Chennai again 18/10/2017

I just finished reading  Chennaivaasi  written by T.S.Tirumurti  and published by   Harper Collins. The story line is familiar  about a  traditional Tam-Bram family  and  the conflict that arises between the patriarch  and the youngest son when he wishes to marry an American Jewish girl. The novel is in two parts and you  notice with the introduction of new characters  (all and sundry)   the  author  suddenly shifts from the  past  to  the   present tense in the second part  throwing a few surprises. T.S.Tirumurthi  who is working  for   the   Indian Foreign Service  should be lauded for his keen observation  of the goings on in contemporary society  and weaving a story around it to which the reader can relate.
