Read full description of the books Kantapura:

Kantapura merupakan salah satu novel Raja Rao yang menjadi bukti keterlibatannya dalam gerakan nasionalis. Mengambil gaya penuturan epos klasik India, novel ini menceritakan gerakan kemerdekaan di Kantapura, sebuah dusun kecil dan terpencil di India Selatan. Gerakan kemerdekaan di desa itu dibangkitkan oleh pemuda bernama Moorthy yang pernah mendengar pidato Mahatma Gandhi dalam suatu rapat raksasa di kota. Digerakkan oleh semangat ajaran Gandhi, Moorthy kembali ke desanya untuk memimpin rakyat di sana. Pergerakan rakyat ini mendapat rintangan, bukan hanya dari imperialisme Inggris, tapi juga oleh sistem kasta, kepercayaan, kebudayaan lokal.
