Elephant Hued

Author Name: Krishnan S | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

Elephant Hued is a beautiful flight into a metaphysical yet realistic world, following the story of the distressed protagonist who has been inexplicably separated from their lovable companion, Kuttan. Whilst grieving and waiting for his return, they reminisce about the past, about the love and warmth they shared. Juxtaposed between the beauty of traditional Kerala, the urban high rises of Bangalore, and other scenic locations scattered throughout South India, Elephant Hued shifts continually between the bleak present and the nostalgic past. 

Day-to-day life is a struggle, a struggle outshone by moments of compassion, dissolving into nature, cryptic cathartic dreams and wholesome encounters with mystical animals. A crocodile that teaches you how to swim, a midnight ritual at a temple, an intimate meeting on an ocean of lily pads and a falling meteor. A gripping story with a playful informality woven in with subtle spiritual metaphors—exploring themes of love, separation and soul-searching.
