A novel of events leading to the death of the protagonists and the emergence of a forward looking educational institution is only a part of the brilliant portrayal of the social reality of the 1920’s. A sociological novel with a wide canvas, it shows the miserable lot of the ‘untouchables’ and the British system of village and judicial administration, which nurtured foul play. The innocent and virtuous suffer while the crooked thrive. But ultimately it is truth and rectitude that win. Solutions are found in love. Rectitude and self sacrificeABOUT THE TRANSLATOR:V.V.B.
