About the Book
Kanji and Jivi is a tragic love story that never finds absolution. A young man falls in love with a girl from a different caste and how their love undergoes various tribulations forms the basis of the story. The novel traces the difficult journey the two lovers undertake as their lives take one nasty turn after another. The universality of the novel lies in the intricate examination of the choices one makes and the price one has to pay for it.

"It is not only the story of Kanji and Jivi but also the story of all of us. It is the sensitive story of the entire society. And herein lays the aesthetic beauty of this novel."
