Why I Wrote Tiger Hills by Sarita Mandanna...

"In my homeland of Coorg it was customary to bury the umbilical cord of a newborn. Past the jungle topsoil, past tree root and shale, deep into the earth. It served as a talisman, so that no matter how far one went, no matter the passage of time, this beacon always pointed the way back home."

Tiger Hills Synopsis

When a flock of herons wheeled overhead at the moment of Devi's birth, it seemed that her life would be touched by fate...

 

As a child, Devi befriends a young boy whose mother has died in tragic circumstances. Over the years, Devi and Devanna become inseparable as they go to school together and learn more about the extended family that surrounds them.

 

However things change when Devi meets Muthi, a young man who has killed a tiger and is feted as a hero. Although she is still a child and Muthi is a man, Devi vows that one day she will marry him. It is this love that will gradually drive a wedge between her and her friend Devanna, who has been taken under the wing of a local missionary. For Devi is blind to the fact that Devanna himself has fallen for her.

 

Devanna leaves the village to study medicine, in the hope that when he returns Devi will see his worth and return his love, but then a tragedy changes the fate of all three, with far-reaching consequences for the generations to come.
