Pyara Ji Pyas
By Gobind Malhi
Pyara Ji Pyas depicts the spiritual odyssey of a woman, Mohini, stuck in a tormenting conflict between the cosmic principles and the mundane. The dehumanizing experiences which rocked the foundation of her life, by courtesy of the men from different social backgrounds she once crossed paths with, plunged Mohini into a state of disillusionment—the yearning for true love forever remaining unquenched. The whole story is narrated from the perspective of the female protagonist in a manner close to the stream of consciousness mode. The novel won the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1973.
