The Inheritors

The Inheritors

A novel by

Aruna Chakravarti draws upon history and myth, religion and folklore, rituals and culinary practices to create a vivid portrait of a community of Vaidic Kulin Brahmins. The narrative, oscillating back and forth in time, weaves a vibrant tapestry of life - differing ideologies and sensibilities, suicides and desertions, marriages and infidelities, bigotry and liberalism - set in the larger context of a nation's inexorable march towards independence and a soicety caught on the cusp of conservatism and modernity.
