Mukti Jain Campion celebrates the man known as the INDIAn Dickens and as the founding father of INDIAn Literature in English: Mulk Raj Anand.

His classic novel Untouchable was inspired by Gandhi but also, more curiously, owed much to his friendships with the famous Bloomsbury group in 1920s LONDON.

With readings by Roshan Seth
