About the Author
Premchand is a pioneering figure in Modern Hindi literature. One of the initiators of realism in Indian fiction, his reformist stories on the evils of contemporary society proved very popular in his time. Today, his novels and short stories dealing with the quotidian lives of everyday heroes have attained the status of classics. As the greatest Hindi and Urdu writer of pre-independence India, Premchand deserves to be much better known outside his regional milieu; this felicitous translation will enable many readers to appreciate him for themselves.
