Comparative Parallelism in the Novels of Karuvaachi Kaaviyam and Kadhai Kaetkum Suvarkal
A comparative study would be at its best when the elements compared are more similar to the point. A parallel study in Comparative Research is studying the similar elements found in two different literatures that are taken for research. In that way, the Tamil novel Karuvaachi Kaaviyam and the Malayalam Novel Kadahai Kaetkum Suvargal which was translated into Tamil, are taken for a comparative analysis. Both these novels portray the life struggles of women. The main characters of these novels Karuvaachi in Karuvaachi Kaaviyam and Umadevi in Kadhai Kaetkum Suvargal, are sexually harassed by their husbands Kattaiyan and Preman respectively. Inspite of being ill-treated, they are highly sentimental about their Mangal Sutra (Thaali) as their social set up has made it deep-rooted in their minds that it is the symbol of security and protection for women. The characters of Karuvaachi and Umadevi, clearly show the simple and submissive attitude of women which forgives men when they apologize even if they are faulty and not perfect just because they are the stronger sex. But end of the Kattaiyan affected by leprosy and Preman who dies of multi-resistant tuberculosis throw light into the fact that men who do injustice to women can never escape punishment. The parallel study of the Comparative research has surveyed the similarities in these novels and brings out the thought that both Karuvaachi and Umadevi have been depicted as typical women trying their best to preserve their virtual integrity and culture to the core.
