George Yabu

The themes in this book and those in Dostoyevsky’s Crime and Punishment are closely associated through a harrowing, premeditated crime. The two novels were written about a century and a half apart; yet interestingly, the personal moral justifications of their characters’ actions just to get ahead within the rigid societal structure of 19th-century Russia and present-day India run eerily parallel.
