The Dravidian Story
Living deep in the jungles of the Western Ghats is the Dravidian Tribe, holders of ancient knowledge capable of re-defining the fundamentals of modern medicine. Over hundreds of years, the Dravidian warriors have been dedicating their lives to preserving and protecting the medicinal knowledge, but now, everything they had lived for is at risk of annihilation. They are facing a force of bio Pirates too strong to defend, and are losing the battle.
The last weapon in the Dravidian arsenal is a young, blind lawyer, Arjun Mamidi, who takes their fight to the Courts of Law. Arjun is smart and has a few victories up his sleeve, but he is facing a toothless law, corrupt legal system, and formidable adversaries.
Arjun knows that his failure means the destruction of the Dravidian tribe and loss of their invaluable knowledge.
Odds are stacked against him, and Arjun Mamidi is literally fighting for the impossible.
Available on Amazon Kindle
First readers of the novel have stated that The Dravidian is a fast paced legal thriller and a page turner. Mr. Nithin Kumar, an IP Attorney, said, “Dravidian is a thrilling page turner. You can’t put it down once you start reading.”
Balaji Vadevolu, a business man, stated, “Dravidian is an entertaining and intellectually stimulating novel from a master storyteller and intellectual.

Talking about his new novel, Dr. Kalyan C. Kankanala said, “I thoroughly enjoyed writing the novel, and I hope readers will like it. This is my third and last novel in the IP Legal Thriller Series with Arjun Mamidi as the lead character.
The novel is based on the theme of traditional knowledge and bio Piracy, one of the most debated IP subjects in India. Like my earlier novels, I have tried my best to write an entertaining and thrilling page turner without losing sight of the IP concepts that form the foundations of the story. As always, I am eager to hear from the readers if I got this novel right.”
