Lalettan said,” Like most children in India, I too grew up listening to the tales of Mahabharata and Ramayana. Bheema for most people who read Mahabharata was a loyal brother with a huge body and a large appetite. It was after MT Vasudevan Nair’s novel Randamoozham that many understood that other than just having a huge figure, Bheema was an emotional being.”
