The Uncle's Dream, a novella written by Fyodor Dostoevsky, in Malayalam translated by Venu V Desam. The "Uncle" of the title is Prince K., a senile member of the high nobility to whom socialite Marya Moskaleva wishes to marry her daughter Zina, expecting that he will promptly die, leaving Zina a grand inheritance and the freedom to remarry whomever she wishes while still living well. Marya wines and dines the Prince and has little difficulty in getting him to propose to Zina, but Mozglyakov, another of Zina's suitors and a distant relative of the Prince, convinces him that his proposal to Zina was nothing but a dream, and hilarity ensues. The novella is a very funny parody of provincial manners, and both Marya and the Prince are amusing caricatures.
