Another writer in the district has received similar treatment. Durai Guna’s family was forced to leave Kulanthiranpattu village since caste Hindus did not like what he had written in his 40-page novella Oorar Varaintha Oviyam. His novel is about the predicament of a Dalit couple after their son and his friends beat up the priest of a temple of caste Hindus.
