This epic novel examines the very fiber of contemporary Indian life – social, political and psychological – basically in terms of post-independence, post-Gandhian scene. It is panoramic in scope, moving as it does from Bangalore to a small village near Channarayapattana, to Mysore, to Banaras and Delhi. Police brutality, hooliganism at the village level, bourgeois culture, smuggling of works of art, betrayal of a great heritage for monetary benefit by mercenaries are some of the issues raised and dealt with. The ubiquitous corruption, bribery and nepotism in high places as well as in low places is portrayed with such absolute candour and honesty that the steady erosion of traditional values and the rank philistinism that has enveloped the present day life is shown as eating away the very moral fiber of India today.The true Gandhian idealist, a honest and uncompromising journalist-editor; a “liberated” career woman who sleeps around in order to gain favors in business; the academic-politician with a carefully cultivated charm seducing gullible and impressionable young women etc. All in all, it is simply a fascinating novel about modern India – surveying as it does the state of the country from Mahatma Gandhi to Indira Gandhi ending with the emergence of the “Emergency”.Printed Pages: 1236.
