About the Book

Chandu Menon was a pathbreaker in the field of Malayalam literature. His Indulekha was the first novel in Malayalam in the sense that is was no adaptation or translation, but a pioneer work dealing with the people and life in Malabar and written in homely Malayalam. It gives very good pictures of a typical Malabar institution, namely the tarawad.

By profession Chandu Menon was not a writer, but a judicial officer with a reputation for efficiency. Indulekha was translated by an English civilian, Mr. Dumergue, one year after the original was printed, as he liked it so much.
