    1. Meena Kandasamy Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Gypsy Goddess book, this is one of the most wanted Meena Kandasamy author readers around the world.

    2. She is a tease. A big one, for, at least, the first portion of the novel. The novel opens to a petition from a certain landlord to the government. Following this is the author who explains to us, apologetic sometimes, sometimes not, about the unconventional route of the storytelling. Whether this is so or not, we will see in due time. Nevertheless, the first fifty pages of metafiction is the author-narrator grappling with the elements of the story, while showing us her failed attempts of convent [...]

    3. A very difficult book to read. Brilliant prose. As the author self proclaims, it is some bad ass writing and definitely not the faint hearted or those looking for a breezy read. It sheds light on a tragic event dragging you along the bushes, forcing you to watch it from a safe hiding place, not just as an one off occurrence. You might share even a survivor guilt if you are one of these readers who have a show reel running in your mind as the book unfolds.A look at the regional papers will confir [...]

    4. The Gypsy Goddess is based on a true-life massacre of untouchable agricultural labourers. It's an excoriating view of modern India: the injustice of privilege, the hypocrisy of authority and the unforgivable politics of turning a blind eye. An inventive, provocative and brazen novel.

    5. Novel set in Tamil Nadu (“lyrical, stunning and shocking…”)If it is possible for a book to be too clever for its own good, then this is it.Kandasamy sets about giving us a fictionalised version of the massacre that took place in the village of Kilvenmani on Christmas Day 1968 when 44 Dalit agricultural labourers, including women and children, were locked in a hut by a group of landowners and burnt alive. Or rather, she doesn’t give us this – at least not for ages. The opening chapters [...]

    6. “The ochre sparrows are on fire. The pigeons in white flight are on fire. The sun is on fire. The clouds are burning at the edges. The flaming yellow of the moon is on fire. The stars pour with sparks that will scorch the earth on touchdown. The gold of the paddy fields is on fire. The burning brown mounds of grain and mountains of hay are on fire. The red flag at noon is on fire. The gutted huts have roofs on fire. The ponds are bright and burning as they splice up the sunlight. The roads cat [...]

    7. A random interview I read recently of Meena Kandasamy’s led to Watsapp conversations and I got introduced to her poems by Ashok Unny. They were so bold, raw, and fierce that I dug up all her poems available and picked her novels when I couldn’t get enough of her bitter honesty that she writes with.As I was parallely reading both The Gypsy Goddess and When I Hit You I realized, she has a very unconventional way of beginning her novel. In the latter, she starts off the first chapter saying tha [...]

    8. It is quite unusual and remarkable in that the first half of the book addresses the author's struggle with how a novel about a massacre should be written. I found this part in equal parts compelling and frustrating. How wonderful to get into the mind of the author on something so profound, but the way that the writing obscured the actual plot made it a little confusing. However, when she starts writing the story itself, from the different perspectives of the villagers, from opposing sides, in th [...]

    9. "Because I have taken the pleasure in the aggressive act of clobbering you with metafictive devices, I can hear some of you go: what happened to the rules of the novel?" says Meena Kandasamy midway through the novel. The novelist is a constant presence in the narrative and it is not something you are used to in a conventional novel. That might jar your experience while setting about reading the novel. But Meena's searing prose is extremely cynical and honest and is not out to please anyone. Weav [...]

    10. In this powerfully crafted novel, she gave vent to her angst in most interesting and witty way, taking us on a journey, exploring one of the most heinous massacres in Nagapattinam at Kilvenmani, where in 1968, 44 dalits were burnt alive by the landlords. Although, she writes in her book, that Kilvenmani is a season ticket for journalists who want to make a pilgrimage into people’s memory, that writing an annual one-page article salves not only your conscience but also everyone else’s; this b [...]

    11. This book is significantly different than any other book I have read. In essence it is angry, spirited and heartbreaking. It is, as the author herself not so humbly describes it, badass. This is a badass book. It is a story of some badass landlords and the lower rungs of the caste system who are caught between death by hunger and death by immolation. It is a story that deserves tears and retelling. But the author is too badass to make you cry - she makes you angry. She uses a badass literary too [...]

    12. I found this story very difficult to read both in the subject matter and in the way the book was structured. I think this probably reflects more on me than the author because when the story followed a more traditional format I enjoyed it far more. Knowing nothing about that period in history I was absolutely shocked at the brutality of the landowners and thought this was brought out very well in the storytelling. Man's inhumanity to man doesn't seem to improve down the years. Money still talks.

    13. out-of-the box style of narration but rage, pain and anger palpable. it was as if i was witnessing the horrible massacre at kilavenmani. one more incident to make one feel ashamed of being part of caste-ridden societies.

    14. The writing is arresting in the first few pages, but she throws it away in the end This book suffers heavily from the author's ideological predilectionsNone of the characters stay with you, what stays is the endless ranting about the virtues of communismA big letdown

    15. Lire La colère de Kurathi Amman est un expérience saisissante. Meena Kandasamy joue avec les codes du roman, avec le lecteur, avec le temps. Son récit est tout sauf linéaire, un puzzle dont les pièces s'ajoutent progressivement dans nos esprits d'abord confus pour finalement présenter un tableau révoltant. Changeant, il passe de la critique teintée de cynisme à la narration du conte, du dialogue au lecteur à un monologue sous le joug du dictateur, de l'année 1968 à l'arrivée des bla [...]

    16. Wonderful subject and dark humor make the writing arresting in parts but the overdose of communism was a bit much for me to handle. The author went on and on about it so much that at times I actually had the urge to set the book down and pick another one up. I understand her trying to make a point but it could be made forcefully once and not without bringing it up every few pages. If it was a bit more concise I would have enjoyed it so much more.

    17. Laila Bano's recommendation from one of her classes. An age old story told in a post-modern manner. And a history lesson.

    18. Meena Kandasamy's The Gypsy Goddess is a unique literary work. It pieces together the events around the late 60s class struggle between landlords and peasants in the Tanjore district, mainly focussing on the massacre in Kilvenmani. Kandasamy's style mixes a chronological journalistic narration with strong poetic language. The oddities don't stop there; Kandasamy has a penchant for inserting herself into the narrative, first person style, and apart from this the narrative shifts back and forth fr [...]

    19. This is a novel that is in part about the burning of 44 Dalit labourers in Keezhvenmani. It is about recovering, in some small measure, the voices of those who lived this experience and who continue to live with it. You will hear several of these voices in this novel. Many will stay in your head and perhaps hauntingly so. The novel is also about how this brutal massacre has slipped into the background and remains barely visible in the political discourses today in Tamil Nadu. About the forgettin [...]

    20. The book haunts you, incites you and pushes you to think. With graphic, grotesque descriptions of the Kilvenmani massacre, it leaves you with this great ball of anger in your bellyThe writer teases you in the beginning, draws you out with her myriad subversions of the conventional style of novel writing. She dons the role of a character, she taunts you for expecting a typical beginning ("Once upon a time, there was an old woman") and she chides you for wanting the usual writing format. Yes, Meen [...]

    21. The title and preview are all totally misleading. This book is an account of actual happenings which the author has painstakingly researched and put together. The author teases the reader and coaxes us to join in her journey as she unravels the happenings of that era. Extreme sarcasm does get tiring after a while but by then the reader is hooked on. The story (unfortunately, true) is sad and sadistic but has been nicely given a thrilling undertone.A wonderful first novel. Looking forward to read [...]

    22. Meena has an awesome ability to narrate an event in an unconventional way. In this text, more than once, she pushes the limits of the reader to face the caste reality, unconcealed. In my view, to a great extent, she was able to capture the everyday struggle of the Dalit landless labourers of East Tanjore against the caste and the class oppression. Although, the account of Keezhvenamni massacre had been written by many before, the nuance that this work brings forth is unique and the subtle anger [...]

    23. Meena Kandasamy takes you on a roller coaster of a ride. This book captures the pain, suffering and struggle of the oppressed peasants. Meena uses prose at various times to put her point across, and strikes a perfect balance between capturing the suffering of Nagapattinam village and making the story move along. It's about time someone wrote about the mass killings that happened in Nagapattinam and still continue to happen in many places in independent India, with a deeply compassionate touch. T [...]

    24. It felt like the author had a hard time writing this book, which is understandable as the story is a very hard one to tell. The result is that the first third of the book isn't integral to the events of the story, it's actually the author searching for her voice. When she does find her voice, the book is impossible to put down. Till that point, it's a challenge to keep reading.

    25. This book made me angry and depressed. Heartbreaking realistic narration of a horrific massacre that happened in Tanjavur district in Tamilnadu. One more case where the Indian police & judiciary, while being hand-in-glove with rich and powerful upper castes, failed completely. The narration is inventive with the author speaking directly to the reader many times through the book. Hard hitting!

    26. An angry book for a topic that deserves an angry book. Meera Kandasamy breaks rules, asks questions and makes you think in this constantly shifting novel about the Kilvenmani massacre. Some of her stylistic choices are jarring but the novel throbs with energy and exposes the apartheid of caste that still afflicts India in a way only fiction can.

    27. Meena Kandasamy is extremely prejudiced lady, although the language is powerful and story extremely fictitious her hatred towards the higher caste is very evident in the story and narrative This book is nothing more than a propaganda There isn't anything socially relevant in the book other than the hatred the a certain lady has towards higher caste and also towards Hinduism
