The Silent Witness

Publisher: Jaico Publishing House

Award Category: Translated into English, Translations
About the Book: 

Seventeenth century Malabar. Law and order lay in shambles as the Portuguese terrorize the locals. Native kings troop in separate camps—for and against the foreign invaders. The rift is so deep that Samoothiri of Calicut, the sworn enemy of the Kochi kingdom, has finally decided to join forces with Kochi to fight the outsiders.

In a dramatic turn of events, the heir to the Kochi throne, Kerala Varma, and his brother, Veera Kerala Varma, go into exile in guise of sanyasis to escape the Portuguese. During their journey, Veera Kerala Verma falls in love with Unnimaya, the gorgeous niece of the army chief of Chempakassery Raja, a major Portuguese ally.

Another storm is brewing in the horizon. The Dutch, seizing the opportunity to topple the Portuguese rule, plan to partner with Kerala Varma and Samoothiri. Will they succeed? Who will rule Kochi next? Will Veera Kerala Varma’s and Unnimaya’s love triumph above duty?
