Peeli Chhatri Wali Ladki : Uday Prakash exposes brahmanism in Hindi education system.

Peeli Chhatri Wali Ladki is a Hindi novel by Uday Prakash. From its title it looks like a romantic novel. Its true that Udai Prakash has a romantic story running in the background throughout the novel. But by  using a love story in backdrop he has tried to raise several important issues faced by India.  Some of the issues raised by him through this book are
  • Growing nepotism in higher Hindi education by Brahmins.
  • Problems faced by people of NE especially those of Manipur
  • Growing  financial inequality among the masses of India

I have tried to give my view on the book here with some interesting excerpts from the novel.
