Aavarana : The Veil. El Bhairappa. Because my questions made Amir uncomfortable, he pronounced talaq just like that on the wife who had abandoned everything for him because his religion gives him that privilege.
Where do I now stand, sir? Do you have any solutions for me? She even agrees reluctantly to Amir's request that she convert to Islam, as a formality and change her name to Razia. However, she is shocked to discover that her husband is not the open-minded, progressive individual he claimed to be.

Book Review | Aavarana: The Veil
Aavarana is a Kannada novel by novelist S. This novel deals with the historical character like Mogul Emperor Aurangazeb.

A translation of a provocative Kannada novel that fails to offer any room for doubt. To borrow a perhaps unwelcome, and even dated, classification, it is a novel of ideas, in which the characters and situations are wholly subservient to the overriding agenda of the narrative. But is it a provocative read? Oh yes: Noted novelist S. But it is also self-serving, divisive and short-sighted, if not wilfully blind to the pitfalls of chest-thumping majoritarianism.
