Samskara : a rite for a dead man by U. R Anantha Murthy( Book )

65 editions published between 1966 and 2016 in 11 languages and held by 682 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Samskara is one of the acknowledged masterpieces of modern world literature, a book to set beside Chinua Achebe s Things Fall Apart and Tayeb Salih s Season of Migration to the North. Taking its name from a Sanskrit word that means rite of passage but also moment of recognition, it begins when Naranappa, an inhabitant of a small south Indian town and a renegade Brahmin who has scandalously flouted the rules of caste and purity for years, eating meat, drinking alcohol, marrying beneath him, mocking God, unexpectedly falls ill and dies
Bharathipura by U. R Anantha Murthy( Book )

21 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1973, Bharathipura is about the practice of untouchability in a traditional society that is evolving into modernity through new economic forces brought in by a certain class of people. The story revolves around the life of an "enlightened" modern Indian, Jagannatha. Violent and unexpected events follow Jagannatha's attempts to revolutionize everyone and everything by linking his own transformation to the changes he wishes to orchestrate. With its display of literary discipline in handling intertwining themes, the novel exposes the complexities of the caste system and the myth of social justice in modern India
Bhava by U. R Anantha Murthy( Book )

15 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A compelling tale of mystery, passion and spiritual exploration Seventy-year-old Shastri; a reciter of Harikatha, encounters an Ayyappa pilgrim on a train. Around the pilgrim's neck is a Sri Chakra amulet which looks like one that belonged to Saroja, Shastri's first wife. But Shastri thought he had killed Saroja years before, believing she was pregnant by another man. If the amulet is Saroja's, then she might have survived, and the pilgrim (Dinakar, a television star) could be Shastri's son. A similar story is revealed when Dinakar visits his old friend Narayan: either could be the father of Prasad, a young man destined for spiritual attainment. The interwoven lives of three generations play out variations on the same themes. Whose son am I? Whose father am I? Where are my roots? These mysteries of the past and present are explored, but there are no clear answers. And while significant in daily -being', such questions lose urgency in the flux of -becoming' (-bhava' means both being and becoming). So we are led to consider that samsara "the world of illusion and embodiment" may not be very different from sunya, the emptiness from which everything arises. At times a drama of cruelty and lust, at times a lyrical meditation on love and transformation, Bhava is an exceptional novel by one of India's most celebrated writers. -- Amazon.com

Hindutva, or, Hind swaraj by U. R Anantha Murthy( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born out of a meditation on the ideas of the nation state and nationalism, and what the new power structures and centres mean for the very idea of India, Hindutva or Hind Swaraj is a manifesto – written in the form of aphorisms, using shifting tones and styles to make a deep, elegant and heartfelt point about the human cost of radicalization. This last work of Jnanpith award winner and pre-eminent writer U.R. Ananthamurthy is a creative response to the rise of Hindutva nationalism in India. Juxtaposing V.D. Savarkar’s idea of Hindutva with M.K. Gandhi’s concept of Hind Swaraj, the book examines the two directions that were open to India at the time of Independence" -- Provided by publisher's website
