He lost his mother and brothers to Bubonic plague in his early childhood and took on odd jobs to pay for his education. During his childhood, he was influenced by the writings of Gorur Ramaswamy Iyengar.

In his autobiography, Bhitti Wall he wrote that he took a break during his high school education. His sojourn led him to Mumbai , where he worked as a railway porter.

Controversies[ edit ] Bhyrappa was the center of several controversies because of his themes and positions on sensitive issues. Bhyrappa supported N. Narayana Murthy when he was criticized by the media and the public regarding the controversy over playing an instrumental version of the national anthem at an important occasion. He also backed N. Narayana Murthy regarding the Kaveri issue saying riots and protests are not going to solve the problem.
One of the issues Bhyrappa raised was the usage of the Persian word bin which is used to refer to a person as a "son of" in the Government of Karnataka records even during modern times.
The book discusses other methods used by Tippu Sultan to convert Hindus to Islam. Bhyrappa backs his claims with historical references. This was criticized by Girish Karnad, who portrays Tippu Sultan as a secular ruler in his plays. Bhyrappa accused Karnad of giving an inaccurate account of Tippu Sultan in his plays. Bhyrappa has documented his debate with Ananthamurthy in Bhitti, as well as in a few essays in his book Naaneke Bareyuttene. This has stirred a major controversy.
There have been accusations leveled at Bhyrappa of being a Hindu fundamentalist who wants to divide society on the basis of history, an allegation which Bhyrappa anticipated and tried to refute by referring to notable sources. Ananthamurthy accused Bhyrappa of being more of a debater than a storyteller.
He urged critics to study the reference books mentioned in the novel before arriving at any conclusion about it.
