Krishnamurthy Hanuru with Deepa Ganesh
Translating Kumaravyasa’s Kannada Mahabharata
SN Sridhar, Krishnamurthy Hanuru and CN Ramachandran
Prof. Krishna Murthy Hanuru has taught Kannada literature at the University of Mysore for over three decades. He started his literary career collecting folklore texts and writing ethnographic accounts of folk informants. His three novels and many short stories encapsulate folk life and try to conceive history from the point of view of a common man. His recent novel Agnyathanobbana Athmacharitre (Autobiography of an unknown) describes the life an unknown commander during Haider’s and Tipu’s regimes. The novel also discusses the problems of monarchy and the palace and the relationship between common folks and their king.
