Product Description

Ramaswamy Krishnamurthy (1899-1954), better known by his pen name Kalki, was an editor, writer, journalist, poet, critic and activist for Indian independence. Kalki's expansive body of work includes editorials, short stories, film and music reviews, and historical and social novels. His stories have been made into films, such as Thyaga Bhoomi (Land of Sacrifice, 1939), the M.S. Subbulakshmi-starrer Meera (1945), Kalvanin
Kadhali
(The Thief's Lover, 1955), Parthiban Kanavu (Parthiban's Dream, 1960) and, most recently, the Mani
Ratnam-directed Ponniyin Selvan (Ponni's Beloved, 2022). One of the most renowned names in Tamil literature, Kalki was awarded the Sahitya Akademi award for his novel Alai Osai (The Sound of the Waves).

She has also translated Kalki R. Krishnamurthy's novels from the Tamil, including Parthiban's Dream (Ratna Books, 2021, shortlisted for a
Valley of Words award in 2022) and the Sivakami's Vow series (Paranjyothi's Journey, The Siege of Kanchi, The Bikshu's Love and Shattered Dream, Penguin Random House India, 2023).

A young man trudges from a tiny Chola village to Kanchi, the great city of art and learning, hoping to discover his destiny. A bikshu wanders around the Pallava empire, befriending lonely souls. Spies lurk in the shadows, and even statues of the Lord Buddha conceal secrets. Emperor Mahendra Pallava, connoisseur beyond compare, rules with compassion and justice, while his son, Kumara Chakravarthy Narasimhar, falls deeply in love with the greatest dancer of the empire, Sivakami.
Somewhere in the distance can be heard the drums of war. The fearsome Chalukyas are planning an invasion: their war elephants, horses and infantry sweep towards the Pallava empire. Emperor Pulikesi eyes Kanchi as the crowning glory to his martial achievements.
Paranjyothi's Journey, the first in the four-volume Sivakami's Vow series, is a riveting tale of war, betrayal, secret passages, guarded forts, passions and a Pallava emperor who will do anything to save his kingdom. It was written by Kalki, a master storyteller who raised Tamil literature and history to new heights almost single-handedly.
