Book Description Srishti Pub. Condition: As New. Contents: 1. Freedom. 2. Vikram Singh. 3. A dead Miss Rat. 4. Girl child. 5. Aha my Fangs. 6. The daughter's marriage. 7. The female cobra. 8. The Englishman's advice. 9. Young love. 10. Arrest me. 11. Down with the zamindar. 12. The non believer dies. 13. Captured. The Snake God has four distinct flavours. A cobra who escapes a snake charmers basket and is picked up by eagles and plops into a zemindar's compound where it enjoys thirteen years of freedom. It is prayed to as the Snake God before it is recaptured by a snake charmer again. A scheming priest who wags his tail before the zemindar and fervently prays to the snake for money which will make him as rich as the latter. He is delighted when the snake kills the zemindar who dies and the estate falls into his sole charge. James Powell an officer of the British government of India a die hard imperialist whose stiff upper lip and poise take a beating when his host the terrified zemindar starts hopping on his table or on the bonnet of his jeep whenever a snake shows up. Powell stoically braves the cat calls and jeers of a people whose country is soon to get independence. And the zemindar himself who feels itchy under his heels whenever he beholds a snake causing him to perch on something high. Whether the something high is a table or his servant's back or the bonnet of the English officer's jeep does not matter as long as it is high enough. He prays to the snake for his countries independence to be freed of the irritating and degrading task of wagging his tail before the British. His prayer is fulfilled and India gets her freedom. His zemindari is abolished and poverty gallops into his life. 308 pp. Seller Inventory # 50463
