On the banks of the Ganges, the holy city of Benares groans and heaves along the fault line where modern India presses against its living past. Into this city comes in all innocence young Samar, to complete his university studies and take the civil-service examinations that will determine his future. An uprooted Brahman who bears the responsibilities of his caste but none of its privileges, obsessed by western culture, he is suspended between conflicted worlds. On his journey of self-discovery, Samar is accompanied by two guides: Miss West, his English neighbor whose circle of friends have come to Benares seeking a culture more resonant than their own; and Rajesh, an impoverished fellow Brahman and student leader who will show him the dead end to which that culture has come.
