He shed blood, literally


Raju Gaddi (25), who has already penned two novels, decided to do something unique, while writing the third.

He decided to write in blood, a few paragraphs of the novel ‘Ondu Nooru Rupai’ (A Hundred Rupee Note). These pages will be scanned and printed.

A diploma engineer, working as a meter reader in HESCOM, Raju hails from Shishuvinahalli in Navalgund taluk. He began writing short stories and poems since 21.
He was influenced by the works of Kannada writer Kum Veerabhadrappa, who has incidentally appreciated one of his novels. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Raju said, he wrote the paragraphs within a span of four days. He says, “I pricked my fingertip and used a toothpick to write those paragraphs. I did not face any problems,” he adds. He has written more than 650 words in blood and explains that the story is about how Kannada words on a hundred rupee note, helps a rural woman from Karnataka to return back to India, from USA.
