Description

“Premchand's stories present panoply of emotions. Love and hate, sacrifice and selfishness, courage and cowardice, devotion and waywardness, ambition and otherworldliness, mercy and cruelty are interwoven in the warp and weft of his stories. He has depicted the degeneracy of the society and yet he believes in the potential of the human spirit to sore above the empyrean heights.

This volumes contains ten stories, each different from the other, each complete in itself. Each seeking to stir our souls, awaken our conscience and make us think.

The stories are timeless as human nature is unchanging.”
