Book Description
So wrote E.M. Forster in the 1930s when championing Mulk Raj Anand’s finest and most controversial novel. Anand conveys with precision, urgency and barely disguised fury what it might feel like to be one of India’s untouchables. Bakha is a proud and attractive young man, but he is an outcast in a system that is only now slowly changing and was a cruel and debilitating as apartheid. Into this re-creation of one day in the life of this sweeper and latrine cleaner, Anand Pours a vitality and richness of detail that have earned him acclaim as his country’s greatest revealer of the ‘other’ India.
