Gayathri Prabhu: The Untitled

The Untitled_Jacket_V1.jpgGayathri Prabhu’s latest novel ‘The Untitled’ is set in the eighteenth century, at the threshold of the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War. It is through the painter Richard Dawson’s eyes  that we visit the Fort town of Srirangapatna in Mysore, knowing the inevitable, and yet lulled into the town’s beauty and Tipu Sultan’s aura and amusements. The intricacies of a historical battle and the defeat of a king are painted in vivid and subtle hues, but with another and much more poignant war in the background. The Wodeyar women’s tale is told like never before, with plans for ousting a tyranny, a rare friendship between an English painter and the apprentice  Mukunda, and attachments of high stakes. A story of merging loyalties and differing truths, the story promises to shake readers of their certainties about one of the most famous wars in the history of the subcontinent.
