The Serpent and the Rope by Raja Rao — Story analysis

Reading and enjoying The Serpent and the Rope will be an incomplete effort unless the reader gets to know about the fascinating life of Raja Rao, the author. The footprints of his eventful life that straddles the East and the West are clearly visible in this absorbing novel. Rao had a long journey in life that started in the obscure south Indian town, (then a village) Hassan in the state of Karnataka. His education started in a Madrasha –the orthodox Muslim school where the curriculum is centered around the Holy Quran. Rao majored in English and History from the University of Madras, went to study French literature in Sobborne, Paris. Towards the last stage of his career, he was the Emiritus Professor in Philosophy at the University of Texas in America.
