THE WICKEDNESS OF CLASS SYSTEM (From the select novels of Mulk Raj Anand)
Our society is divided into two classes â€“ the rich and the poor. Though the Government of India has adopted several legislative measures that assure certain minimum wages and better service conditions to the workers and the coolies, their social and economic condition is, even today, far from satisfactory. Mulk Raj Anandâ€™s wish for the upliftment of the underprivileged, both socially and economically, finds expression in some of his novels, mostly in Anandâ€™s Coolie, Two Leaves and a Bud and The Village. He writes about the suppressed humanity with a firm conviction. He wishes the common man to raise himself to tremendous heights of dignity and redeem the world from its misery and pain.
