A short thread on the impact of #Avarana novel of SL Bhairappa in Kannada.

Published in the year 2007 it immediately created a huge wave, became a significant turning point in Kannada literature.

Never expected it’s national impact, but over many years, much later - it did.

To understand this - lets step into the literary history of Karnataka.

1880-1960 - Navodaya (Culturally Rooted)
1960-1980 - Navya (Modern, Western Influence)
1970-2000 - Left Wing, Bandaya & Dalit (The Rebellion)

1 & 2 were literary/cultural. 3 was literary/political.

Navodaya never died. It continued to flow like River Saraswatee. Its impact on the society was the greatest. It simply did not have as many stalwarts as it did in the 1880-1960 period.

SLB cannot be considered as Navodaya but he took on their legacy in a different direction.
