This paper begins by taking a brief look at the life of Indian author, Manil Suri, and then discusses what led him to write his first of three books, "Death of Vishnu", which focuses on the culture of several families in India. The paper goes through the text and dissects vital points throughout.

From the Paper:

"While Vishnu dies not even halfway through the text, he remains central in each character's scene. The book rotates chapters through all of the characters from the Asrani family, Pathaks, Jalals, and of course Vishnu. The god Vishnu and Vishnu from the book share many of the same traits. Vishnu, being in the landing, can hear everyone; see everyone in his centrally located spot on the landing in the apartment, very similar to the god Vishnu's ability. Furthermore, once Vishnu passes away, his ability heightens as his spirit remains in the landing watching over his dead body, and the coming and goings of the tenets."
