Amrita Faculty Member Publishes Book Titled "Community and History - The Early Narratives of Kerala"

Dr. Sreenath Muraleedharan K, Assistant Professor, English, School of Arts and Sciences, Kochi, published his book titled 'Community and History - The Early Narratives of Kerala'. Dr. Sreenath scrutinizes the two communities of Muslims and Christians, as religious minorities in Kerala  through the two early narratives ‘Tuhfat al-Mujahidin (16th century) and ‘Varttamanappusthakam (18th century) to unravel some of the hitherto unnoticed contours of the cultural geography of the region from where the state of Kerala evolved. The book is Muraleedharan’s doctoral research which was awarded a Ph.D by the University of Hyderabad. "I read ‘Varttamanappustakam’ and ‘Tuhfat al-Mujahidin’ as instances of intervention made by two minority communities in the non-western imagination of the ‘nation’,” he writes. He adds, “ Though these works were written in the eighteenth and sixteen centuries respectively, I consider my observations on the ‘nazrani’ and ‘mappila’ communities as historical junctures, extending their impact beyond their times.”The book is very relevant in today’s context in the backdrop of recent discourses on secularism", said Dr. Sreenath.
