A remarkable work which embodies the growing dilemmas and inner contradictions of the modern man. It should interest the general readers as also those belonging to the categories of characters in this work.
It is a brilliant novel embodying ethos of modern India, an attempt to catch the spirit f the age. Before the Independence f the country, there was a spontaneous upsurge of enthusiasm and fervor, a keenness to realize the dream of Ramrajya, of prosperity and justice for all and uplift of the poor. However, the dreams seem to vanish away in the post-independence era, as self-interest dominates, corruption spreads, rat-race for getting easy money grows, and in the process familial relations shrink and get dried up.
It is a serious work of literary art characterized by historical overtones and vast sweep. It deepens our understanding about the drift of modern times where human relations and values are the first casualty.
