The narrative of the summary is very clearly stated. It is not just a summary but the real blue print of the whole novel. It is really helpful to understand the novel in a few minutes. I have corrected it. Thanks for pointing the mistakes. Wish you reading. Expecting your suggestions. Really very very easy to understand When I was trying to summarise it, I did not think that it was very important. It is easy to understand for those who never read this novel.. Really Thank you soooo much for providing us such a notes Why is Ratna's characyer not at all mentioned.

She too was a important character. Very brief and easy explanation. I find it much helful. It was really helpful.. Today is my exam and I was getting worried because of this novel But now, afted reading this summary, I am fully prepared. Thanks for the summary it helped me for my project A good presentation Thanks a lot I'm having my exam tomorrow and was finding the novel very tiring especially the names of the characters so hard to pronounce being flustered at the same time.

I read the first part of the novel after which I was short on my perseverance and sought to internet for help after which I came across your blog. Not only you did a marvellous job by stating the facts right but also maintained the quality of language which is equally important.

Thank you so much for helping students like me in the eleventh hour. Kudos to you! It's really good but it's just copy and paste No hard work you did for it Direct copy from Wikipedia.

Dear friend, I haven't copied anything from anywhere to write the post and Wikipedia doesn't provide a summary of the novel. If you are sure about your comment, please share the link. It is very helpful. And the role of Patel rangegouda should have been clearly referred. I was looking for detailed summary it's good but where is the description of the Goddess of Kanthapura and ending is so disappointed can't get the ending Ending should have proper words to explain but if one wants to read just brief summary they can choose this It is not a detailed analysis of the novel, but a synopsis of the novel.

The psychology of Moorthy needs to be clearly taken a look at with illustrations. It is very useful information and I understand the story of novel in brief ,thanks for that. Yeah,really it's very easy to understand bcs u used basic words of language.

Thank you. Rachanna was not important character in front of Ratna. As she becomes the leader when moorthy was arrested. And going according to novel moorthy was not the only one being arrested, with him Rangamma and Ratna also spend some time in jail.

But your summary is still helpful to understand novel.. Before Moorthy was arrested he started fasting 3 days after the 3rd day he was arrested. Gud one. Gave me a chance to feel d deadly bad incidents happened in d past n how indians fought nd won.

Novel started with some kind of caste provoking things later on d unity of being Indians. But finally it's a tragedy nd helplessness of d people those times.

Visit our website www. Kanthapura is a traditional caste ridden Indian village which is away from all modern ways of living. Dominant castes like Brahmins are privileged to get the best region of the village whereas Sudras, Pariahs are marginalized. The village is believed to have protected by a local deity called Kenchamma. A temple is built there, which later became the centre point of the village life. All ceremonies and festivals are celebrated within the temple premises.

Hari-Kathas, a traditional form of storytelling, was practiced in the village. Hari-Kathas are stories of Hari God. The narrator was arrested because of the political propaganda instilled in the story. The novel begins its course of action when Moorthy leaves for the city where he got familiar with Gandhian philosophy through pamphlets and other literatures. He followed Gandhi in letter and spirit.

He wore home spun khaddar. Discarded foreign clothes and fought against untouchability. This turned the village priest, a Brahmin, against him who complained to the swami who was a supporter of foreign government and Moorthy was ex-communicated. Heartbroken to hear it, his mother Narasamma passed away.

Bade Khan was a police officer, a non hindu of Kanthapura. He was brought and supported by the coffee planters who were Englishmen. Considered as an outsider, Bade khan is an enemy of the people who refuses to provide shelter to him.

Moorthy was invited by Brahmin clerks at Skeffington coffee estate to create an awareness among the coolies of the estate. When Moorthy turned up, Bade Khan hit him and the pariah coolies stood with Moorthy. Though he succeeded in following Gandhian non violence principle, the incident made him sad and unhappy. Rachanna and family were thrown out of the estate because of their role in beating Bade Khane. Meanwhile, Moorthy continued his fight against injustice and social inequality and became a staunchest ally of Gandhi.

Taking the responsibility of the violent actions happened at the estate; Moorthy went on a three day long fasting and came out victorious and morally elated. Following the footsteps of Gandhi, a unit of the congress committee was formed in Kanthapura.

Fearing the greater mobility of people of Kanthapura under the leadership of Moorthy, the foreign government accused him of provoking people to inflict violence it and arrested him. Though Rangamma and Rachanna were willing to release him on bail, he refused. He was punished for three months rigorous imprisonment. While Moorthy spent his days in prison, the women of Kanthapura took charge of the struggle for freedom. Moorthy was released later and he came out as strong as he was.

People thronged at his house were dispersed peacefully. Arrest of the satyagrhis, and police brutality to women became a part of the everyday life of the people in Kanthapura. Atrocities against women added miseries of the people. In the last part o the novel, it is mentioned that people of the village were settled in Kashipur and Kanthapura was occupied by people from Bombay.
