Description

About the Book:

Ramanath, the morally weak but physically charming son of a poor but honest government clerk in Allahabad, marries the beautiful Jalpa, whose passion for jewellery involves him in increasingly complex financial and personal relationships, eventually leading to his apparent disgrace, and his flight from home. Shocked into the renunciation of all her finery, Jalpa discovers Ramanath's whereabouts, only to learn that he has become the willing tool of the Calcutta police, who are bent on implicating innocent people to successfully conclude an unsolved robbery case. Her courageous appeals to his better nature finally bring about his redemption and their reunion.

Gaban gives us a fascinating glimpse of north Indian society, and especially of the author's own Kayasth community. The novel also serves to put forth his own deeply-held views of the ills of that society.

About the Author:

Premchand (1880-1936) is a pioneering figure in modern Hindi literature. Today, his novels and short stories have attained the status of classics.

Christopher R. King was Associate Professor of History and Communication Studies at the University of Windsor, Canada.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt

Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,

Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
