Rag Darbari (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 380

Set in post-independence India, this novel is a brutally honest account of the societal conditions in a rural place in India, complete with the picture of the multiple levels of corruption and the might of political power.

Summary Of The Book

An iconic novel, Raag Darbari is a beautiful depiction of the plain life in a small village in North India. The novel is a satire on the grave social and political conditions in a rural area in India, exemplified wonderfully through the author’s sharp insights and observations of the almost irreversibly corrupt society.

The novel is set in post-independence India and the protagonist is a young boy named Rangnath, a character most of the readers can easily identify with-a city educated boy who goes to a village called Shivpal Ganj and is taken aback by the manner in which people and situations operate there. The story spans six months and the commentary is based largely on Rangnath’s critical appraisal of the societal drifts in the rural atmosphere.

The book consists of various themes like inter-caste alliance, disease, deceit, role of women in a rural society, and the plight of those not in power. All this and more has been discussed in a light-hearted, yet solemn and compelling manner. 

Translated into 15 major Indian languages, Raag Darbari has been popularly hailed one of the most outstanding contributions to contemporary Hindi literature. This national bestseller, for which the author received the Sahitya Akademi Award, is an absolute delight for all those who appreciate sharp wit, satire, and mesmerising storylines.

A master creation for immortal

I picked up a Hindi literary work on the recommendation of a few friends, with whom I enjoy lunch time every day.
Every word is meaningful, each line is mesmerising and every paragraph is a story in itself. Perhaps, one of the finest creation that I have ever read.

The story is relevant not only in that contemporary period, but will ever last in all generation to come. The satire, the depth in characterisation and the simplicity of a complex plot is all woven in a masterpiece.

भारतीय समाज का सच्चा चित्रण

इस पुस्तक को पढ़ने से पहले मैंने नहीं सोचा था कि श्रीलाल शुक्ल जी ने भारतीय (ग्राम्य) जीवन का इतना सजीव चित्रण किया होगा। शुक्ल जी ने जटिल बातों एवं घटनाओं को इतने सरल एवं व्यंग्यात्मक तरीके के लिखा है जैसा पहले कभी नहीं पढ़ा। ४५ वर्ष पहले लिखी पुस्तक आज भी प्रासंगिक है।

आज के राजनेताओं की मानसिकता और उनकी सोच को यह बड़े खूबसूरत तरीके से प्रस्तुत करती है।
