T.K.G.Nair on Puzhayude Katha :Suvarna Nalapat believes that Love is an energy which gives heat, light and strength. Whether in
a village or in a Medical college where new generations are created for achievement of scientific
knowledge, or in this wide world, the sacred medicine for all pains is Love.
There are small but sweet dreams and disappointments in the primary school and colleges. They
have their own sweetness and sour taste. Society and its hatred and separatisms has capacity to
spread darkness in even the innocent young hearts. But the Amrithajyothi ( Eternal light ) of Love
still makes the lives beautiful and bright. Here is a Love story, simple, yet taken with a goal, with a vision, and with subtle power of art, from
the common life situations. It is attractive like a flowing river. When we search for our shadows in
the people of this story, readers get the experience of a self purification.
