Abstract:

Willy Chandra is a man who has allowed one identity after another to be thrust upon him. Now, in his early 40s, after a wandering life, he succumbs to the demanding encouragement of his sister and his own listlessness and joins and underground movement in India ostensibly devoted to unfettering the lower castes. But seven years of revolutionary campaigns and several years in jail convince him that the revolution had nothing to do with the village people we said were fighting for, and he feels himself further than ever from his own history. When he returns to England where, thirty years before, his psychological and physical wanderings began, he finds the fruit of another unexpected social revolution and he comes to see himself as a man serving an endless prison sentence a revelation that may finally release him into his true self.
