A Bend In The Ganges
When freedom came to India . so did violence. There hundred thousand were slaughtered,a hundred thousand women were raped, abducted, mutilated . twelve million people were rendered homeless. The theme of this powerful novel is how that violence erupted in the lives of ordinary men and women and in the lives of three brilliantly depicted central characters - Gian, a follower of Gandhi, Debi-dayal, an ardent terrorist, and Debi-dayal's sister, Sundari, a ruthless woman who holds nothing sacred and is half in love with her own brother.
About the Author
Manohar Malgonkar was born in 1913 in a royal family, which had its roots in Goa. After graduating from Bombay University, he served in the Maratha Light Infantry. A big game hunter, civil servant, mine owner and farmer, he also stood for Parliament in the early seventies. Most of this activity was during momentous times of Indian history - the build-up to independence and its aftermath - often the setting for his works. The socio-historical milieu of those times forms the backdrop of his works, which are usually full of action and adventure, reflective, in some way, of his own life. His works span all genres, from novels to biographies to history books including Distant Drum, Combat of Shadows, The Princes and The Men Who Killed Gandhi. After retirement, Manohar Malgonkar settled on his farm at Barbusa near Belgaum.
