Product Description

Product Description

God made man
Man made money
Money made man mad

Narayana, the protagonist, is orphaned at an early age. He is looked after by his aunt. His aunt dies due to an illness, making Narayana homeless. He wanders on the streets of Zarivaram like a vagrant looking for something to eat. He cannot escape from poverty, which sticks to him like a leech. When drought strikes his village, he witnesses people dying in hordes in front of his eyes. Death brings a new reality; he begins to see life differently. He is shocked to see the Silk Street people untouched by the calamity – they seem to be selfishly enjoying the pleasures that money brings with it. He observes how destiny changes the fortunes of rich people. He makes a selfish pledge to himself: to earn money and become the richest person in his village. He ruminates a lot, patiently listens to astrologers, wise men and fools too. He strives to achieve the impossible. Will fortune favour Narayana?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Indian story 25 June 2013
By Deepa
Format:Paperback
I really liked the characters - Savithri and Bharathi; felt like I've known them for a long time. Good book for those who admire Indian traditions and culture. I learnt a lot about weaving and handloom saris in the book. Thoroughly enjoyed reading Vinay Jalla's debut novel!

4.0 out of 5 stars How luck can change life 20 August 2013
By anjan - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed reading Warp and Weft since I grew up in the town that Vnay talked about in the book. It reminded me, some what of my childhood times. It is a easy and simple to read. Vinay did a quite a bit research to narrate the story. I highly recommend to those who want know the lives of weaving community in south prior to India independence. I like the saying: God made man, man made money, and money made man mad. Thanks Vinay!
