And it is completly justified.Due to its fear, Rama left his home and decided to givefalse testimony in order to free himself from embezzlemence. But he didn't knew that Jalpa has returned the money by puttingher jewels and so he was not responsible for anything.The story does at the beginning go slowly.But it also goes interesting.The novel also shows the corruption style of the country.The novel is all about missunderstandings, jealousy, longings and sacrifice.Thereare also other characters with different nature.The story is so nicely written that their presence become necessary. Comparisons between characters is timed beautifully. The writer expresses the paragraphs in a way which perfectly describes the character, the surroundings and the situation. The dialogues used in this novel are the most suited to the characters. This is clearly seen from very first page of story.The writer Premchand also made women quite central and powerful in this novel.Rama's wife Jalpa at the beginning was very fond of jewels. After some events her heart changed. She no longer wanted the jewels. She then removes the burden of Rama by selling them. She also rescued him from illegal means. She was also courageous as she went to Calcutta. She was also a very nice friend and good at talking. At last she finally deserved herself to a wife by protecting her husband.At last I would like to say this novel is great and interesting and full of twists.Most of the issues discussed are almost as valid todayas they were in novel.This also shows that when our heart changes and we realize what we were doing, to what extent we can go and try to make things better not only for ourselves butpeople around us. I think this novel as a must read one. I am sure that after reading this novelthe reader will think again and again.
