The best rated Malayalam novels usually focus on the coming of age saga genre, if I may call them so Thrillers in Malayalam are generally considered of inferior quality But this man changes all of this TD Ramakrishnan s books are thoroughly enjoyable thrillers At the same time these books are thought provoking Huge fan of him after reading his grossly underrated Alpha His writing reminds me of Dan Brown, in his style of creating fiction out of historical events, books, monuments, documentaries and what not Francis Ittycora is considered by many as his masterpiece The amount of research hr has done for this work is commendable This one is a must read book for anyone who reads Malayalam literature Personally I would rate Alpha higher than Ittycora because of it s simple plot and universal relevance His latest work Sugandhi enna Aandal Devanayaki is also brilliant.This writer is someone to watch out for Hugely inspiring Hope someone translates his works to English so that a lot people can read them. Reading the synopsis of Francis Itty Cora first thing came to my mind is not another conpiracy theory ,not another history twister When I read prologue to the book written by Asha Menon, though written in a very difficult academic language, it felt like it has to it.Asha Menon talked about the book tracing the start of all violence happening in the society now to small incidents happened in the past,that sounded interesting.So I decided to read anyway despite my dislike for the genre.Does the book fulfill what it promises , Lets find out.Itty Cora was an affluent spice trader who traveled allover the world and sow his seeds everywhere.Calling him just a spice trader would be undermining Cora,his knowledge and interests were in varied fields.His fields of interest include mathematics,astronomy,women and alcohol.Itty Cora left a set of rules for his family before he died.And a secret group called Cora group came into existence whose God is Itty Cora and whose rules were set by Itty Cora.The story moves through one of the modern Cora a man who is also part of Cora family who is an Iraq war veteran in search of his lost mojo and his ancestry.Three women and there accomplice who gets entangled in his search for his ancestor lured by financial profits.A mathematician who is doing a research in Francis Itty Cora s contributions to mathematics.It s their adventures twists and turns in there fortunes.Plot might look promising,but the sad thing is that s all to it.The novel never rises above the possibilities of that basic plot.The style of story telling or language doesn t really add anything to it.Language many times made me feel like I am reading a malayalam translation of some English book.The only malayalitham the book offer is the setting of some parts of story in kunnamkulam.Its a easy read the pace is good,there is always something happening and the settings keep changing and take as to many places.Its good in patches could have been an OK read if it all were concluded well,but the writer decided to dish out a half cooked ending with lots of plot holes.And if there were anything good about this book it was all spoiled by that stupid ending. Francis Ittikora was a giant among men and this figurative usage does have some qualifiers to prove it Let me see now Tutored in the Hypatian school of Mathematics check, accomplished cartographer and astronomer during the time of the renaissance check, spice merchant and accomplished trader check, trading connections with the Medici s check There are but I draw the line here for fear of appearing to be awed by this fictional mythic hero This is the bare bones caricature of the myth against which Ramakrishnan builds this extremely powerful novel with an intricately woven plot.If Korappappan means great grandfather Kora in the lingo of his still existent family was a hero when he was alive, then death has rendered him a demigod Immortalized by acts of the occult, the powerful and considerably influential family of his recons him back from the dead Through primeval acts of satisfying the flesh , they recieve his blessings in terms of power, money and and avenues of gaining the first two A group of young women who make a living by running a brothel in the guise of a school of erotica and a writer try making inquiries into this forbidden empire They end up biting off than what they can chew What ensues is what forms the nerve center of the tale It is an amalgamation of history,sex,tales of power, a look at the trade routes through Trissur in Kerala, the reach and depth of Christianity along these areas etc while being wrapped in the cloak of an investigative mode of story telling I read this book a good two plus years ago and being able to recollect the tale with this amount of detail is a sure indicator of how good the tale was An interesting Dan Brown style writing in Malayalam This book offers a unique prospect to the Kerala School of Mathematics as its called in the Western world Fiction mixed with reality, it offers an open a very open perspective about cannibalism, sex and other taboos of the culture Need a lot of nerve at times to complete it, sometimes its repetitive. the end is a bit bit disappointing but the plot and the way storytelling is superb This book can get your history wrong Its a good read with all the masala of a third rate novel The author have taken random stories and real history from all around the world, and laboriously made a web of connections with Itticora from Kunnamkulam as its epicenter Most of the history mentioned in it either wrong or made up so please do not read this expecting to learn something And also there is a lot of intellectual stuff mentioned in the book which are specifically there to make the reader think himself an intellectual This novel can be considered a new variety of crime thriller in malayalam Anyway I recommend reading it once And I think reading this one was time wasted well. Never read a book that travels through many fields and time like this one and also never read a book that is so raw in nature as this one The author plainly portrays how far a human can go inhuman. It s been 10 years since T D Ramakrishnan wrote his post modern masterpiece Francis Itty Cora This book has been lying in the shelf of my in laws house for a few years now and gathering dust This dusheera we went there for a few days I had just finished a collection of short stories by Basheer and was looking for something to read The planned trip to the book shop did not work out So reluctantly i started to read this book over the weekend I have not read a malayalam novel this fast, ever This book tells the story of a 15th century Pepper trader called Francis Itty Cora and the cult that is build around him The novel is told in a very unusual way through emails, blogs manuscripts, Wikipedia entries, and sometimes the writer narrator This novel for me was primarily a brilliant critique on the current global capitalist consumerist economy, where everything is for sale and everything has a price Mathematics, Torture, Sex, BSDM, cannibalism, organised religion, secret cults, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni, Raffaello Sanzio da Urbino, Hypatia a Hellenistic Neoplatonist philosopher , the cultural history of kunnankulam, history of trade in Kerala, Kerala school of mathematics, revolution in Peru, Fibonachi all make an appearance in this novel The lines of reality and myth disappear and what we get is a novel for the Post Truth Era.A Must Read It s dark, gore and disturbing, but the well researched plot which walks on a very feeble line between a historic thriller and a fantasy, sure provides one exciting reading experience The author has taken some topics of recent interest and have woven a complicated plot which has a global setting His technique of relating the events in the story to some well known historic events have made the story even believable.P.S A Da Vinci Code for Malayalees, Made In Kunnamkulam. `Free Pdf ↾ ഫ്രാൻസിസ് ഇട്ടിക്കോര ⇨ Francis Ittykkora, a 15th century Trader from Kunnamkulam and his adventures form the core of the novel The descendants of Ittykkora is believed to be active even now, living a secret life, controlling large number of business and power, following the gospel of Ittykkora with their own set of customs and rituals Using medieval history as the base for his theme, Ramakrishnan does a good job in keeping the central theme intact, while exploring the other aspects of modern life across continents and culture.
