Samskara has attained iconic status in the pantheon of Kannada literature. It is hailed as a unique literary piece in the Navya tradition. The novel is as relevant today as it was 50 years ago when it was first published. Values-tradition, mores-rationality, rituals-humanity - the eternal conflict between these ideas is the crux of this novel of Praneshacharya's conflict, the question of Naranappa's fate, Chandri's existence and the plight of the town. The listener becomes one with the characters and the story. This complex story has the power to become an unforgettable experience.
