Our village - I don't think you have ever heard about it - Kanthapura is its name, and it is in the province of Kara.
'And remember always, the path we follow is the path of the Spirit, and with truth and non-violence and love shall we add to the harmony of the world. For, brothers, we are not soldiers at arms, say I; we seek to be soldier saints.' (pg 131 of 190)
But to tell you the truth, Mother, my heart it beat like a drum.
Kanthapura has been described as one of the most satisfying of all modern Indian novels. Recognized as a major landmark of Indian fiction, it is the story of how the Gandhian struggle for independence comes to one small village in south India.
