The gift of a cow : a translation of the Hindi novel, Godaan by Premacanda ( Book )
29 editions published between 1936 and 2002 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Story of Hori, a poor peasant who yearns to own a cow and to make the pious Hindu's traditional gift to a Brahmin when he dies. Through Premchand's vivid character portrayals we witness the efforts of Hori's family to survive the conflicts of village politics and the webs spun by colonial landownership patterns. Counterposed to the culture of rural connectedness but also constriction is the isolation but also freedom of the city. Here the rigors of industrialization and empty materialism only can be offset by the promise of Gandhian idealism
Nirmala by Premacanda ( Book )
91 editions published between 1944 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Nirmala, first published in 1928 is a moving tale of a fifteen-year-old whose life is bartered by the very hands of destiny when she is made to marry an elderly widower - a matchless match. Premchand presents a nuanced mockery of the institution of marriage and that of the patriarchal society with a high degree of reformist outline

Sevasadan by Premacanda ( Book )
21 editions published between 1955 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"One of Premchand's most successful Hindi novels, Sevasadan is a bold statement on the political and religious debates about marriage, sexuality, and prostitution, at a time when Indian women were being held up as standard-bearers of a nation in chains." "Premchand depicts the hypocrisy of the so-called 'pillars of society', who can sacrifice their orthodox principles behind closed doors, yet do not shirk from mouthing moral platitudes in public. He portrays the reality of the interest groups which cut across the newly emerging Hindu-Muslim divide, but also conceives of an ideal community that gives new direction to the life of a fallen woman and allows her to lead a meaningful existence. The stream of idealism that runs through Premchand's works has often been criticized by scholars, but it is the counterpart of a relentless psychological and social realism, which has remained unmatched to this day." "A hugely popular novel, Sevasadan went through several editions after its first publication in 1918. It was made into a film in 1938 with M. S. Subbulakshmi in the lead role. It is not only a gripping novel but also a sensitive and perceptive document on the lives of young urban men and women at the beginning of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET
