Thank you for the Sandilyan recommendation "Rajamuthirai" ( I thought Kadal Pura of Sandilyan was the most famous book ) and Kalki's short stories . I also am inclined to pick up on of the other two famous books "Parthiban Kanavu" and "Sivagamiyin Sabatham". Its very interesting that you quoted Kundavai. That is an excellent segue into the questions I had on PS. I will come back to that in a bit. Definitely agree on Kalki's potrayal of women. PS is more about the women than the men in the book and its the main strength of the book.
