ഇനി ഞാന്‍ ഉറങ്ങട്ടെ (Let me sleep now)

After visiting Subin, Amina and their son (who was named Nevin Subin the next day), I went to Biren's house to drop Divya. There I found a copy of "ഇനി ഞാന്‍ ഉറങ്ങട്ടെ" (Ini Njan Urangatte) lying there. I was feeling a bit low then and was unable to progress through the other books that I had started (Russel's An outline of Philosophy and Remarkable Mathematicians). But "ഇനി ഞാന്‍ ഉറങ്ങട്ടെ" happened to be one of those clutching works that reads itself out for you. It read out itself for me in two days and left my mind wandering then on.

This is the third work based on Mahabharatham that I'm reading after Bhaarathaparyadanam by Maraar and Randamoozham by MT, and I would regard this only below the other two. But like the other two, this too stengthens my amazement and respect for the epic of epics. I wonder if there is any better reference for sociology, psychology and philosophy.

Here, the emotional turbulence inside Droupadi leaves you with some answers and so many more questions.
