Nirmalamma Biography is a collection of essays and personal journal written by Nirmalamma, a renowned South Indian writer. Nirmalamma has written books on his life and times in much detail and this book traces his journey from birth to his death. This is not a book that one can call a biography as it does not focus on any one aspect of Nirmalamma’s life but instead Nirmalamma has created a picture of his life and times, which he describes in each essay. Nirmalamma has spent much time and effort writing these books, which are exhaustive and provide an insight into the life of a normal person.
Nirmalamma Biography traces his development from birth, where he was called Nirmalini. He was scolded often by his father for being different and not following the prescribed norms of Hindu society. As a child Nirmalmin decided to find out what these norms were and went on to marry a woman who was smaller than he was and hence he was branded a ‘petty’ boy by his father. It was this image of Nirmalmin that this book tries to shatter and depict a different side of Nirmalmin.

The focus of Nirmalamma Biography is to show how Nirmalmin changed his mind and decided to follow his own path in life and marry a much larger woman despite his physical limitations. He tells of his quest to find out the various sizes of people in his family and his quest to find out the size of his own body. Nirmalmin’s quest is almost as big and as epic as Rama’s, so we have to see where he was going with this quest before we can understand where Nirmalamma was heading. Nirmalmin’s quest takes him all over the country of India and finally Nirmalmamma Biography takes us to his homeland of Sri Lanka where Nirmalmi lives amongst other people who are much smaller in stature.
Nirmala goes back to his birth town of Veliyanadom in Kerala and writes about growing up there as a small boy. The kind of family life he grew up in helped shaped him into the man he is today. Rama, his younger brother was a typical small person who suffered from many health issues and was disabled for life. Nirmalmamma tells us about the time he spent with Rama who in turn inspired him to go on and work for the Bhutto Army, which was fighting in many wars against the British. After the war Nirmalmi married an American woman who had the body size that he is today and went on to establish a Yoga school in her name in Kovalam, India.
Nirmalamma Biography ends with some final words from Nirmalmin regarding the journey and lessons learned along the way. It ends with an obituary of Nirmalmi Thabani who in turn was posthumously honored with a Golden Jubilee citation. Many books have since been written on Nirmalamas life and in fact Nirmalamas has become a very common word in India and other countries where the Yoga tradition originated. Nirmalamas is a great example of how one can follow a life based on their values and principles even when they are much smaller in stature.
All in all Nirmalamma biography is a great read and will not disappoint any Yoga fan. If you are looking for a good story about someone who followed their morals and principles, Nirmalamma is definitely a name you should check out. The book is available at various online outlets as well as at your local bookstore.
