Autobiography of P Kesavadev, famous writer and revolutionary. 'Ethirppu' is not a complete autobiography, but they reflect the life around him. It presents a true account of the socio-economic situation that prevailed during the time and its influence on Kesava Dev, which turned him into a rebel. The most striking feature of this book is the truthfulness. Kesava Dev could have presented a sugar coated autobiography but he willfully remained truthful.
