  • Description

    Wanderers, All, by Janhavi Achrekar, is an experimental novel that blends the elements of historical fiction, memoir, and travelogue. It depicts the story of Murlidhar Khedekar, an actor-turned-police-officer whose life is deeply affected by the birth of a new nation.

    Summary of the Book

    Set against the background of colonial rule and the foundational years of the Indian police, this book traces the tale of an aspiring actor whose failure to acquire a role in the flourishing Marathi theater scene of the early 1900s leads to a job in the Bombay city police department. Also, his great-granddaughter traces her own kindred through modern Goa and the Konkan regions. The book alternates between the past and the present and blends migration with travel. It delves into themes of divided loyalty, belonging, ownership, borders between humans and nations, and the colonizer and the colonized.
