Tarphula pictures the transformation of a village. This novel has questioned the uniformity of the traditional Marathi novels. This novel possesses the quality of giving an allegorical meaning to the society through the anarchy of a village, through the questioned security of this village. Actually, the country itself was passing through this phase in 1964 and this novel represents it. So, it inclines towards the ethical details living out the boundaries of the place. This novel reveals the fact that the community always needs a strong ruler with his strict rules. His being alive runs everything smoothly whereas his death gives rise to anarchy. The author has made use of different techniques to picturize this. Aaba Kulkarni is unable to take proper care of the disintegrated societal life. Shankar Patil has penned this down very effectively creating an environment around an unstable and weak family. He has succeeded in bringing back the year 1964 truly. The family life of many in the village, the relationship between many couples, their dialogues, the rowdy people has been very skillfully presented by him. His restraint on showing the need for a powerful leadership through each and every detail, places his writing at the top. This novel is complete in its own sense as it starts with the simple routine life of the worried and diffident villagers and covers the efforts of the new `Patil` to establish himself properly.
