Hill, The (A Novel)


Title: Hill, The (A Novel)

Author: Venkataraman, K.

Description: ‘A novel, blending fact with fiction. Ramana Maharshi, Seshadri Swami and their devotees (with the principal exception of Sundaresa Sarma) are historical figures and the events concernsing them are true and bya and large well-known. Somu, the cartman from whose point of view the novel is written, his friends and others mentiioned are fictitious; any resemblance to anyone dead or living is coincidental. I adopted the names of those persons as they came to my mind.’ K. VenkataramanThe story while mixing fiction with facts about the saints is written from the eyes of a humble cart-driver against the background of the social and economic life of the first half of the twentieth century and, of course, of the sacred Arunachala Hill itself.
