This novel depicts an untouchable "criminal tribe" transformed by the effects of World War II and India's independence movement. The village's struggles anticipate the dilemmas of rural development, ecological and economic exploitation, and dalit militancy that would occupy the center of India's post-Independence politics. Lyrically rendered by one of India's great novelists, this story of one people's plight dramatizes the anxieties of a nation.
