Cocoon (Kosla) is as much the story of the growth of an anti-hero as it is about his failure to grow in a culture inimical to honest and ruthless questioners of social conventions. In a crowded narrative, episode follows episode and things that are anticipated fail to happen. In its assault on all manner of fatuous falsehoods, and in finding a language and a narrative pattern to voice it, this novel is a landmark in Marathi literature.

I’m sure I’m missing the pun, wit and double entendre of original Marathi, while reading its translated English version. The original Marathi book is regarded as radical one, especially the way Nemade played with its form. But Sudhakar Marathe had done fine possible justice to the English translation. The essence of the content and fun of the form are not lost in translation here as in the case of most of Indian English translations.
The book is a translation of a famous book 'Kosala' in Marathi.
The author has done a very poor job in translating the book.
A Bing or Google Translation would have been better it seems.
Very bad translation!!
