊದಲ ೨೦-೨೫ ಪುಟಗಳು ತುಂಬಾ ಮುಖ್ಯ. ಅಷ್ಟು ಹೊತ್ತು ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ಆಸಕ್ತಿ ಬರದಿದ್ದರೂ ಬಿಡದೆ ಓದಿ. ಆಮೇಲೆ ಪುಸ್ತಕವನ್ನು ಕೆಳಗಿಡಲೂ ಆಗವುದಿಲ್ಲ. ( ಇಪ್ಪತ್ತು ವರ್ಷದ ಹಿಂದೆ ಧರ್ಮಶ್ರೀ ಯನ್ನು ರಾತ್ರೋರಾತ್ರಿ ಓದಿದ ನೆನಪಾಯಿತು).

ನೀವು ಓದಲೇಬೇಕಾದವು: ಈ ಮೇಲಿನ ನಾಲ್ಕು, ಮತ್ತೆ ನಾಯಿನೆರಳು, ಗೃಹಭಂಗ, ಸಾರ್ಥ, ದಾಟು, ಮಂದ್ರ. ಮತ್ತು ತಂತು.

ಇನ್ನು ಓದಲು ಪರವಾಗಿಲ್ಲ ಅನ್ನೋವು : ಆವರಣ, ಅನ್ವೇಷಣ, ನಿರಾಕರಣ, ಗ್ರಹಣ, ಮತದಾನ

ನನ್ನ ಮಟ್ಟಿಗೆ ತೀರಾ ಸುಮಾರು ಅನ್ನೋವು: ದೂರಸರಿದರು, ಜಲಪಾತ, ಅಂಚು(ಇದಂತೂ ಓದುವಾಗ ತಲೆಕೆಟ್ಟು ಹೋಯ್ತು- ಆದರೂ ಕೆಳಗಿಡದೇ ಇರುವಹಾಗೆ ಓದಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳುತ್ತೆ)

ಇನ್ನು ನೆಲೆ, ಸಾಕ್ಷಿ ಇವೆರಡು ಓದಿಲ್ಲ, (ಅಥವಾ ನೆನಪಿಲ್ಲ).

ಕೊನೆಯ ಕಿವಿಮಾತು: ಗೃಹಭಂಗವನ್ನು ಓದಿದಮೇಲೆ ಭಿತ್ತಿ ಓದಲೇಬೇಕಿಲ್ಲ🙂

ಕೊನೆಯ ಕೊಸರು:

ಹೊಸ ಓದುಗರಿಗೆ, ಗಾತ್ರದ ಭಯವೂ ಇರೋದ್ರಿಂದ, ಮೊತ್ತ ಮೊದಲ ಓದಿಗೆ ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ ವಾಸಿ. ನಾನು ಹೇಳಿದ ಬೇರೆ ಮೂರಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಚಿಕ್ಕದಾಗಿದೆ ಗಾತ್ರದಲ್ಲಿ.

@Veena, so you have lot of books to read now! Ask people for suggestions and you would get them in plenty – there’s so much joy to share what one knows isn’t it?
Best way to make time for reading is to travel in office cab🙂.

By the way, I have mankutimmana kagga’s CD (Chinmaya mission) – I can make a copy for you sometime.

But somehow, I always prefer to read mankutimmana kagga than listenting to the discourse🙂

@Ananad, I heard from the shopkeeper in vijayanagar that there is case in court about the rights to sell the CD – not sure how far it is true. So just out of goodwill that he said he is giving it (I’m a regular visitor to his shop and he gives discount on CD’s🙂 ) . But I can certainly burn the CD and give it – but how is the question!

I have Manktimmana Kagga soft copy, if you want i will send download link

hi.

Thanks,

@Neelanjana, Thanks for the tip about holding on first 20-25 pages! True many a times, here is when we loose interest to read the book! I remember watching that movie Tabbali neenade magane long back (That guy who have done in Pallavi Anupallavi (laxmi’s ex-husband) is in lead role in the movie TNM).

@Radhika, True.. I am grateful to all you guys for giving me plenty of inputs. Right, the good time is to read in office bus. Generally I enjoy observing the life outside windows.. Specially I get to see lot of happenings out the world fun at time, jagaLa and the traffic light jumpers idella.. and also I take out some time to attend all the missed calls during my journey. But last year I drove to office so no chance of reading at all.. Nodbeku eega office join aadmele hege antha..

Thats great to hear about the CD.. but yaake court case? noDoNa .. aadashtu original ge try maaDoNa.. copy option sadhyakke beDa..🙂

@Anand, Once I was searching in google, got the discourse in realplayer format (ram?)..Wonder if this can be copied to CD, it may need some conversion.

दिशा/ದಿಶಾ/DISHA

Its true Disha. I was not at all intrested in literature untill one day I took a book from my brothers’ book shell, just to spend time just like that. I was amazed and deeply fell in love with literature. the book which inspired me towards literature was SLBs’ Saartha. I feel as if SLB is narrating my own life story.

SLB is an all time great and he is one who spends lot of time before he puts them into writing. his master piece parva was carved out after lot of research and no. of visits to places relevant. his novels are simply different from others and you can not run through them you need t o involve and concentrate and read. I have read no. novels of him right from dharmashree, tabbaliu ninade magane, datu, parva to name a few.
veena nevu byrappanavara AVARANA vannu ANAVARANA madiddiri
In my house we had collection of all his novels one time but today not even a sinnle is available thanks to pustaka priyaru ( close to family both relatives & friends) after borrowing for reading it is though book is theirs and they circulate or what they do I am not sure. but books have not come back. One way I think it has spread re reading of Byrappas novels to many so what is our loss is gain fro kannada sahitya but is it is loss to byrappa had they bought and read they would have benefitted.
He is a very simple person and all his books are published by SAhitya Bhandar originally from Hubli (founded by one late Sri Mangalore Govinda RAo a fclose friend of my father) and today they are in bangalore also for last more than 3 decades and all byrappas works have been published by them. byrappa also has stood with them because they are the one who published his early novels once he got fame so many others have offered him lucrative offers but he has stood with them and even today he is with son of the founder. so that shows the commitment and greatness of the person not forgetting the people who have helped him when he needed it badly and stood with them all through.and sahitya bhandara publishes and also sells only kannada books thats is simply great.

I started reading DHRMASHREE (less number of pages compared to PARVA) as my FIRST SLB novel. It is quite interesting. It has so much information. One revelation was the subtle sense of humour that SLB possesses. It shows in many places. I am sold on SLB’s work. Next in line is PARVA. I will follow it up with some of the other “MUST READ” novels.

Thanks everyone for their suggestions.

Veena, it’s a real good move from you to discuss about books. Why not start a page where we can suggest a book to read for a month or something like that? After reading all these comments, I’m feeling like reading all SLB’s books again!

I am not sure of the title of the book….in that the girl wants to marry the boy(very intelligent), but the boy always gives a very hi-fi lecture on compatibility & how their futre will be and so on..and will keep on dodging the girl. SLB has portaryed the “Buddhi jeevi” fantastic, & how they unnecessarily complicate thier life….

can anybody tell me the name of the book….?

I want to read that again.

Regards
Anand

@Anana, Is the story set in Mysore University? I guess it is doorasaridavaru. It’s a story of lost love – the man did not react positively for the woaman’s initiative and the woman remains unmarried all her life.

Thanks Radhika. I guess that is the correct title. I still remember that boy always comes up very so many hi-fi talks on why they cannot marry, etc….she will be fed up with that fellow🙂 while others who are not so called “buddhi jeevis” will get married and lead a happy life.

@Anand, ha ha ha😀 I think buddhi jeevigaLu svalpa practical life inda doora!!!
Those who think from their heart get what they want and those who can only think from their brain end up losing!!

Chill Radhika!
Paapa buddi jeevi galanna yake losers anteera!

Infact, Doora Saridavaru is about few pairs like

Vasantha Rao – Uma
Rama – Prof. Narottama
Rajegowda – His wife
Jagadamba-with her hubby

and some triangulars between

Ananda-Vinutha-Rama
Swami turned teacher – Vinuta’s Sister – Vasan

Bhyrappa was too young while writing this novel. In bhitti (his autobiography) he has revealed that he had few girls in his college life but it was pure friendship with them!!!

I think he has developed Ananda from what he was in this novel.

The charecters of Uma and Vasantha have been brought so nicely to show that, if you get to solve the problems of philosophy: you end up in a soup and your life will be shattered.

Vinutha is a typical girl and plays with Anand, ruins his life, get her life on to the brink and finally dies (Movie style)

Jagadamba is so good friend to many and has very happy ending.

Novel is a good read but very low if you rank bhyrappa’s novels. the best part is that it was written by bhyrappa in his 20’s. when I read it in my teens, it sounded great. after reading other novels and re-reading it again, makes you feel ok.

@ Radhika, Mostly even I have noticed… People with lot of ideologies miss out small pleasures in life spending thoughts resolving other issues…

@Girish, Ha Ha…philosophy does help many times but its hard to apply while dealing with relationships.. we never know if the other person accepts it in the same degree…
and wonder if anybody have taken this script for a movie? Might make a hit movie…

Veena and others,

I guess someone has to forego some pleasures of life for the population at large to benefit.😀

All,

Thanks for the responses and the interactions we had on this post. Well, I have purchased two books of SLB namely Dharmashree and Naayi neraLu. Will start reading now and will post my first feel/views on it.

While discussing with Radhika about SLB’s literary works(or generally books) she said that we can probably write a post which talks about a book which one can recommend giving the gist of the story/insight.

I was thinking that we will give options to write guest post in this regard.. So please let me know if any of you are interested to write a blogpost on a book.. Probably we can write such post per month so that we recommend a book for each month. First, lets restrict this to books in kannada.

Many of you must be knowing the bookworm program on Radio that spoke about books.

ನಾನು “ಪರ್ವ” ಪುಸ್ತಕವನ್ನು ಓದಲು ಶುರುಮಾಡಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಅದನ್ನು ಒ೦ದು ಕಾದ೦ಬರಿಯ ರೀತಿ ಓದಬೇಕೋ ಅಥವಾ ನಮ್ಮ “ಮಹಾಭಾರತ” ದ ಕಥೆಯ೦ತೆ ಓದಬೇಕೋ ಅರ್ಥವಾಗುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ🙂 ಏಕೆ೦ದರೆ, ಆ ಪುಸ್ತಕದಲ್ಲಿ (ಕು೦ತಿಯ ಆತ್ಮಕಥೆ) ಕೊಟ್ಟಿರುವ ಅ೦ಶಗಳು ನಮ್ಮ ನ೦ಬಿಕೆಗೆ (ವ್ಯಾಸರ ಮೂಲ ಕೃತಿ) ಸ್ವಲ್ಪ ವಿರುದ್ಧವಾಗಿವೆ. ಉದಾಹರಣೆಗೆ, ಕರ್ಣ ದೂರ್ವಾಸರ ಮಗನೆ೦ಬ೦ತೆ ಬರೆದಿರುವ ಹಾಗಿದೆ.😀

ಏನೇ ಆದರೂ, ಈ ಕೃತಿಯು ಒ೦ದು ಅದ್ಭುತ ಬರವಣಿಗೆ ಎ೦ಬುದರಲ್ಲಿ ಸ೦ದೇಹವಿಲ್ಲ.

ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರ ಕೃತಿ
“ಗೃಹಭಂಗ”
ಸಾರ್ಥ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ತಂತು – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ಮತದಾನ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ಭಿತ್ತಿ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ವಂಶವೃಕ್ಷ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

*ಭೀಮಕಾಯ – ಎಸ್ ಎಲ್ ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

ವಂಶವೃಕ್ಷ, ದೂರ ಸರಿದರು ಮತ್ತು ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ ಇವನ್ನು ನೀವು ಮೊದಲಿಗೆ ಓದ ಬಹುದು. ಪರ್ವ ಒಂದು ಮೇರು ಕೃತಿ.
ನಾನು ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ ಓದಿದಾಗ ಬರೆದ ಕವನ ಇದು.
** ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನಿನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ **

‘ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನಿನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ’
ಎಂಬ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ ಓದಿದೆನಗೆ|
ಗೋವುಗಳೆಡಗಿನ ಒಲವು ಎನ್ನಲಿ
ನೂರ್ಮಡಿ ಪುಟಿದೆದ್ದಿತು||

‘ಕಾಳಿಂಗ’ಜ್ಜನ ನಿಜ ನಂಬಿಕೆಯು
ಭಾರತ ಜನತೆಯ ಮನದ ಬಿಂಬವು|
ಮೊಮ್ಮಗ ‘ಕಲಿಂಗ್’ ನ ಆಧುನಿಕ ನಿಲುವು
ಸಡಿಲಾದ ನಮ್ಮ ನಂಬಿಕೆಯ ತೋರಿಸುವ ಪಾತ್ರವು||

ಮೂಖ ಮಾತೆ ‘ತಾಯವ್ವ’ನ ನಡೆತೆಯು
ಹೇಳುತಿದೆ ಸನಾತನ ನಂಬಿಕೆಯ ಆಳವನು|
ಅವರಿವರೇಳುವಂತೆ ಗೊಡ್ಡು ಸಂಪ್ರದಾಯವಿದಲ್ಲ
ತಿಳಿಸುತಿದೆ ಭಾರತ ಜನಗಳ ಬದುಕಿನ ರೀತಿಯು||

ಭೈರಪ್ಪನ ನಿಜ ಭಾವ ಸೆಲೆಯು
ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆಯ ಸಾಲಾಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿತ್ತಿರಲು|
ಅಕ್ಷರ ರೂಪದಲಿ ಚಿಗುರೊಡೆದಿರಲು
ಅದನು ಓದಿದ ನಾನು ಮೂಖವಿಸ್ಮಯನು||

ಗೋತಾಯಿಯಡೆಗಿನ ಪಿರಿದಾದ ಪದಪು
ಅದುವೆ ಭಾರತಾಂಬೆಯ ನೆಲದ ಸೊಗಸು
ಮನದಲ್ಲಿ ನೆಚ್ಚು ಇನಿತು ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಗೊಳ್ಳಲು
ಪ್ರೇರಕವಾಹಿತು ಭೈರಪ್ಪನ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆಯು||

ಗೋವಿನೆಡಗಿನ ನಮ್ಮ ಎಣಿಕೆಯು
ಪಾಶ್ಚಿಮಾತ್ಯರಂತೆ ಬದಲಾಗುತಿರಲು|
ಅದರ ತಪ್ಪು ಸರಿಗಳ ಎಚ್ಚರಿಕೆ ನುಡಿಗಳು
ತರ್ಕವಾಗಿ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆಯಲಿ ಮೂಡಿಹವು||

ಗೋವಿಗಳ ಇಂದಿನ ವ್ಯತೆಯ ಕಥೆಯನ್ನು
ಕಣ್ಣಿಗೆ ಕಟ್ಟುವ ರೋಚಕ ನಿರೂಪಣೆಯು|
‘ತಬ್ಬಲಿಯು ನೀನಾದ ಮಗನೆ ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ’ ಸಾರವು
ನೀವು ಓದಿರೆಂಬ ನನ್ನ ಕೋರಿಕೆಯ ಒತ್ತಾಸೆಯು||

ಪದಪು=ಭಕ್ತಿ
ಎಣಿಕೆ=ಭಾವ
ನೆಚ್ಚು= ನಂಬಿಗೆ, ವಿಶ್ವಾಸ
ಇನಿತು= ಸ್ವಲ್ಪವಾದರು

** ಕುಕೂ…

the only book I have ready authored by SLB was Saartha several years ago I borrowed one from my roommate back then. It was a great book – I specially focused on the power of meditation. I wanted to buy few kannada book during my recent bangalore visit, I didn’t get a chance spend more time at the book stores. however, I went to Ankita Pustaka (gandhibazaar) and picked up a bundle of T.P.Kailasam’s stories. I liked the TPK’s books that we had as part of our curriculum in PUC so wanted to get the entire set. I am currently reading “makkaLigskool manelalve” in that set.
Anybody read TPKailasam’s books?

@Veena, “we can write such post per month and we recommend a book for each month” –> I like this idea🙂

Hi there.

Lately, I read almost all works of Kailasam. Like his wit especially. ‘Poli Kitti’ is moving. ‘Amavra Ganda’ is fun. ‘Tollu Gatti’ is ok and it is with this that he revolutionised Kannada drama. ‘Soole’ is a little serious and good work. Well, but what suprised me ( and what hooked me ) is his English works, I knew he studied in Oxford, but still his English mastery is incredible. They are first-class. I recommend you to read “Purpose”, which is a beautiful rendering of Arjuna-Ekalavya encounter, “Bhramin’s Curse”, which is a heart-wrenching story of Karna, “Fulfilment”, a dialogue between Krishna and Ekalavya. And his poems. He writes like a native speaker and even surpasses them!

Give me a shout if you like to carry on this.

@Ram,

I remember that Makkalige school Manelalve alias Poli kiTTi and the characted KiTTi is most remembered one alva? Almost 13 years back I read it in my PU curriculum so don’t really remember that so clearly.

So as a start, probably you can write on TPK’s this book and recommend it to other book lovers. TPK has lot of contributions to the kannada literature.. I have only 2 book of his. ToLLu gaTTi and one more which I am unable to recall.
Also offlate I wanted to go to a play based on his write up Huttadalli hutta. Its still a plan🙂

At Ankita Pusthaka(GandhiBazaar), “Kailasam Kannada Natakagalu” anta ondh book ide. Adralli TPK ravara ella natakagalu onde kade labhyavide. Adhbutavada pusthaka adu.

@swamy, tumba oLLe kavana. adanna artha maadkoLLokke naanu innu Odbeku sumaar kannada pustakagaLanna. Heege bareyuttiri.

NIkarana odiddira yaradru S.L Byrappa avardu…????

Nirakarana odiddira yaradru S.L Byrappa avardu…????

What is the novel “Tantu” about?
I have read all novels of Byrappa except Tantu and Mandra. One thing I like from Byrappa is, once you finish reading the novel, you try to map yourself with one of the characteristics of the novel. He doesn’t give you a definite end to his novels. Once the reader finishes the novel, he will automatically think about end.

Hi Ranganath.

Just now I finished Tantu. I lived with all characters, I experienced. It enraged me, it would give me hope only to shatter it in next moment, it disconcerted me. Very ambitious novel. Similar to “War and Peace” by Tolstoy in its breadth and scope. So a little tough going. A marathon. Well, here’s a accurate summary of it I found somewhere:
In this epic novel, Bhyrappa examines the very fibre of contemporary Indian life – social, political and psychological – basically in terms of post- independence, post-Gandhian scene. It is panoramic in scope, moving as it does from Bangalore a small village near Channarayapattana, to Mysore, to Banaras and Delhi. Police brutality, goondaism at the village level, the phoney five-star hotel culture, the theft of art objects and smuggling them out of the country, betraying a great heritage for monetary benefit by mercenaries – thus the novel progresses relentlessly. The ubiquitous corruption, bribery and nepotism in high places as well as in low places is portrayed with such absolute candour and honesty that the steady erosion of traditional values and the rank philistinism that has enveloped the present day life is shown as eating away the very moral fibre of India today. The range of characters, entirely credible is incredible and astonishingly comprehensive – the true Gandhian idealist, who, in spite of all odds holds on to his ideals an honest and uncompromising journalist-editor, who, in spite of personal tragedy remains steadfast to his professional ethics, demonstrating that he cannot be bought, no matter what the price, the “liberated” career woman who sleeps around in order to gain favours in business, the academic-politician with a carefully cultivated charm seducing gullible and impressionable young women etc. All in all, it is simply a fascinating novel about modern India – surveying as it does the state of the country from Mahatma Gandhi to Indira Gandhi ending with the emergence of the “Emergency”.

Thanks,
Shiva

nanna feedback kooda add maadona antha…….

“Parva” is the greatest epic of all times….. I enjoyed “Aavarana”….. I’m currently reading his “Bithi” – avara athma kathana… thumba chennagidhe…..

My next reading would be Dharmashri……

Hi,

Can you give me a jist of “Tabbali Neenade Magane”. I have vague memories of the storyline of a movie when I was around 8-years old with Punyakoti song. Just want to confirm if that is Tabbali Neenade magane. Also, I would be greatful if somebody could give me the name of the English Translation of this novel as I am just a beginner in reading Kannada. Thanks in advance.

Hi Pratima.

Well, it’s about the differences in the way the people who are steeped in Indian tradition and the people who are influenced by western culture, who have their Indian roots shaken a large extent see the life: how it should be led and what should it’s relationship with the world. The brutality of ‘reformers’ who wants to change everything overnight and the lethary and indifference of common people is the gist of this novel. A vivid, very close up portrait of the lives of main character gives it an idyllic flavour. Don’t know about the English version. Speaking for myself, it’s a pity to read original works in other languages. You’d miss the subtleties.

Thanks,
Shiva

@Pratima, you can check with Sapna/Ankita for the kannada book. No idea if the book is translated to English. The story is about a foreign returned son of a villager who owns herds of cows. The son’s wife is white who eats the cows which is holy for the mother of this guy. The conflicts between the mother, son and his wife about the cow, the mother’s beliefs etc runs in the story.

i think u satart with ತಬ್ಬಲಿ ನೀನಾದೆ ಮಗನೆ(TABBALI NEENAADE MAGANE) .it was a superb novel. also ವಂಶವೃಕ್ಷ .

I have read it. I liked it.🙂 Its about Narahari, who runs after self-realization by being escapist.

Dont forget to read
Tantu…
it has vast canvas.

I need venue and timing of samvadha at bangalore conucting on 1st aug 2010

ಸ್ನೇಹಿತರೇ ಇತ್ತೀಚೆಗಷ್ಟೇ ಬಹಳ ಚರ್ಚೆಗೆ ಒಳಗಾದ ಭೈರಪ್ಪನವರ ಕಾವ್ಯದ ಹೆಸರನ್ನು ತಿಲಿಸಲಾಗುತ್ತದೆಯೇ…?

I like to this person bcz am inspairing.. Dhatu novel was very very curiasity for every movement.. Every line.. Its wonderfull realy i like this one

Better you pl read ‘malegagela Madumagalu (by-kumpeu ).IT IS VERY GOOD NOVEL ABOUT,FOREST.PLEASANT&RURAL SOCITY

I personally feel Dharmashree, Aavarana, Jalapatha are the best novels which i have read so far…

Saartha, Parva, Grahana…🙂 Also liked Mathadaana, Naayineralu, niraakarana, aavarana…

I have read SLB’s Gruhabhanga, Vamshavruksha, Saartha, Aavarana and Dharmashree so far.. All these have made me a die hard fan of him. Each one is mesmerizing read. There are people who criticise SLB for the sake of it. Just ignore them enjoy your read.

there is no link for download pdf u should buy.

no words to tell about S L B novels…. just i can feel it, i love it, i love to read ……. nange kannada books ododu andre tumba ishta byrappa, bendre, kuvempu, tejasvi, shivaram karanta, ravi belagere, nanna preetiya barahagararu

It is better to start to read s l bhairappa’s book with good book . I have started with gruhabhanga , i have ever read such wonderfull book . This book ll teaches us how people were facing difficulties to live in old days. next i read tabbaliyu neenade magane, avarana, nayi neralu, parva, vamsh vruksha, dhatu and now started with dharma shree

Around 20 years back I read Parva first time and after reading it only I purchased it and during all these years I have read it many times and still wants to read whenever I feel so. Again Avarana and Kavalu are also good books which reflects the harsh realities of our history and society. Please go ahead and read all Dr. SLB’s books — Prakash

I have read Parva, Avarana & Anveshane. Parva & avarana are awesome books, one should read these. I am starting dharmashree now.

I have read many books written by Dr.Bhairappa. All are great books. Vamsha Vruksha was the first one followed by Tabbali Ninade Magane, Naayi Neralu, Dharmashree, Avarana, Bhimakaya etc. I really think he is one of the best writers in Kannada.

Read kavalu,grahana,avarana and now jalapatha. SLB is awesome .

I started with Parva, then finished Matadaana, Aavarana, VamshaVruksha, Naayi Neralu and few more on my shelf (Mandra, Saakshi, Dhatu, GruhaBanga) which I am yet to finish reading them….IMO each time I read his book the respect for this author increases You just cant read few of his books…if like the style one would end up reading all of his books for sure…
I cant pick one best book yet…one is better than than other…
Aavarana Stands out for its research efforts, content and present day situation.

Dear Sir

Dayavittu soft copy badalu hard copy kondu odi. Avvaga oduvudara nijavaada ananda gottagutte.

Just u start with “Vamsharuksha” ….than “Avarana”…”Datu”….”Kavalu”….etc.
plz dont read “Anchu”..it too chewing and i think Byrappa fails to understood the woman psychology on this novel .

Avarava and Sartha:you have to read and think logically,not emotionally.100% you will get respect on Hinduism

sir you are great person.

In life time i want to see at-lest one time. it’s my desire.

Bahalastu jana kannada bandroonuve englishnalle comment maaduttare. (kannada gottilladavaige nanna comment apply aagalla) Kannadadavarige kannadadalle commentmadalu yaake sankocha thiliyuttilla.

Could anyone please send me a link to download the novel “Naayi Neralu”. Very much interested in reading it. divyapk243@gmail.com

If you have any soft copy S. L. Bhyrappa books send to this mail id hareesha329as@gmail.com

I am follower of SLB, but yes if we dont fight nor raise the voice against eveils…one day we loose everything and be a slave for something else which is not we ment for..We should not think what happens next, may be today we are in single numbers, but once the fire starts..it will cover whole world..Lets light the fire for good eveils..I so wish to stand by SLB and follow him in all my life..Work towards Kannada literature.

You could read a kannada titles as ebooks in Kai Books android app. They have free kannada books.

S L Bairappa is super………………………………………………..

i am reading s.l.bairappa novels tumba chennagi ede.but elli varegu nanu yavude novel study made ella because i hate bairappa

84 raghavendra mg
i hv read byarappas almost all novels,if u read his bography BHITTI u vil love him and vill try to read his all books.this book gives u about his views and ideas about him. parva. vamshvruksh,grahbhang,yaan,sarth.mandra many more are good to read.

I am big fan s l b

sapna book house ( Majestic/Koramangala etc and ankita prakashana are the best places to buy SLB and other writer’s good kannada books.

SLB’s recent books Kavalu, Yaana broke records in sales of kannada books which reprinted several times with in the span of few months.

Even Parva , Bhitti, Dharmashree and Thabbaliyu……( which I have read many times and reads whenever I feel reading it) and all other books of SLB are regularly reprinted due to vast demand. As per my knowledge Parva and other his works are hugely popular in Gujararti apart from Hindi, bengali and other languages, not to foget Marathi where he is equally popular as in Kannada literary world. I great writer indeed and last month I was disppointed when this year also he didn’t get Jnanapith award ( awarded to a noted Gujarati writer).

I think., it’s really better if yu Start’s from gruhabanga…:)

pls tell me
how to download that novels

Dear Rashmi,

Please don’t download these ( or any other kannada books). Please buy them and read the printed versions.
