He wrote about the life around him and made his readers aware of the problems of the urban middle-class and the country's villages. Besides being a great novelist, Premchand was also a social reformer and thinker. His works form an important part of the domain of Hindi literature. In this set of books are included his two popular novels – Nirmala, the story of a young girl who faces the trauma and horrors of being a woman in a patriarchal society and Pratigya, that shows the situation of the widows in the country and holds a positive view for their remarriage.
