    .When I read this first line and subsequently a chapter of this epic in Tamizh, I immediately realised how lame I had been to read the English translation The greatness of the Tamizh culture and heritage and the awe inspiring dynasties that ruled over Tamil Nadu in the 10th century form the very core of this book, and it is almost unjust to have not read it in Tamil The translation .When I read this first line and subsequently a chapter of this epic in Tamizh, I immediately realised how lame I had been to read the English translation The greatness of the Tamizh culture and heritage and the awe inspiring dynasties that ruled over Tamil Nadu in the 10th century form the very core of this book, and it is almost unjust to have not read it in Tamil The translation by Karthik Narayanan is what I picked up bound by the inadequacies of my Tamil reading skills and nevertheless, it is by far the most engrossing historical novel I have read The historical facts and characters and the fictional plot are so seamlessly intertwined that I honestly had to check from multiple sources of it was indeed a work of fiction It paints the greatness and the prosperity of the Chozha empire to such detail that one is completely transported to that era while reading the book and yearns to get back there long after completing it The characterisation is extremely powerful, with each character so unique and not without his share of weaknesses and cunning that it is hard to pick a favourite if I had to, I would pick Poonkuzhali the embodiment of free spirit Deceit, love, treachery, passion, power lust and the other sentiments that form the backbone of the plot are so timeless that the story seems relevant despite being set in another era The intriguing politics surrounding the succession of the Chozha throne make for a compelling page turner The translation is a very fair attempt, though I am sure language being the essence of the book, the intended beauty in many parts is lost the many many poems and pasurams quoted, to cite an example The translation is very literal, and hence the language leaves a lot to be desired However the attempt is laudable,so the intent to reach the greatness of the Chozha dynasty and such an interesting novel to the Tamil illiterate

    Lot of information about the activities of various kings came from inscriptions like these as well as copper plates like the Anbil one The Thiruvalangadu copper plates state, The Chozha people were very keen that after Sundara Chozhan, Arulmozhi Varman should ascend the throne and rule their country But Arulmozhi Varman respected the right of his Uncle Uttama Chozhan, the son of his father s younger brother, Kandaradithan, to the throne and crowned him King.This was my first Indian historic Lot of information about the activities of various kings came from inscriptions like these as well as copper plates like the Anbil one The Thiruvalangadu copper plates state, The Chozha people were very keen that after Sundara Chozhan, Arulmozhi Varman should ascend the throne and rule their country But Arulmozhi Varman respected the right of his Uncle Uttama Chozhan, the son of his father s younger brother, Kandaradithan, to the throne and crowned him King.This was my first Indian historic novel and it gave a good idea of the Chola dynasty in a non boring way.Ponniyin Selvan is a Novel of the century It should be treasured and passed on to generations It is our onus to appreciate and spread its greatness There is a wonderful active community in the orkut for this book Please do check it out.This book hasn t been made in to movie yet, because of the budget constraint However, Kalaignar TV has taken initiative to make it as a mega serial Marmadesam Naga is directing the serial I am hoping that someday it will be made in to a movie too and captivate millions of people It is awesome even to imagine PS in the lord of the rings style on the big screen I will keep my fingers crossed
