About the Book

It is 1936 and Savji is a wealthy, influential landowner who is heir to a vast farmland cultivated by generations of Kanjias since before the British occupation. Savji, who does not support the racist caste system, has a big heart, a beautiful wife, and four children. Unfortunately, his somewhat normal existence is about to be thrown into turmoil.

When the British decide to appoint a new Muslim king to govern this rural farm country, Savji becomes deeply concerned about the state of balance in nature that is being disturbed by the greedy ruler. After Savji confronts the might of the king, he is exiled from his home, left destitute, and forced to move to the city. Here, he discovers that there are far greater dangers in the men of ambition than there were on his utopian farmland. One fateful evening he is forced to step outside his character and commit a horrific act that will leave his family scrambling in desperation.

Dry Glass Eyes is the compelling story of a humble Indian farmer and landowner who wagers everything he knows and loves to confront the new ruler of his land.
