This book is Oriya translation of Kannada novel - with the same title authored by famous writer U R Anantha Murthy.

Samskara is both a religious novel and a contemporary poetic reworking of ancient Hindu themes and myths.

It is about a decaying Brahmin colony in a south Indian village. Its central event is a death, which brings in its wake a plague, moral chaos and a rebirth.

Originally published in Kannada in 1965, this novel soon became enormously popular with general readers and critics. The present English translation has been widely acclaimed, and the novel has been translated into several foreign languages as well as filmed.
