Abstract
Delving into the world of Mulk Raj Anand's literary prowess, this article embarks on a captivating journey through the sociolinguistic dimensions interwoven within his novels, establishing him as a luminary in Indian literature. We navigate the rich tapestry of Anand's narratives, where language emerges as a dynamic reflection of the complex social realities spanning colonial and post-colonial India. In this comprehensive exploration, we discern the profound role of language in depicting societal structures, unveiling class distinctions, and portraying the vibrant diversity of Indian culture. Our analysis meticulously dissects linguistic variations, regional dialects, and the deliberate language choices of characters, illuminating how language functions as a potent tool for illustrating the multifaceted social fabric of the era.Through the lens of specific instances where language serves as a mirror reflecting deeply ingrained societal norms, this article underscores the intrinsic power of language in conveying profound social critiques. Anand's literary works transcend their temporal origins, persistently offering a nuanced understanding of linguistic diversity and the ever-evolving societal dynamics within the Indian landscape. By scrutinizing language as a conduit for social realities within Anand's narratives, we embark on a journey that invites readers to uncover the timeless relevance of his literary contributions. In essence, this exploration reaffirms the profound impact of language on both literature and society, shedding light on how Anand's words continue to resonate and shape our understanding of the multifaceted Indian context.
