Mulk raj Anand’s untouchable: A study of the seamy side of the Indian society


Dr. Madhu Jindal

The evil of untouchability has been eating into India’s social fabric for centuries and writer after writer has focused attention on this issue. R.K. Anand’s untouchable too deals with the caste system prevalent in the Indian society around 1930s and comments on the customs, traditions, of that era. Bakha is an apocalyptical figure who represents the soul of the under privileged and deprived society as he stands bewildered at the immensity of horror, hoping for a change. He represents a large section of Indian society which has been doomed to suffering since times immemorial and his story is the story of the whole untouchable class.
