Anuraaghathintaey Dhinangal is a novel in Malayalam language by the celebrated novelist of Kerala Vaikom Muhammad Basheer (1908- 1994). It was written as a memoir in 1946 and was published for the first time in 1983. It discusses the love affair of a high caste Hindu woman and a Muslim writer who resembles Basheer himself (it was written as a diary) in a complex religious and political background.
The segment translated here starts with the narrator’s account of the first moment when he met the girl and goes through an array of letters exchanged between them discussing the cultural, religious and literary problems, along with his passion for his beloved.
