Pungkuzhali- one with the flower decked tresses

It must have been the socialist within kalki who threw up a charecter that stands out alone in ponniyin selvan.

we have kings and queens, princes and princesses, villians and villis(?) we also have commoners on the stage. a spy in a saintly garb, a flower boy, a boat girl, a light house keeper, all competing for the reader’s attention.

but to many pungkuzhali( the one with the flowed decked tresses) stands out.

she is no soft girl.

she fights a cheetah witht the back bone of a shark and kills it. she paddles her way to lanka  with relative ease.

but there is a problem with her.

she will marry only an emperor she  insists.

does she?
