A great short story i would like to read someday. I dont know Tamil yet.Raises lot of other questions but the beauty is in this very story itself.It is the story of a young woman, a victim of sexual seduction, who could in the normal course have been destroyed by trauma and guilt. Instead, she is ceremonially cleansed by her mother who sprinkles Ganga water over her and proclaims her “pure and untainted”. The young woman presumably overcomes her sense of shame and victimisation and goes on to lead a happy, harmonious life.
The first thing that comes to mind after reading this is Ramayana, isnt it? Anyways, the name of this short story is Agnipravesham.
