NARAYANA GURU

Nanu's Wife

Very little is known about the married life of Nanu Asan. In a nearby village called Chirainkal, there was a doctor who used to cure snake bites and scorpion stings. He had a daughter. Nanu's sisters made him agree to marry that girl. The marriage was a simple affair. Nanu was not at all interested in it. He was interested in reciting the Ramayana and explaining it to others. The sisters themselves invested the bride with the 'Tali'(emblem of wedding on his behalf. The bride stayed away in her parents’ house, as was the custom in Malayalam in those days. Nanu used to visit his father-in-law's house often. His, wife passed away after a few years. It is not known whether she bore him any children.
