Chaman Nahal’s The Crown and the Loincloth, which is divided into three parts as “loveâ€; “perspective†and “affirmative†is the first volume of The Gandhi Quartet which is set against the backdrop of the turbulent times of 1915 to 1922. Historically, this is the period that covers the tremulous first phase of the agitation for independence which concentrates  on historical movements such as the non-violence and non-cooperation movement.  This novel can be  compared with  the Raj Quartet of Paul Scott, the detailed account of the episode of the British Raj in India; imperial embrace as well about the passionate relationship between Britain and India  between 1942 to   1947.This novel is certainly emanated from the author’s experience to understand the hidden meanings of serial occurrences that eventually led India to India’s independence accompanied by India’s partition.
