    Description

    Godan, a Hindi novel written by Premchand, highlights the exploitation and deprivation of the poor, through the lens of India’s colonial history. The story begins with Hori, a poor farmer desirous of buying a cow, the ultimate symbol of prestige and prosperity in the rural regions of India. His struggle to fulfil such a seemingly simple desire is depicted against the backdrop of his painful struggle to eke out a living. The book shows the stark contrast between the lives of the rich and the poor, the privileged and the deprived — a difference that continues to exist even in so-called modern settings. Published in 1936, the book is considered a classic in Indian literature. It has been translated into English twice. It has also been adapted for film as well as for television.


    Premchand was an Indian writer known for his contribution to Hindu-Urdu literature. Some of his works include Soje Watan, Nirmala (Hindi), and Gaban (Hindi). He was born as Dhanpat Rai on July 31, 1880, near Benares, India. He wrote several novels, plays, short stories, biographies, and essays. He adopted the pseudonym ‘Premchand’ after one of his novels was banned during the British Raj. His writing was marked by realism, often highlighting the lives of the urban middle-class and the poor. The author also wrote about social customs and topics to create national public awareness about such issues. Premchand passed away on October 8, 1936.

    Great classic by legendry author Premchand..

    This is a classic novel which describes the social system of India long before freedom.. It depicts the differences in the life of people from all classes - the poor - the rich and the middle-class in a very realistic manner.. The storyline is such that you will feel the characters of the story in front of your eyes.. You can feel each emotion of the novel.. The way the life and thinking of a villager, and the people from town is differentiated and described is a classic.. A must read for tho...

    Best Edition anywhere, and the Cheapest

    The book is widely regarded as Premchand at his best. No need for a review about that.

    The edition is small print. The cover is smooth non-shiny, just like good paperbacks, feels good and doesn't look cheap. It contains no literary introductions except at the back though, just the novel text.

    Book is different from the image

    Don't go on the image of the book. I purchased this masterpiece by Munshi Premchand in a flipkart sale and got a pathetic quality book with very bad paper quality and it doesn't look as shown in the image.
