Samskara (A Rite for a Dead Man)
Description
About The Book

A classic of modern Indian literature, Samskara is both a novel about ritual and religion and a contemporary reworking of ancient Brahmanical themes and myths. Probing multiple meanings of ‘Samskara’ rite of passage, ritual, preparation, transformation, as well as death rites this is an engrossing tale of a man whose personal transformation comes not through his learning and practice but through grace. With an essay by Susheela Punitha based on interviews with the author, this Oxford India Perennials edition bears testimony to Samskara’s enduring significance since its original publication in 1965 and translation in 1976.
