Kali Ganga, tells the story of a young girl Suman, growing up in a small village on the banks of the river Kali Ganga. With a rare descriptive clarity, the novel recreates a piece of life with its endless cycle of births and deaths, the river with its varying moods, the village and its people and the many festivals and fairs, all seamlessly woven to create a well crafted piece of fiction. One of the finest novels to have emerged from Konkani literature.
