A classic indeed. But then, can you ever go wrong with a Premchand book? No.
Munshi Premchand narrates stories so true and painful that I feel I'm hit in the stomach. This story is nothing different. It tells us that the fire within an empty stomach lets you forget everything - your cast, your mannerisms, the difference between right and wrong. Painfully beautiful.
