Otousan The Journey of An Ill-Fated Son And a Broken Father

Author Name: Hayash Teenoth | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

This tale chronicles Maadhu's struggle to emerge from the shadows of a precarious self-image built around the subtle oedipal struggles of not being able to match his father's illustrious status. His own inability to overcome the subconscious paradoxes ingrained into his psyche due to the systemic neglect and emotional indifference from his father. The exclusive presence of adoration and constant respect for his father acts as a lynchpin for his insecure complexes. He tries to find adoration by being antisocial, but the deep-rooted values and system instilled by his mother comes back to haunt him which destroys his ego, and he reclaims and becomes a professor. His poor volitional talents psychologically devastated his daughter to only lose herself in a labyrinth of green wrist and blue floating ladders. Will his constellation of conflicting emotions affect the existence of his own daughter??
