The characters range from a woman who offers herself to a man to save her sister-in-law to males who are otherwise of an ascetic temperament but one fatal flaw, to a demoralized septuagenarian who rapes a child. But there runs through all of them a common frailty - slavery to ego and the desire for liberation from it.
Vishnu Prabhakar was deeply influenced by Gandhi, Karl Marx, Khalil Gibran and Dr. Ambedkar, whose thoughts are artistically reflected in his writings. His literary vision encompasses a vast cross section of contemporary Indian society and his characters are real men and women whom we come across every day. The portraiture is marked with marvellous insights into the human psyché, which he paints with a diction that is simple and eloquent and yet colourful.
Vishnu Prabhakar was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Award, Moortidevi Award and International Humanist Society, among a lot more.
