Samskara by Ananthamurthy, U. R.
Samskara: A Rite for a Dead Man
by Ananthamurthy, U. R.
 
One of the acknowledged masterpieces of modern world literature, this is a tale of existential suspense, a life-and-death encounter between the sacred and the profane, the pure and the impure, the ascetic and the erotic. It begins when Naranappa, an inhabitant of a small south Indian town and a renegade Brahmin who has scandalously flouted the rules of caste and purity for years, eating meat, drinking alcohol, marrying beneath him, mocking God, unexpectedly falls ill and dies.
