The famous writer Premchand tried to establish democratic values in his novel ‘Rangbhoomi.
The central character of his novel Rangbhoomi Surdas is a visually impaired beggar from a so called untouchable caste’. The very act of choosing such a person as the hero of a novel is significant. It makes the lives of the most oppressed section of society as worthy of literary reflection. Surdas struggles against the forcible takeover of his land for establishing a tobacco factory. The story tells us about industrialisation and its impact on society and people. The story of Surdas was inspired by Gandhi’s personality and ideas.
