‘Drawn from various strata of society, Munshi Premchand’s character create a community based on democratic value’. Substantiate this statement with two examples from any of his novels.
Munshi Premchand had the art of traditional storytelling. He was a very influential author. His novels are filled with major impacting characters inspired by society. He made a community based on democratic value by engaging and emphasising the disparity between the rich and the poor. Also, He makes the lives of the most oppressed section of society as worthy of literary reflection.
To explain this further the two examples are:
a) He wrote Sewasadan, a bold statement on the political and religious debate about child marriage and dowry system prevalent in the society. It depicts the ways in which the Indian upper classes used their power they got from colonial authorities to govern them
b) In Premchand’s Karmabhumi the social issues were discussed how political influences created differences among the family and had a great impact so far as the creation of social awareness was concerned.
