This novel represents the saddening story of the `devdasi` tribe. What is a devdasi? It is a tradition created by people with evil intentions for their own benefits. She is a victim to misconceptions, wrong traditions, so called religion, all created in the name of the god. A devdasi is offered to the god and thus becomes a public property. Any male member can claim her. She falls prey to the harassment of the people. This novel presents a true picture of her torture in the name of traditions. The author has presented the anguish through `Suli`, the main character. He neatly and immaculately presents the various aspects of a female mind, the language, the feelings, etc. `Chaundak` should be recognized as a novel penetrating the real facts of the life of a `devdasi`.
