Oru Desattinte Katha (Story of a Village)

Some books stay with you for a very long time . Oru desanttinte Katha which was written by S.K Pottekatt for which he was honored with Jnanapith Award is one such book. I can still recall the feelings that I experienced when I read his book in my middle school years. I went on to read his travelogues and short stories.It opened me up to the malayalam literary world and its other great writers. Intrestingly Eighteen years before he won India's highest literary award, Shankaran Kutty Pottekkatt won the Cannanore seat in Kerala in 1962.
