"Ravi Bus kaathu kidannu."
AndThus ends one of the greatest books in Malayalam Literature. O.V Vijayan's Khasakhinte Ithihaasam. And now this piece of article says nature has taken away that school where, Ravi taught the kids of Thasrak. The characters which were created based on this school, but still stay. Maimoona, Allapicha Mollakka, Naijamali, Miyan shaik, and Ravi too.
Vijayan reached Thasrak when his sister got the job of a teacher in that "Eekadhyapaka Vidhyalaya(Single Teacher School)". And that resulted in one of the greatest novel which will probably divide Malayalam literature into two. Khasakinu Mumpum, Khasakinu Seshavum(Before and After Khasak).
It may be quite coincidental as the great writer passed away, the school too didn't wait long and mother earth with her lashing rain helped it to walk the way Vijayan went. Can I say that school too waited for the bus? If it was a snake for Ravi, it's Mother Nature's rain for the school.
The last two lines of the article say:
"Kaalathinte Kuthozhukkil pidichu nilkkanaavathe nilampothiyenkilum vishwasaahithyathil ee vidyalayavum thasrakkum mangaathe nila nilkuka thanne cheyyum. Kaaranam ithu ithihaasamaanu; ithihaasathinte ithihaasam."
