Raju: Who did not go back to Englandby: Vasudeva
This book tells the story of a person who was born in India under British rule & grew up in
independent India. The story covers the circumstances which forced poverty on him when he was fourteen & still he managed to secure a first division in matriculation. After passing out from his college, he followed the British to their country for four years for further studies. When the Indian youth was queuing to go west for better opportunities, he after having failed to improve his academic or financial status to the level he had desired swam against the current to his motherland, never to look back. The story continues to tell how back in India his contemporaries assisted/resisted him in his prolonged struggle to succeed & how he unwillingly laid down his tools to settle just behind the place of his wok. Apart from his inclinations towards the British, the story dwells on his views, on the futility of Indian partition on the basis of religion, on his aversion to Indian governance/ politics & on his philosophical musings. It also gives an interesting account of the wayside anecdotes during his journey thus far.
