Koogai the Owl PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Koogai the Owl free pdf Koogai, the owl- huddled in its hollow with the sun overhead, it flies free when darkness descends Bird of the night- an abuse, a bad omen attacked and shunned by birds, by humans...Strong, but unaware of its immense power, Koogai, the owl- foolish or wise? Set in post-Independence Tamil Nadu's era of agrarian and industrial change, Koogai reflects the nuances of an authentic contemporary myth leavened with irony and fierce humour. Empowering themselves with the image of the owl, a totem of self-respect and hope, men and women break free of old caste taboos only to find themselves entangled in the doublespeak of an egalitarian rhetoric
