Introduction of the Book (The God of Small Things)
The God of Small Things is a narrative of a Syrian Christian family in Ayemenem town in Kerala. It is about the children, the grand children, and the great grand children of E. Jhon Ipe and Aleooty Ammachi. Their children are Bennan Ipe, who is most known as Pappachi and Navomi Ipe as Baby Kochamma.
The narrative’s chief focus is on the misery of Ammu for being female. As a daughter, she is subjected to discrimination by her parents, as a sister she suffers inequality in her rights to her parental assets, as a wife, she is exploited and divorced by her husband.
While the children look at him as their companion, Ammu falls in love with him. Since such an intercaste love has no social sanction, the lovers are ravaged. While Velutha is killed in police custody, Ammu is excommunicated and is left to die in poverty and disease. The Ayemenem House is ruined with the passage of time. The children of Ammu who are grown up now return to Ayemenem House to live together forever at the end.
The God of Small Things is revolutionary in many ways for it defies various notions that have been deeply rooted in the culture both at home and 397 abroad. On the basis of this assumption, The God of Small Things is read as a
subversion of Endogamy which has bred social taboos.
