Agnaadi, authored by Poomani, is a historical novel set in the 19th century. It depicts the lives of people in many places in Tamil Nadu for a time period of 170 years. Summary of the Book India is a land of diversity. We are still functional and dynamic irrespective of the differences that could be found every few kilometres throughout the country. And yet, some deeply rooted issues like caste conflicts, undistributed wealth and other differences prevail. This book brings out the same issues that persisted then, in the lives of people from Sivakasi, Chatrapatti, Kalingal, Chinnaiahpuram and Kazhugumalai regions. Castes like Vannaars, Naickers, Panaiyeri Nadars and Thevars who lived in the 19th century faced these disputes. Agnaadi is considered as one of the best Tamil historical novels as it brings out various faces of the Tamil regions from the old times. About Poomani Poomani is a famous Tamil writer.
