ವಂಶ ವೃಕ್ಷ - ಎಸ್. ಎಲ್. ಭೈರಪ್ಪ.

 Vamshavriksha - Spanning three generations and varied nuances of thought and feeling, Vamshavriksha portrays the moral dilemmas that erupt in a small tradition-bound town in Karnataka when long established social patterns are questioned in the name of the individual fulfilment. At the vortex of this upheaval is Katyayani who transgresses the taboos against widow remarriage, jeopardising her relationship with her son and linking together the destiny of two emotionally scarred families that are striving to preserve their integrity and their lineage. Vamshavriksha is a sensitive exploration of love and loss, tragedy and triumph, interwoven with spiritual, historical and cultural insights. The film version of this much-acclaimed novel won the prestigious Swarna Kamal award.
The characters Shrinivasa Shrotri, Katyayini, Sadashiva Rao, Nagalakshmi, Karunaratne and Bhageerathamma are simply marvellous. The situations when Katyayini coming to ask for her son, Researcher Sadashiva Rao's death on the laps of Nagalakshmi and much more simply heart-touching.
Bhyrappa leaves an impression on the readers not only about the book, but also about the culture, values and beliefs of our tradition. The book was written in one month from 17/4/62 to 18/5/62.

ಬದುಕಿನ ಸೂಕ್ಷ್ಮ, ಸಂಕೀರ್ಣ, ನೆಲೆಗಳ ಆಳಕ್ಕಿಳಿದು ಪ್ರಖರವಾದ ವೈಚಾರಿಕ, ತಾತ್ವಿಕ, ಮಾನವೀಯ ಅಂಶಗಳನ್ನು ಸಂವೇದನಾಶೀಲತೆಯಿಂದ ಶೋಧಿಸುವ ಕಾದಂಬರಿ "ವಂಶ ವೃಕ್ಷ".  ಹಿಂದಿ, ಮರಾಠಿ, ಗುಜರಾತಿ, ತೆಲುಗು, ಉರ್ದು, ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್ ಮೊದಲಾಗಿ ಹಲವು ಭಾಷೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಅನುವಾದಿತವಾಗಿ ಭಾರತದ ಶ್ರೇಷ್ಥ ಕಾದಂಬರಿಗಳೊಂದು ಎಂಬ ಮನ್ನಣೆಯನ್ನು ಗಳಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿದೆ. ಬದುಕಿನ ಬೇರುಗಳನ್ನು ಶೋಧಿಸುವ ಈ ಸಾಹಿತ್ಯ ಕೃತಿಯನ್ನು ಓದುವುದೇ ಒಂದು ವಿಶಿಷ್ಟ ಅನುಭವ.
