Sevasadan
by Munshi Premchand

‘Sevasadan’ is one of the most representative novels of Munshi Premchand. Soon after it was published, the novel kicked up national debates on such pertinent social issues as prostitution and the place of women in the Indian society. Social taboos dominated the scenario as much as reformers’ zeal to tight the rot in the social value system.

The story oscillates round a glamour-struck young girl’s life. who was brought up with utmost love and care but whose father had to suffer ignominy at the hands of his adversaries for taking a once-in-lifetime bribe and being jailed for that. Her prospective engagement was broken because her mother, now made a destitute with her daughters, failed to meet the demand of dowry from the bridegroom’s family. Hapless and stranded, she. along with her mother and sibling sister, was under care of her maternal-uncle. gets married to a middle-aged pauper and pushed to life-long poverty. She failed to get what she had been dreaming for since her childhood. She fought continual battles between aspiration for a respected prosperous lifestyle, and the existing value system which forced her to live with poverty.

By the turns of events she ends up into a life of a tawaif, hatefully tries to come out of the nuisance but the irony of fate makes her the centre-point of all debates on how prostitutes could be rescued and rehabilitated. ‘Sevasadan’ exposes the time Premchand lived in. It also reflects how seriously the author had waged a battle, which is being fought in the Indian society even today.


Eastern Approaches
by Fitzroy MaClean

Fitztroy Maclean was one of the real-life inspirations for super-spy James Bond. After adventures in Soviet Russia before the war, Maclean fought with the SAS in North Africa in 1942. There he specialised in hair-raising commando raids behind enemy lines, including the daring and outrageous kidnapping of the German Consul in Axis-controlled Iraq.

Maclean’s extraordinary adventures in the Western Desert and later fighting alongside Tito’s partisans in Yugoslavia are blistering reading and show what it took to be a British hero who broke the mould . . .
