Published by Leadstart Publishing, Life Unshackled by Mallikarjun B. Mulimani is a riveting novella shuttling between romance and self-discovery.
The lead character named Rudra has been a victim of dysfunctional milieu’s conditioning since early days in his life. His life is like a sailing boat drifting directionless in the ocean of sadness and gloom. He has struggled a lot, even for basic privileges. The author kept him, for many chapters, as someone naive and dull until he meets one sex worker. For sure, Rudra’s life is filled with hardships but he did not fail to gain sympathy of readers.
The real story begins when he falls in love with Krupa, a sex worker, whom he often visits. The story of the novel highlights the paradoxes of life and proves that futility of social protocols may dampen the heart of someone who is often ignored by many. Rudra evolves himself with a sex worker – this might not be true for most folks. His inspiration lies in taboos of the society. It is an interesting story where one individual walks out of darkness to light on some objectionable support.
Much part of the novel sounds like an intense romance where two lovers try to cope up with the abnormal ways of social life. From narration to story structure, all is good about this novella. It is a different novel and can be tried by romance as well as contemporary readers.
