Reader completes a book when writers withdraw from the process,somewhere.
No writing is a book .The author leaves from somewhere and reader completes the circle, opined novelist Anand.He was speaking on ‘Writing map of Malayalam novels ‘ at Malayalam University’s Sahithi literary festival.
In a map, time and place have significance.Konark, Kailas, Ellora show us how did ancient people define time and place.Konark temple’s sanctum sanctorum ruined after it‘s completion. Visitors imagine the missing portion and completes the creation.Again visitors come and the completion process is repeated.
At Kailas temple, the site is the consecration. The sculptor removes unwanted portion on the rock.The installation of an idol is done after removing unwanted parts.
Workers left Ellora cave during its construction. The visitors completes it through their imagination.Books like Alkkoottam,Mrubhoomikal Undakaunnath,Govardhan’s yathrakal were re-built by th readers-Anand said.
When language and writings styles become new, conveyance is possible with new
Generation-said novelist Benyamin.
I try to avoid the repetition of old writing style.
He was interacting with children on the third day of Sahithi.
Literary writing is a process of stealing from life’s inner depths and covering
Experiences in a gift wrap. Here the fancy paper shows novelty and character-he added.

If we had mangroves, we could have reduced the fatality of tsunami.

Our country is facing the lacuna of not understanding common men’s life
Experiences. We should go ahead by realizing common men’s life lessons.
