ಗೃಹಭಂಗ (GRUHA BHANGA) - ಎಸ್. ಎಲ್. ಭೈರಪ್ಪ

Gruhabhanga, written in the year 1970, depicts rural India of the 1st half of the 20th century through the heroic struggle of a woman against her idiotic, lazy, selfish husband, vicious mother-in-law, superstitious neighbours and pervading poverty. This novel is considered an Indian classic and hence The National Book Trust, India translated this into all the fourteen major languages of India.
Few of the striking features of the novel is the abusive language used by the characters, struggle for life by Nanjamma, the villages and the people suffered by the plague and other diseases. 


ಯಾವುದೇ ಬೌದ್ಧಿಕ ಜಿಜ್ನಾಸೆಯ, ತಾತ್ವಿಕ, ವೈಚಾರಿಕ ವಿಶ್ಲೇಷಣೆಗಳ ಹಂಗಿಲ್ಲದೆ, ಬದುಕನ್ನು ಕೇವಲ ಬದುಕಾಗಿ ನೋಡುವ ಸಾಕ್ಷಿಪ್ರಜ್ನೆಯ ಸೃಜನಾತ್ಮಕ ಕೃತಿ - ಗೃಹಭಂಗ. ಯಾವುದೇ ಸಿದ್ಧಾಂತದ ವ್ಯಾಖ್ಯೆಗೂ ನಿಲುಕದ ಬದುಕಿನ ಒಳನೋಟಗಳ ಸಂಕೀರ್ಣ ವಿನ್ಯಾಸಗಳ ದರ್ಶನ ಮಾಡಿಸುವ ಈ ಕಾದಂಬರಿ ಬದುಕಿಗೆ ಬದುಕೇ ಬರೆದ ಭಾಷ್ಯ.
ಗೃಹಭಂಗ ಭಾರತದ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಭಾಷೆಗಳಿಗೂ ಅನುವಾದವಾಗಿ ಎಲ್ಲ ಭಾಷೆಗಳ ಓದುಗರನ್ನು ಸೆರೆಹಿಡಿದು, ಸಮಕಾಲೀನ ಭಾರತೀಯ ಕಾದಂಬರಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಅಗ್ರಮಾನ್ಯತೆ ಪಡೆದಿದೆ.
