Translated from the Tamil, Seasons of the Palm tells the tale of an "untouchable" lad in bondage to a paternal but strong landlord. He struggles to maintain a delicate happiness, yet never-ending paintings and a obdurate starvation are by no means too distant. Relentless in its portrayal of the typical humiliations of untouchablility, the unconventional is but lyrical in its evocation of the grace with which the oppressed come to phrases with their darkish destiny.
