About the Book
In his novels and short stories R.S. Sudarshanam tries to explore the innermost thoughts of his characters. His characters are usually in search of the fundamental truth which will explain the ultimate meaning of life. In Tree of Life there are two main characters — one is a materialist and rationalist, the other is an idealist. They argue endlessly about the meaning of human existence. Both seem to be correct from their respective philosophical standpoints. In his short stories we find the same philosophical quest — man in search of his soul, in search of the meaning of life, in search of synthesis between various contradictory points of view. Advaita philosophy is the ultimate message in all the short stories of Sudarsanam. Life can never be the same after reading Sudarshanam’s fiction.
