Synopsis:

It was September 28, 2004 when the world of literature was stunned to have lost its versatile genius, a pioneer of Indian English fiction, Mulk Raj Anand. After enjoying 99 springs of life, he passed away quietly, leaving behind a prolific literary legacy. He was not only a writer but also a political and philosophical thinker and an active humanist dedicated to the cause of world peace and universal brotherhood.
