  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 business days.
  • Delivery times may be longer than usual due to festive demand

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

'In Stock'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Available'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Preorder' or 'Forthcoming'

For items listed as "In Stock", Sellers will mention the delivery time based on your location pincode (usually 2-3 business days, 4-5 business days or 4-6 business days in areas where standard courier service is available). For other areas, orders will be sent by Registered Post through the Indian Postal Service which may take 1-2 weeks depending on the location.

'Imported'

Sometimes, items have to be sourced by Sellers from outside India. These items are mentioned as 'Imported' on the product page and can take at least 10 days or more to be delivered to you.

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

You have probably noticed varying estimated delivery times for Sellers of the product you are interested in. Delivery times are influenced by product availability, geographic location of the Seller, your shipping destination and the courier partner's time-to-deliver to your location.

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

Godaan (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 350

Considered Munshi Premchand's best work of fiction, Godan (Hindi) is a tale of a poor peasant's heart-wrenching life set in India's pre-independence era. The novel very sensitively unfolds the life of Hori to resonate the agonies of a society overburdened by its religious beliefs and undercut by the laws of colonial rule.

Summary Of The Book

Braided around the life of Hori, a poor peasant, the story is set in an Indian village where he lives with his wife Dhaniya, 2 daughters, Sona and Rupa, and a son Gobar. It all begins when Hori, blinded by the custom of Godan (donating of a cow), which is traditionally believed to be the greatest of all donations, buys a cow on a loan from a local cowherd called Bhola. This fuels jealousy in his brother Heera and his wife, and gradually becomes the reason for a series of mishaps in Hori's life.

While Gobar's irresponsible acts put the family in an awkward social situation, other unforeseen circumstances force Hori into debts. There even comes a stage where Hori is thoroughly overworked and has hardly any money to keep his grandson well-fed. How the family emerges through all this and whether Hori's wish of Godan will be fulfilled or not, is for the readers to find out.

Among other themes like feudalism, caste system, and exploitation of the poor, Premchand also delicately captures intricate human emotions. The characters of Hori and Dhaniya stand tall and haunt the readers for their undying conviction even when faced with multiple misfortunes.

Godan (Hindi) was first published in the year 1936 and was the last complete novel by Premchand. It has been translated into English twice. Once in 1957, by Jai Ratan and P. Lal, and the second translation was by Gordon C. Roadarmel in 1968, titled The Gift of A Cow, which is considered a classic in itself. It was also made into a Hindi film starring Rajkumar in the year 1963. In 2004, it was featured as a part of a TV Series based on Premchand's works.

About Munshi Premchand

Premchand is one of the most famous and influential Indian writers of the early 20th century.

His other works include Nirmala, Gaban, Saut, Premashram, Beti ka Dhan, and Kafan.

Born in the year 1880 in Lamahi near Varanasi, he was originally named Dhanpat Rai Srivastav. Though he started writing under the pen name Nawab Rai, he later switched to Premchand. His fame gradually earned him the honorary prefix, Munshi. He has written over a dozen novels, about 250 short stories and has translated several foreign works to Hindi. He was also quite the revolutionary and married Shivarani Devi, a child widow, for which he faced a lot of social opposition. After his death in 1936, Shivarani Devi wrote Premchand Ghar Mein in his memory.
