My mother is a gynaecologist, and is hardly likely to faint chaaru a description of a penis or vagina in real life, let alone in a book. Chakravarthy and Rakesh Khanna. Jun 30, Chitralekha rated it liked it.

The violence, sex, and mindless nature of the society are just simple constructs to elicit shock among the readers, and the name dropping is meant to delude the reader into believing that there is more meaning in these words than their marketing value.

Do you have any sense of cyber laws? The biggest names in Indian fiction have been accepted as social commentators. This book is said to be one of the break through on tamil literature. But he cannot cast slur on his reputation.
