1st edition sold out before release; Rajasree’s novel to be released on Nov 1 in Kozhikode
The novel ‘Kalyaniyennum Dakshayaniyennum Peraya Randu Sthreekalude Katha’ written by Dr. R. Rajasree was already popular among Facebook community. Its first edition was sold out within a week even before its official release and the second edition will soon be published.
Rajasree is head of the Department of Malayalam in Thalassery Brennen College. She had earlier published the novel without title through her Facebook page from May 14, 2019. She posted one chapter every day and the number of readers increased steadily.
When this was noticed, Mathrubhumi Books showed interest to publish it in the form of a book and she stopped posting the novel on Facebook. The novel was titled ‘Kalyaniyennum Dakshayaniyennum Peraya Randu Sthreekalude Katha’ (The story of two women named Kalyani and Dakshayani) when it was published as a book.
Along with the story of the two women, the novel also narrates the experiences of the Emergency, Sooranad revolution, death of AKG, demolition of Babri Masjid and other social events.
The official release of the book is scheduled for November 1, Kerala Formation Day, at K. P. Kesava Menon Hall in Kozhikode. V. R. Sudheesh, N. Sasidharan, M. C. Abdul Nassar and P. V. Sajeev will attend the discussion to be held at the event. The foreword to the novel was penned by N. Sasidharan.
