Would you like to tell us about a lower price? Along with Ponniyin Selvan, this is widely regarded as one of the greatest novels ever written in Tamil. Set in 7th-century south India against the backdrop of various historical events and figures, the novel created widespread interest in Tamil history. Honour, love and friendship are important themes that run through the course of the novel. Paranjothi’s Journey The novel begins with the arrival of Paranjothi in the city of Kanchi to attain tutelage under the Tamil saint Thirunavukkarasar.
But he ends up saving the damsel Sivagami and her father Aayannar from a mad elephant by throwing a spear at it, almost by reflex. There is considerable unease in the town since the Chalukya king Pulikesi is on his way to attack Kanchi. That night Paranjothi is arrested by the guards and is kept in a cell since Mahendravarman wants to see and jail the young man who saved the life of his most important artists. But Paranjothi manages to escape from the prison with help from Naganandhi, the Buddhist monk who accompanied him to Kanchipuram.
Naganandhi takes him out of the Kanchi fort through a secret tunnel to meet the master sculptor Aayannar, who stays outside the fort in a small settlement. Paranjothi plans to join the sculptor as a student and believes that should be possible since his uncle, a friend of Aayannar, has provided a letter asking Aayannar to take care of his nephew.
Naganandhi, who has promised Aayannar that he would get him the secret behind the dyes used in the Ajanta paintings under Chalukyas, asks Aayannar to send Paranjothi on a trip to the Vindhyas to meet a monk who Naganandhi says, should give Paranjothi the secret formula for the dyes.
Accordingly, Paranjothi is sent with a note written by Naganandhi. The Siege of Kanchi Seven months pass and Paranjothi is now a trusted and able commander in Mahendravarman’s army. With the battle with Pulikesi fast approaching, Paranjothi returns to Kanchi and soon becomes a close friend of Narasimhavarman.
The prince also finds him a suitable companion to describe his lost love and longing to meet Sivagami. Satrugnan, the spy chief, in the Pallava army, comes with the news from the emperor asking Narasimhavarman to launch an attack on Durveneedhan, a local chieftain who tries to attack Kanchi in this hour of crisis. The Monk’s Love Pulikesi tries bulldozing his way into the fort only to realise that Mahendravarman has fortified the city almost impregnably.
He siivagamiyin to camp outside the fort as long as it takes since he believes that the stockpile of food would soon run out in the fort forcing the Pallava king to surrender.
But the city of Kanchi has stocked well and continues to thrive and Pulakesi realises that his forces are running out of food and the elephants are slowly turning uncontrollable. The Shattered Dream Nine years pass. Mahendravarman has died, never recovering from the injury he sustained from the battle with Pulakesi’s army. Narasimhavarman, now crowned King, is married to the Pandya princess, Vanamadevi.
He continues his preparation for attacking Vatapi. Meanwhile, the differences between sivagamiyun brothers Naganandhi and Pulikesi increases. Naganandhi believes that he should be ruling the country, sivagamiin he forsook when he took up the Buddhist way of life.
He also hides from Pulakesi the fact that the Pallava forces are on their way to attack Vatapi. What further adds to Nangandhi’s anguish is the non-subjugation of Sivagami. The novel climaxes with Naganandhi being allowed to escape by Paranjothi on the grounds that Paranjothi does not want to kalkiykn a Buddhist monk.
