A thinker and social activist, M.M. Chandra took to fiction writing a few years ago, with the first novel coming out in 2016. This was followed by two novels in quick succession in 2018 and early 2019. He has plans to continue what he calls a series of fiction that grows and develops as he proceeds with the creative project. The promise M.M. Chandra has shown is sure to crystallize in a meaningful manner in the days to come. Anand Prakash taught English literature in Delhi University till retirement in 2007. He has written books on literary theory and cultural as well as philosophical trends. His book on poet Muktibodh (written jointly with Richa Bajaj) titled Muktibodh in our time was published in 2012. This novel is the story of that Indian village which gets sacrificed on the altars of modern development. After that this succession grew fast and this slogan of 'Village On Sale' kept coming repeatedly from one state or the other. This trend still continues even today. This slogan has become a bad stain on the democratic image of our country. Why did one of our country's village need to pick up this slogan post independence, you will come to understand only after reading this novel. How much justice has been done to this novel…only reader can decide about it.
