Book Summary
Kumar and Raman are champion kite flyers. Lakshmi makes delicious burfis.Their friendship develops on the banks of the Kaveri in a tiny village named‘crow shit’. They are inseparable till tragedy strikes, shattering their idyllic childhood and altering the course of their lives. The story then moves to Madras, into a house of eunuchs and the barber salon, Cool Cut. These are searing times in Tamil Nadu, and MGR is the revolutionary leader – God to his followers, who surge forward, their voices linked, their tongues loyal only to their mother tongue and to their deity. As the story follows the three friends coming to terms with their new lives, the author vividly brings to life 1970s Madras, with its politics of caste, geography, gender and language. Ultimately, The Kite Flyers is a poetic fable of friendship, severance and redemption.
