Two Measures of Bhakti (Putntanam and Melpattur)
Two Measures of Bhakti (Putntanam and Melpattur)
Description
Back of the Book

For four centuries, Jnana-Paana and Narayaniyam have been touchstones of faith in Kerala. Puntanam;s Jnana-Paana may claim to be the first original modern poem in Malayalam; simple and innocent, it still speaks directly to the reader. Melpattur’s Narayaniyam is the last great hurrah of classical Sanskrit’ in India; the poem excerpted here, majestic in its humility, describes a vision of the lord. With his elegant verse translations, Vijay Nambisan brings these poems to a new audience. Also translated is poem by Mahakavi Vallathol which relates the story of Melpattur and puntanam’s meeting and how the Sanskritist scorned the vernacular poet.

In his incisive ‘ Translator’s Apology’, Nambisan explores the dynamics of Malayali culture; places its literature in context; studies matters of prosody; and question the attitude of an elitist language to a regional one.

God did not give us the means to show others the insides of our minds. Today in this world, alas, language is imperfect, and we make mistakes because we do not understand

The politics of translation lies not only in who translates which text for whom and for what purpose, but also in the reception of these books , because readership is determined by the position the source language occupies in the real or imaginary mental landscape of the potential reader.

Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
