Description

An English translation of a Gujarati original, this modern classic is a fictionalized account of the great famine of 1900 which had ravaged this part of the world.

Set against the rural backdrop of Gujarat, it is the story of love between Kalu and Raju, but it is also the story of the hard and tragic life of the farmers in Indian villages. Written in a simple, direct style, free of conventional artifice and sophistication, at the same time without being crude or raw.

Rarely has the village of Gujarat been so artistically etched as in this novel. The translation seeks to retain the essential simplicity, the rustic flavor, and the spirit of the original.
