Suragi is the autobiography of UR Ananthamurthy (1932-2014), author of Samskara, Bharathipura, Avaste, and such other contemporary Indian classics. He grew up in an atmosphere steeped in Vedic thought. In his autobiography he recounts how he grappled with questions of religion and secularism, orthodoxy and modernity, authoritarianism, and democracy. 'Suragi' is the flower that leaves behind a sweet fragrance long after its freshness is no more.
