Initially I had no idea what difference these stories are gonna make. After each story it ripped my heart out. I never heard of these great humans before and I felt ashamed of it.
On the other hand it was proud knowing em. Loved Dr. K, and Somervell. Their magnanimous and idealism really moved me. A complete book!! Shelves: tamil-shortstories , tamil-philosophy. In a book if one story becomes a lesson I would generally rate it high, if most of the characters in each story shows a lesson I dont know how to rate it and how to review it.
This book is not collection of life stories but collection of great life lessons. A story that took half an hour to read took me 2 - 3 hours to digest.

Just a word of caution, it might require complete concentration to understand the stories so be prepared Feb 13, Dinesh Devarajan rated it really liked it Shelves: , short-stories. Yaanai Doctor, Sottrukanaku are the best. Nellai slang is bit difficult to read in initial but later it will be enjoyable to read in that slang. Nov 25, Kannan Sv rated it it was amazing. Title of book this "Aram which means "Virtue". A collection of 12 short stories based on the people who lived truthful life on their own way.
All the stories concentrate on the core point "Virtue or Righteousness", the meaning of human life. It simply shatters the soul, penetrates through the thoughts there by changing the perspective of looking human life.
The indestructible impact of this book and its personalities would haunt my life forever with my wet eyelids. One of the greatest books I've ever read and I'm grateful to the author for that. Jun 10, Balakrishnan rated it really liked it. Stories that we cross by but tend to forget as it goes and easily ignore. This doesn't take any sides - but would eventually leave the reader think through it pretty well.
Aram, in my view, is much an educating stuff that deserves a case study on our high school. Ps- I'm not initially able 9 of 10 voracious tamil readers have recommended Aram to me before I took this wonderful piece on hand.. Ps- I'm not initially able to follow the Southern accent but easily caught up with the travel.
Dec 20, Hema Kushi rated it it was amazing. Yaanai Doctor!!! It made me to think a lot about the human life as well as wild life..
How creatures are created with enormous amount of pain tolerating skills.. Now a days I started to feel the pain of street dogs with wounds.. Really a man is a Vain insect. Deep thoughts about morality Every human would have experienced in their lives a moral conflict with their own inner self.
Making mistakes, regretting it, an inner conflict before commiting any mistake. Such things are portrayed in a great manner in this book.

Virtues Aram and values have been even taught to us through Aesop's fables with examples of animals. These stories and proverbs fades away as we grow up as adults, how much are we willing to follow the virtues in our real life? Aram from Jeyamohan rekindles our spirit showing how virtues and values are so important in our life.
And he doesn't teach you these forcefully but by taking us through the life of some incredible human beings who have lived among us, and the beauty is he makes sure that you're consuming these virtues without your consciousness. Before even completing this book, I had already written a review on yaanai doctor separately.
It was so overwhelming that I read it to my wife again. The book shows how humble, empathetic and earnest a human can be to himself, others and most importantly to nature and animals by showing us various incidents in the life of Dr. I can go on and on writing about the various scenes in different stories which still resonates in my heart. But this novel has to be read not just that you learn something out of it but to know about some of the humans who made this world better by their deeds.
K, Aanaikaruthaan, Nesamony, Kethel Saheb, Somerwell, Poomedai and Gary Davis will not just stick to your heart as mere characters that you normally read in a novel, but as virtues for the values they believed and stood for.
Note: I've given a rating as four since I had difficulty in understanding the core of two or three of the short stories coz of the colloquial slang native to different communities and caste. Nov 01, Anbarasi rated it it was amazing.

Prolific Indian writer B. Jeyamohan has more than 50 books in Tamil under his belt and writes a new chapter every day. The award-winning novelist and critic is also the screenwriter behind the upcoming movie, Enthiran 2. Ironically, for someone penning the next box-office hit, Jeyamohan's socially conscious novels inspired a trend of realistic Tamil cinema in the Noughties. The founder of one of the earliest Tamil literary websites - set up using a pioneering Unicode font created by developers in Singapore and Malaysia - Jeyamohan joins Singaporean writer K.
Tamil writer re-writing Mahabharata by posting one chapter every day online
His best-known and most critically acclaimed work is Vishnupuram , a fantasy set as a quest through various schools of Indian philosophy and mythology. In , he started his most ambitious work Venmurasu , a modern renarration of the epic Mahabharata. The early major influences in his life have been the humanitarian thinkers Leo Tolstoy and Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi. Drawing on the strength of his life experiences and extensive travel around India, Jeyamohan is able to re-examine and interpret the essence of India's rich literary and classical traditions.
