About the Author:

Sankaran Kutty Pottekkat made his mark in the world of letters in the 1930s. In his youth, he was witness to historic events like the Mappila Riots in Malabar which was then under the British. These events are reflected in his semi-autobiographical Oru Deshathinte Katha. His writings are marked by his individualistic vision. He was also the pioneer of travel writing in Malayalam and his travelogues gave Malayalees a glimpse into the worlds beyond their shores through his writings. Oru Desathinte Katha won the Kerala Sahithya Academy Award in 1972, the Kendra Sahithya Academy Award in 1977, and the Jnanpith Award in 1980. He died in 1982.

Sreedevi K. Nair is Associate Professor of English in NSS College for Women, Thiruvananthapuram, Kerala.

Radhika P. Menon is Associate Professor of English in Fatima Mata National College, Kollam, Kerala.
