Hi! Shelfari editor here. I approved one name change "Thakazhi Sivasankarapilla", but i'm not approving "Madhavikutty/Kamala das". You can erase this author and change it to either "Madhavikutty," "Kamala Suraiya," or "Kamala Das." New rules is that each pen name gets its own author's page.
I think they (NBS) doesn't offering any pre publication discount !!! . The irony is that their price is higher than their English version. In generally price of malayalam translation is less than their original , but in the case of classics it is much higher. I brought 'The Brothers Karamazov' for only Rs 95/- where 'കാരമസോവ് സഹോദരന്മാര്' is about Rs300/- I am trying to cover Dostoevsky's great works !! But I am not much confident about this great and huge books.
do u heard abt 'Budhasankramam' by K.Dilipkumar ? It is very different novel. One of the best novel I read in this recent years. very much readable, new theme and narration is also good. I meet M. Rajeevkumar in a book fair (he is the publisher of 'KAALAM' , and his tv program 'Kannada' in kairali tv wednesday mornig 7.15 am) in his stall . He recommend and persuaded me to buy that novel. It is a story of bisexual person.

Please Be innovative; you are the pioneer! print your footsteps here. I'll post my essay shortly!
yes , you are right, I am also reads, only few article appeared in mathrubhoomi weekly. but some times there appear good article especially about literature (last time there appear K P Appen's article , reading experience about Joyce and others.) I don't know why that article impressed me ?, may be its symbolic !!! conquering those novels looks like conquering life (taught, monotones & complex ) , with out full success , as if Ahab's fight to MobyDick.
I like Poonathil's 'Smarakashila'. Do u impressed by any new generation malayalam writer (if there exist any one ?)
I am living near Aluva and working in private factory. And What about you ?
I am not much impressed by Sethu's 'Adayalangal '. I read it ,when it appeared in mathrubhoomi weekly. But 'parinamam' it is a wonderful novel .The story of DOGs. I read that a long time ago but still I remember the plot and style of narration (Like a detective novel ). currently i am reading K. Aravindakshan's 'Marupathi' , not much good like his other work ('jeevaparyantham' and 'sakhimozhi'. I recomend to read this two novels. Its silence convey the sound of pain ) but it is full of discussion about the marupathi. and in all his novel we can find the philosophy BUDHA.
I don't know how u find me ? It is very pleasure to know that, there are people in shelfari who reads in malayalam also. I love reading in malayalam and most of the books in my shelf , is also malayalam translations, some time this translation lost its originality ( my knowledge in english very poor, so my choice is limited !!! ).
Then u r from palakkad, I often visit there my brother-in-low is from ottapalam (cheruplassery ), and what r u doing ?
