Thanks a lot to ur article and One of my inspiration artist Latha’s great illustrations are really good and I want to use this cover artworks in my blog pages Thanks a lot again I’ve read quite a few over the years. I had the same trouble with me mum saying that they were too racy.

But when weeklies like Kumudham serialised Kadal Pura, I escaped mum’s strictures ; Latha, who I am almost certain is a male artist had some serious eyecandy.

Pritham decided against including him, for several reasons he’s not really pulp–gets published in chandilyxn these days; the novels are really long; the action unfolds slowly, with a lot of elaborate flowery cahndilyan and romantic banter which is really really hard to get sounding smooth in translation.

We both sort of wish we could have done it, though. Pritham remembers that her mother read Chandilyan at home, but kept the books off-limits for her–“too racy”, it seems.


So naturally she read them as soon as she got the chance. She also remembers meeting the author a few times when she was young. I myself have been keen on learning more about the novels because a The author seems to be a perennial bestseller.

There’s also a fair amount of blog discussion about the books. Most of them are apparently done by an artist named Latha, about whom I know nothing except that he or she is totally awesome.
