Controversial 'Madhorubhagan' to be read at Kochi Biennale

Kochi: Literary and cinema personalities would read from the English translation of Perumal Murugan's Tamil novel ‘Madhorubhagan’ at the Kochi-Muziris Biennale (KMB) 2014 on Saturday.

The English translation of the novel ‘One Part Woman' has been caught up in protests over the past week with some groups seeking a ban on the book, claiming that it denigrates Hindu deities and women devotees. Copies of the book were burnt and protest groups called for his arrest, following which the author issued a statement on Facebook that the writer is “dead” and “Perumal Murugan should be left alone”.

The reading will be led by noted Malayalam writer and former bureaucrat N S Madhavan at the Aspinwall House Pavilion.
