Description

As land wrestles unsuccessfully with water to save itself from being swallowed, everyone leaves except Ganapayya and his family. When the Sharavathi rises, it isn’t only snakes that enter the little farmhouse. Unknown to Ganapayya, his wife’s playmate from long ago finds a place in an otherwise happy marriage. Everyone and everything changes in the farmer’s life as the values and ways of the Malnad region disappear under the flood waters of the hydroelectric project, in this first ‘displacement-novel’ presented in D’Souza’s unique style
