In the ‘Neduneram’ series, Murugasu, the last child of the family, comes home as usual on winter days of the epidemic. That’s when he receives a message from his father saying that he has not seen the mother. This makes Murugasu embark on a journey to learn about his parents’ past lives and search for his missing mother. It is also a journey that he encounters with himself and learns about different people and experiences. “I don’t want to cut the story of this novel in a line or two. Let’s say this is a journey towards different stages of life or love. It encapsulates different generations, different types of environments and different values. It brings forward different situations the boy endeavours in the journey of finding his mother. He sees life and tries to understand different people from all walks of life. Isn’t it true already? I have written this story to provide a different perspective and justice to the characters/situations and to the story overall,” the author tells DT Next.
