Product Description

Mamooli Cheezon Ka Devata (Hindi) is set in the town of Aymanam, Kerala. The story switches between two time periods in the lives of the fraternal twins Estha and Rahel, one is the year 1969, when the twins are seven years old, and the other is the year 1993, when the twins are grown up and are both thirty years of age.

Ammu Ipe is tired of living with her family. They’re trying to get her married, but can’t afford to pay the dowry. She convinces her Mammachi (mother) and Pappachi (father) to let her stay at her distant aunt’s in Calcutta during the summer months. She however doesn’t return to Aymanam, and gets married to a man who works at a tea estate. The marriage turns out to be a mistake, as she later discovers that he is an abusive alcoholic, who even persuades her to sleep with her boss, to keep his job. She still stays on and gives birth to two daughters Rahel and Estha, but leaves her husband and moves back to Aymanam to live with her mother and brother Chacko.

Then, a series of events surrounding them begins to unfold in this town of Aymanam. Chacko, who was studying at Oxford, ends up in a failed marriage with an English woman named Margaret, and unable to secure a job, comes back to Kerala and takes over his mother’s business. Rahel and Estha fall in with love Velutha, who is an untouchable, but the love affair comes crashing down when others in the family come to know of it and banish Velutha.

Estha and Rahel are reunited and they look haunted by their pasts, and soon realize that they understand each other the best. The English version of Mamooli Cheezon Ka Devata (Hindi) titled, The God Of Small Things, won the Booker Prize.
