About Monitor Lizard and other Stories by K P Purnachandra Tejasvi Tejasvi is a unique Indian writer, and a prominent and popular writer in the Kannada language. Greatly influenced by the Socialist movement, his writings are deeply political in their body and soul. Tejasvi treats common people and circumstances as the primordial premise and decisive core of his writings and overcomes basic questions regarding life, human relationship, caste, class and other civil institutions. His sensibility is enriched due to his interaction with other fields of cultural expression like photography, painting and music. Greatly influenced by the Socialist movement, his writings are deeply political in their body and soul. Tejasvi treats common people and circumstances as the primordial premise and decisive core of his writings and overcomes basic questions regarding life, human relationship, caste, class and other civil institutions. His sensibility is enriched due to his interaction with other fields of cultural expression like photography, painting and music. All through his life and writing, Tejasvi was engaged with nature which surpasses all kinds of hierarchies. Can we call Tejasvi an Eco-Socialist? I have no doubts whatsoever. Tejasvi has offered us new insights through his writings that can be framed as ‘metaphysics of the mundane.’ It is the identity, grace, dignity and authenticity of every being that forms this metaphysics, However, he does it with the intensity and quest of a time traveller who is in search of the core essence of the universe. This has obviously formed the canvas of and the strength of a visionary. This book, a translation of ’Parisarada Kathe’ is the fruition of this vision.
