Magic Seeds by V S Naipaul

Magic Seeds by V.S. Naipaul

This novel is about life of a person called Willie Chandran. He had spent eighteen years in Africa and then in Berlin and finally he returned to his motherland India to take part in a guerrilla revolutionary movement to liberate the village people. After spending seven years in revolution movement and many years in jail he feels that this movement is not at all about the liberation of the people, the idea of individual is more important than the people for which he thought they were fighting. Willie finds many magic seeds, in the form of social revolution, and always tries to find his true life.

Over all its a good read. A good novel by a great writer.
