Synopsis: Dharmaraja, written by the renowned Malayalam novelist C.V. Raman Pillai, was originally published in 1913. Set in eighteenth century Travancore, and revolving around an imaginary conspiracy to overthrow the rule of Maharaja Ramavarma, who was known as Dharmaraja , it explores in a subtle and powerful manner the idea and ideal of rulership and good governance as well as loyalty to the state. The novel has been celebrated for its brilliantly executed scenes and the delineation of a dramatic variety of characters who are conceived with great fidelity to their natures and presented in language that maintains a notable exactitude in the rendering of various styles of speech. Dharmaraja is arguably the greatest historical novel written in Malayalam, perhaps the greatest novel in that language.

About the Author: C.V. Raman Pillai (1858 1922) was a pioneer of Malayalam novel and drama. His first novel was Martandavarma, which was published in 1891. His next novel, Dharmaraja, was written only after a hiatus of more than two decades. It was conceptualised as the first of a trilogy based on the life of Raja Kesavadas, the eighteenth century dewan of Travancore. His Ramarajabahadur was published in two parts in 1918 and 1919. He also wrote Premamritam, a novel of contemporary life, as well as several light comedies and farces in addition to innumerable journalistic pieces on contemporary events. G.S. Iyer, a career diplomat, is also a scholar of Malayalam and Tamil and has rendered several classics from these languages into English. During his diplomatic career he had served in China, Japan, Iran, Nepal, Bhutan, the US and was ambassador of India to Morocco and Mexico. He also received the Grand Cordon of the Wissam Alaoui, the highest decoration conferred by the King of Morocco from King Hassan II. He currently lives in Delhi with his wife.

Book Description Abhinav Publications/Kaveri Books, New Delhi, India. Hardcover. Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. "This publication for the first time is a full account of the Dharmaraja Ratha, the largest and mostversatile of the famous monolithic Vimanas of Pallava origin in Mahaballpuram. With its full descriptive text and illustrations of all the sculptures, most of them hitherto unpulished, and including all the architectural views, too, it is a complete and fully illustrated treatise on the monument from the points of view of technique, architecture, sculpture, iconography, epigraphy and chronology. It is the outcome of the patient and critical study of a scholar with many years service and experience in the Archaeological Survey of India, particularly in the architectural and iconographic survey of temples, which made him the organizer and the first officer in charge of the Temple Survey Project (South). As a close and integrated study of a typical Pallavamonument and with its ample photographic illustrations the book in openingup newvistas altogether is expected to stimulate interest and further research in the field of Indian architecture and sculpture, particularly south Indian.
