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.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
