This article has multiple issues. I have got nothing else to say. He says that those who approach human life as a quest to virtues, especially moral righteousness, seek vehemently an order that leads to aggression of one man against another in the form of authority, laws, rules and regulations. I have a strong, strong feeling, Nivedita may join that list, if only more of his work gets translated soon. And, finally, about quoting an example from what I do — as a movie critic — I differ from you totally. Charu Niveditha is definitely among the significant writers in Tamil at present. English 5 Tamil
Otherwise spare us lectures on puritanical sexual morality and keep it in America where people like Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter and Newt Gingrich will appreciate your sexist crap. She had no criticism however, for the incest, sexual description or the violence, a lot of which she comes across in one form or another in her line of work.
You see, some women can read beyond the obvious and think about what the subtext is. Maybe you should try meeting some of these women. I like Vaasanthi in Tamil.
So this is where the basic difference is and not with penis or vagina.
I hope nobody will try to attack your views here either, Nanditha. You are more than entitled to yours, and your online experience with Charu fans is unfortunate. If you think crude, vulgar writing is literature, yes, I should not waste my time replying.
Singaaram if you would like to know how sex should be handled. We come across so much crap in our live, why not stay positive in life, do something about it and avoid reading the this crap, for what? I would rather read Paulo Coelho instead of reading crap written by Charu. For all the good guys out there who hate charu and his vulgar writings pls answer me if u are all good then who watches porno , how do the prostitutes live, who rubs women in the back in buses , who talks vulgarly and passes comments while passing women in road, in which house a girl can truly say she has never ever been touched with the wrong intention by her dad, brother or uncle or cousin.
Have something to say, here.. A, in the Mahatma Gandhi University — Kottayam, for the past 8 years? Also, the novel is listed under the modern Asian classics section in the California State University. If the novel is crap according to our US Tamilan , why has this happened? Charu keeps telling that, he has two category of readers, mainly. One, fans who love his writing, and are crazy about it. The other category, loathes his writing to the core, and vehemently try to spread false messages.
I belong to the first category: Now I know who belongs to the second category. My piece of advice or suggestion or watever, to the second category friends is that, if you hate something, leave it.
The hype you guys create about his writing is what we are trying to counter as we consider him a mediocre porn literature writer. You guys keep referring to California State University. Do you guys know that there is no such thing as CSU? CSU is a university system which is an umbrella for CA state universities. It is like saying I went to Illinois University.
Could you please let me know in which campus Zero Degree is in the Asian Classics section? I have done my home work, please do yours and let me know I will prove you wrong when you give me an answer. Raa, Puthumaipitthan, Malayalam writers, etc are also there. This does not mean that they are in the curriculum. Did you know that Su. It has been translated in English, Hindi, Malayalam, Hebrew, etc? If my BP increases because of you guys, I would have been dead by now for all the nonsense you do everyday in the name of Charu.
We are just trying to slap you to make your brain functional again! Dude, you need to differentiate between hype and discourse. Yet all you keep harping on is the sex stuff — can you see beyond that? Charu can answer for his own behaviour and so can his fans. And university curriculum exists to start a discussion around different forms of writing, some people will agree and others will disagree.
You need to learn to respect that. Also, consider this a warning against verbal abuse. Its a total waste of time and you will get back all kinds of hate emails or what not. These guys are following him like a cult. I see that you could really spend your time efficiently rather than answering to these idiots. From your loo…ng reply, it is too evident that you continue to be in the second category I referred earlier: Lemme reply in short to your whining. This has been confirmed by the department manager herself.
This is what I repeatedly say. Charu has been replying to slanderers for many years now. Even I have been seeing the kind of stupid and foolish moral policing practiced by people like U. One more thing is that, whomsoever has blabbered so, like you did, always follow strict meditation, yoga etc.. About your language, I would have made to cling to your underpants if you would have commented so in my blog. As rightly pointed out by the author of this post in the previous comment, this is a literary discussion.
Not something which can be used for graffiti: Lots and lots of pseudo religious books are rusting. This is not a place for wisecracks like you, dude. Dude, there is no such position as department manager, get your facts straight. Please call the number in the link and check for yourself call Lisa if it is part of the curriculum I did.
I am not trying to be a cultural taliban. Even Charu has written many times, he writes all this in a schizoid state meaning: To clarify: Dude — Do u think, even without inquiring, I would have given the department details here?
And, I really appreciate your prudence in sending me a curse personally in Facebook, and portraying that you have suddenly turned in to a literary critic here.
So, at last, you have decided not to bombard others with what u think. And, lemme repeat again. There are so many dumping zones in the net. You can try puking there. After reading all this I feel shocking and amused with such a personal comment on a writer, this article by you on zero degree was one of the first ever detail review of great standard, people come in all over and spew venom on this. Personally Zero Degree is a Novel very close to my heart, I read almost every day.
The writing gives me immense knowledge about people, world and myself which no education has given. I learned de construction, post modernism, came to know about satre, Roland Barthe, George Bastele, French literature, kofta, pleasure of text, Greek mythology, I have spend day and night searching the inter texulaity in the book, I came to know how I was made up of. I was made by who, by What. Words speaks on their own.
In Christianity we say rebirth, every person has to re define himself and born again, this is what zero degree and other charu writings did to me, I became lovable, kind, passionate, obedient, open, honest, fearless, God fearing. Coming back to Unnatha sangeetham since it is not translated into English you might not have read, the most spectacular work of charu, he creates music and picture with his writings.
Unnatha sangeetham means Songs Of Songs just like in Bibile. I kindly request fresh readers to read the comments by those who oppose charu. You may find it indecent and want to skip it.. Then only you will understand the enmity and hatred in those writing.. In this highly corrupted society , these negative feelings accumulated in our brain even without our effort.. But once we start to read books of great writers like Cahru Nivedita , slowly we will come out of negative feelings and start to celebrate life..
Charu has zero creativity. He cannot write any story other than perverted sex.
Charu is a hypocrite. He thinks in the name of creativity he only can dish out vulgarity in Tamilnadu.
He is a male chauvinist who thinks women are for sexual enjoyment for males. He demeans women by regularly writing incest relationship involving women. He is the only man i have seen who practices what he writes he tries to molest young teenagers in facebook and other internet medium had he been in US he would have been awarded 40 years of imprisonment for the sexual predation he has done in his life on young and unassuming women.
As a doctor of psychological literature i could really see in Charu a sick mind who is really in need of medical attention. His followers instead of heaping false praises on demeaning and debauchery literature concentrate on his mental well being by taking him to pyschological pathologist to treat him otherwise they are equally responsible as him for unleashing a psycho on the Tamil populace. I would really appreciate that.
All your allegations are non sense and shows how shallow your thoughts and understanding are. I pity you. Charu a Male Chauvinist? He demeans women?
I dont understand on what basis these allegations are made…I dont really understand. I personally feel the first change that his writing could bring in any men would be the change in attitude towards women;the male chauvinism in you keeps dissolving. Those narrations are not fantasies of men;it was narrations made by the female characters about how men have been torturing them. Please do recommend me a good pyschological pathologist;cause i have got to know a few sick men and they need to be treated soon.
Am i being polite and decent? Nobody kicks a dead dog.. Beware of this US guy anyway.. Crowds seethed at him as he passed by the streets.. The man is George Washington!!
Way to go Charu!!! More they spit ,more you are worthy of attention. Let him get kicks out of this…do not interfere please.. Roland Barthes: How can the most beautiful human being chat the way he usually chats with his female readers? Is this the courtesy all literary gurus extend to their fans? Being the most dignified male as Mr. Charu is getting portrayed — will he accept if his wife indulges in a sex chat with a stranger?
In his novel Exile — he talks about the supreme love between the narrator and a married woman? Will he accept if his wife gets in to a similar situation? Have you read the language he uses whenever he mentions about his ex-wife…. Even at midnight.
Girls daily call him to pour out their stories, sad, unhappy ones. If he listens to them and say a few consoling words…finished!! I have personal experience. Charu is a humble, beautiful human. And a request to Pallavi…Please can you stop these derogatory comments about Charu this guy makes? Let him talk anything about his works. But he cannot cast slur on his reputation. But we his family and friends do care!
I cannot argue with an audience I refuse to listen to. I understand why you are unhappy about this, but can I suggest you just unsubscribe from comments? If all they can slur about Charu is his character without knowing him personally and they have nothing of real value to say about his writing, I think Charu should be one satisfied author, no? At first when i saw the name, i got a shock. In fact he has great respect for him and vice versa.
Day before too they met accidentally and were talking happily. What does this man i want to use an adjective, but holding me back because of decency know about him? Ask him to shut up..
Thanks and i enjoy reading your reviews. Keep it up Even jane Fonda would feel squeakish reading his garbage. Like one of the other posters suggested, write your own damn review. We disagree. So get the hell off my review. Why did you write the name. Dont you have any sense why people are using pseudonyms?
Do you have any sense of cyber laws? And I can respect a guy until he pretends to be 5 different people calling someone names to make it seem the Internet is full of idiots like him.
Piss off, dude. Find something better to do with your time than trolling someone on the Internet. But, it seems he has heeded my message. My suggestion to you, Pallavi, would be to delete his comments here on, as, lunatics will reach the height of their lunacy and will start biting people if they see ppl responding to their vomit. He is on a commenting spree as he has observed that we do respond to him.
Just ignore this fool and carry on Pallavi. Then come back and explain why you think all of these are equally perverted, sick, etc. Maybe you should engage with some of the other political, aesthetic ideas he presents as well. US tamilan will never read the works you suggested, as he already has clearly mentioned that he reads Ramana Maharshi, Coelho etc. My point is, nothing wrong in reading or not reading certain authors. And, I can clearly witness his anger and frustration when his comments are countered.
The basic thing of listening to the debate or argument or watever is missing in his barbaric approach. He wants to out-rightly crush the opposition. I am sure, if murder is not a crime, he will happily kill Charu. His aim is to assassinate the character of Charu.
In watever ways he can. And, I am gonna ask you a favor Pallavi, as one of the moderators of the Charu Nivedita fans association. I would be needing the mail id of this guy Krishna Kumar.
You can send the id as a message to my FB profile here. Fair enough. No issues. But, there is a difference between slandering and a literary remark, and I could see the threshold getting crossed here.
In case if you change your mind, let me know. Comment by Rajesh on Charu vattam facebook: OMG, you gotta to be kidding! In the message we exchanged on facebook, you said you did not wanna waste your time replying to a shithead like me. So, I ended that conversation with good bye and good luck. I also ended my postings here. I absolutely have no reason to post in different ids. This is the id I have been using to take on Charu and this is the only id I will use to take him on in future.
So, please stop this nonsense of saying that because of your comments I ran away and showing up in different ids. I can give specific examples from his stories as to how perverted and sick his writings are which I will do within a week. As painful as it might me, the only reason I read his absurd writings is to quote from them so that I can keep as many people as possible away from his books why waste hard earned money?
For example, as a movie critic, you end up watching the good, bad and the ugly but you prevent people from wasting their hard earned money on the ugly movie. I have the same purpose in life. Do you think when Charu compared Swami Nithyananda to god, he did not know the perversion that was going on in the ashram? Did you know that he was part of the inner circle of the Swami and Swami referred to Charu and his wife as his hard core devotees in his satsangs? Is this what you call ethical writing?
Only after you mentioned me as a fucker, remember? The problem with you is that, you conveniently forget to mention the other side of the argument, dude. Even in your facebook page, you have given your comment which you have posted here, with my name.
That proves who you are. And, about your blabbering here, Charu himself has given ample replies in the past.
An example: About the nithyananda episode, it was nithyananda who cheated charu and so many people saying that he is a god incarnate. And, when the truth — that Nithi is a fake — came out, Charu wrote about that too. Now, by questioning about ethical writing, do you mean to say Charu would have continued to praise Nithi, even after it got proven that he was a fraud?
And, finally, about quoting an example from what I do — as a movie critic — I differ from you totally. I do not vehemently oppose that the movies are porn, incest, they spoil the cultural value, blah blah…. I give both the pros and cons in a professional way. I take part in the debate about the movie. But, I wrote positively about that film, as I know about that particular genre.
All the best. Keep whining. If given money the internet begger will write praising anyone or demeaning anyone. He does not have ethics. There are so many instance to substantiate this like Nithi, Gopinath, Rajinikanth, ManiRathnam, Jeyamohan episodes etc. I was intrigued enough when I first heard about Charu Nivedita through Pallavi, but learning how deeply offensive his work is to these many readers, I went ahead and purchased Zero Degrees. Also, reading all these comments, I get the feeling an onus has been placed, not just on this writer but on literature as a whole.
Why hoist the writer on a pedestal and expect him or her to produce works of upliftment? These perceptions aside, a writer has no societal role whatsoever; no moral obligation to respect long established conventions of decency. Money, political statements and addressing social evils are all besides the point. Arjun Rajendran, I acknowledge your view, the writer Jobs is to Write thats it. Go head and read charu, you will enjoy his writings. For some reason people in TN wants writer to give advice, make them happy, serve them as a guide etc… I still dont know why like that, is it a Fuedal mind set?
But this should please you, determined as you are to stop people from reading his work. Crap, like most things, is subjective. What, may I ask, qualifies you to dish out this unwanted advice, to come in the way of readers exercising their right to read? If you have something to say about the writing, I will keep it. My blog is no place to plant accusations and suspicions.
Do you want to enlighten me the difference between calling someone a fucker and saying that his translation would be fucked up? I am posting our FB messages below: So glad that you are translating Rasaleela. Rajesh Da Scorp: Keep messaging me.
You called me a fucker and you conveniently turn it against me. I went thru all the messages and I have called you stupid which is evident from your posts but never called you a fucker. You can publish our FB messages for all to see including your smilies!
You keep talking about increasing my BP here and everywhere else while I have not. It is obvious that my posts are increasing the BP in the vattam. Charu also has mentioned a few times that his blood boils for blah blah blah reasons. I am not trying to be a saint here but there are many issues in India which needs immediate attention like food, healthcare, education, etc for people living in fringes of the society. Your vattam does nothing to even talk about any social issue.
Did you know that incest is illegal in western countries which Charu always raves about? Charu mentioned in an interview recently that he is addicted to sex but in the Exile review meeting held in Feb he mentions a writer forgot the name, listen to the video stating that he has not had sex for 5 years. Charu stated that his life reminded that of this writer. How can someone be addicted to sex and at the same time be starved of sex he has mentioned this in his blog postings also?
He is so bloody inconsistent is his writings and it comes back to haunt him. Even the Vachathi victims with no means whatsoever sued and got justice. So many die-nard fans like you could have footed his legal bills or helped him with this? That would have been an open and shut case had truth been with Charu? If anyone did this to me, I would have apologized like a US Politician for hurting my family ha ha ha or I would have sued those bastards.
For your info, the Panaiyur meeting audio was published by a young Vikatan student reporter in some blog which I listened to last year. Clarification before you twist my statement again: My blog — which discusses books, film and other art — is not a stage to evangelise or persecute.
And stop with this whole gullibility crap — we can equally call you a pathetic fool full of paranoia and moral outrage who cannot find an outlet anywhere else, so he turns up on the web and trolls people.
If you continue posting slanderous, defamatory remarks and casting personal judgments on the kind of person Charu is, I will delete it. You know where you can take your agenda and shove it.
