About Das Capital: A tribute to Rajan Kothari

The story belongs to that region of this universe where slaves reside. Drought and floods are the only by-products. Ministers survive on riches they harvest from the relief funds. Administration celebrates in the times of Natural Calamities and get high on the dance and songs by the Eunuchs. A Corrupt official gets absolved of charges by purporting his wife as prostitute. Satraps kill the young and the innocent in cold blood. His goons kidnap a nurse while tending a critically ill patient and perpetrate rape in a public hospital.

What does our protagonist Purshottam Ram, under siege from the politicians and Government Officers do for Survival is Das Capital. What recourse will younger generations opt for is symbolized in Bhuletana’s outburst.
