Regarded as the first major Indian novel in English, Kanthapura is the story of how Gandhi's struggle for Independence came to a casteist south Indian village. Young Moorthy, back from the city, brimming with new ideas, seeks to cut across ancient barriers and unite the villagers in non-violent action. The story emerges through the eyes of a delightful old woman, who comments on the villagers' actions with sharp-eyed wisdom, evoking the spirit of India's traditional folk epics.
