Soft cover. 190 pp. Bumping and creasing to lower front corner, a few scuffs and bumps, else fine. This book presents both sides of a highly controversial issue. It focuses on the spiritual conflicts of an Anglicized Bharati writer, whose problems are further compounded by the pull in different directions of various cultures, the eternal dilemma of people who have grown up in an era still clinging to the last vestiges of colonial rule and a contemporary problem of people today brought face to face with opposing sociological structures in a rapidly shrinking world. Unashamedly allegorical, aphoristic, and filled with pathos for the human enigma as it peruses prevalent truths from different vantage points, the book moves through the writer's thought patterns, his expression of them, the resultant threats to his life and their effect on him.
