SPIRITUALITY IN THE NOVELS OF RAJA RAO

Sulaxna Ahlawat

Volume: 1 Issue: 2 2011

Abstract:

Raju Rao is a famous Indian writer writing in English. Rao as novelist of spiritual dimensions is redemptive in the extreme. Deeply affected by the loss of traditional, cultural and metaphysical values, he dedicates his novels to a very deep and penetrating quest through fictional exercise. In the beginning of his novels, he delineates the feelings of patriotism and religion but gradually his wider, deeper spiritual outlook embraces them all and transcends them too as he does in Kanthapura. He presents a spiritual problem of man and also its worthwhile solution through an imaginative and emotional exploration of a particular metaphysical system. The Kernal principal of his novels, therefore rests in his quest for Truth-the Shiva in the ā€˜Iā€™.
