Munshi Premchand is a legendary figure in Indian literature. His classic novel Ghaban is now offered in an audio book format, This album comprising 4 compact discs carries the complete novel.
Ghaban, first published in 1931, five years before Premchand's death, gives us a fascinating glimpse of north Indian society, and especially of the author's own Kayasth community.
But this novel also serves to put forth his own deeply-held views of the ills of that society - the insatiable love of its women for personal adornment, its failure to create fulfilling marriage relationships, and its moral corruption.
