About the Book

 

First published in Hindi in 1957, this novel created a furore, for it was the first of its kind to discuss ‘homosexuality’, a subject kept under the wraps so far... this is a novel which tells the story of 57 lanes joined to a road, like ribs to the backbone. Written in the back waters of Uttar Pradesh, the most populated state of Indian Republic, it describes characters that are fearless, and yet command a lot of respect from their friends and acquaintances.
