This is a translation of Munshi Premchand's first Hindi novel (1916), centered around political and religious debates about sexuality, prostitution, and poverty. Sevasadan became the benchmark for the Indian novel as it dealt with the philosophical and personal consequences of change in a nation still in chains. This volume includes a critical introduction by Professor Vasudha Dalmia.
