First published in 1925, Rangbhoomi was considered by Premchand to be his best work. Set against the backdrop of colonial India--characterized by a brutal state, opportunistic, feudal landlords and ruthless capitalists"this novel is a grim account of the blind beggar Soordasıs struggle against the acquisition of his ancestral land. Weaving together themes such as industrialization, atrocities committed by princely states, the role of women in Indiaıs independence movement, and caste and class hierarchies, Playground's concerns remain shockingly relevant. Capturing Premchand's masterful handling of a variety of linguistic registers, Manju Jain's evocative translation shows us the deep humanism of one of India's greatest writers.
