In the idyllic university town, young women daydreamed as they lay on the grass and gazed up at the clouds. Young men took morning walks at Alfred Park. Hot summer afternoons were for drinking sherbet and eating watermelons, and evenings for reading poetry. It was also a time of stifling social mores, and love was an unattainable ideal seldom realized.
Allahabad of the 1940s is the serene backdrop to the turbulence of Chander's love for his professor's daughter Sudha. Driven by his passionate belief in the transcending purity of their love, Chander persuades Sudha to marry another man, to devastating consequences. Unhinged by his separation from Sudha and consumed by a restless desire to make sense of love-'Is it really about sex? Is the purity of love a lie?-'Chander spirals into a destructive affair with the seductive Pammi.
Immensely popular since its publication more than half a century ago, Chander & Sudha continues to seduce readers with its potent mix of tender passion and heartbreaking tragedy.
