It has been 50 years since Gnyanapeeta awardee Dr. UR Ananthamurthys novel 'Samskara was first published. Critics have felt that this novel is originally structured like a play. The structure has successfully retained three unities of time, action and space. It has a protagonist and an antagonist.The antagonist remains a haunting presence even after his death.It also has a heroine who attracts both these characters. It deals with ideological aggression.The reading of the story should not be confined to one agrahara but read as the decay of tradition and birth of a new life and values. The story has to be read as a metaphor for the existential crisis between individual and society. Narayanappa who embodies the pleasures of the flesh, Praneshacharya who embodies versatility of thoughts, Chandri with her maternal and romantic instincts URA user these characters to explore the difficulties of modernization faced by countries like India.

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
