“A banquet for all the senses we bring

to reading —Newsweek

Still, to say that it all began when Sophie Mol came

to Ayemenem is only one way of looking at it… It could be argued that it actually began thousands of years ago. Long before the Marxists came. Before the British took Malabar, before the Dutch Ascendancy, before Vasco da Gama arrived, before the Zamorin’s conquest of Calicut. Before Christianity arrived in a boat and seeped into Kerala like tea from a teabag. That it really began in the days when the Love Laws were made. The laws that lay down who should be

loved, and how. And how much.
