Book Released By  Tamil Nadu Chief Minister " M.K .Stalin" \n \nhttps://www.thehindu.com/news/national/tamil-nadu/school-education-department-and-cognizant-sign-memorandum-to-upgrade-infrastructure/article65224430.ece \n \nWith a narrative breadth never before seen in Tamil fiction, Sundara Ramasaamy's Tamarind History inaugurated a new era in Tamil letters. It tells the tales of the lives of men and women who sought its shelter and of their greed, goodness, selfishness, sacrifice, love and hatred. Its meditations on the loss of beloved places, the shared experience of the past and the meaning of togetherness amid struggle, ambition and enmity, all flow from the life of an aged tamarind tree that stands at the centre of a bustling town. This town's wild places - their mythic pasts still treasured by an old wanderer and the youth who listen to his tales - are stripped away as politicians commit to modernization in the name of progress. Yet the town remains filled with life and beauty even as it is irrevocably damaged. \n \nA dazzling novel from one of the most versatile and innovative Tamil writers, the novel has sold 1.5 lakh copies, a record in the Tamil literary world. It has twice been translated and published in English and its third translation into the same language will be released this year. It has been translated into Malayalam, Hindi and Hebrew. \n \nSundara Ramasaamy  (1931–2005), was one of the exponents of Tamil modern literature. He wrote in many genres - poetry, novel, short story, play, personal essay and literary criticism - making real interventions in Tamil writing. \n \n Gowri Kirubanandan : is a Tamil writer who won the Sahitya Akademi's Translation Prize in 2015 for her translation of the Telugu novel Vimuktha by Volga.
