An introspective Pramod reflects on the life story of his aunt Mrinal, the relationship he shared with her as a child and his gradual estrangement from her as he grew up. Raising deep philosophical questions about human nature and the restrictions imposed on it by society, The Resignation is a poignant tale that reveals the darker side of society. The Sun's Seventh Horse A unique experiment in storytelling, The Sun's Seventh Horse is a set of connected mini-narratives, and is considered to be one of the leading instances of meta-fiction in twentieth century Hindi literature. The novel is insightful and sharply ironic with characters that reveal hidden aspects of life and loss; it is an engaging contemplation about life and the fine art of story-telling. About the Author Sachidanand Vatsyayan Ajneya (1911-1987) was an eminent Hindi writer, critic, journalist and pioneer of Indian modernity in Hindi, as well as a revolutionary freedom fighter.
