One of the giants of Hindi literature, Jainendra introduced the ‘psychological’ in Hindi fiction. Questions of love, marriage and relationships occupy much of Jainendra’s works, taking them into the realm of the internal and the intimate. In The Resignation, Jainendra tells the story of Mrinal, a young woman whose uncompromising idealism results in her family and society rejecting her completely. Almost seventy-five years after it was written, the story of Mrinal’s struggle against stultifying social norms and her fierce individualism remain startlingly relevant.



Author Bio: Jainendra was an influential Hindi writer of the twentieth century, and is known for his nuanced exploration of the human psyche. Along with Premchand he established the Hindustaani Sabha in Lahore and after Premchand’s death he became the editor of the prestigious literary magazine Hans. Jainendra received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1966 and the Padma Bhushan in 1971.
