Bapsi Sidhwa s intense and moving novel Water is set in 1938, when the traditions of colonial India were being threatened by the modern ideas of Mahatma Gandhi. The film - Water by Deepa Mehta was influenced by this Novel. What do think of this film and if read...the novel?

I have watched the film. Water film has touched my heart for its marvelous storyline and presentation. Water is set in 1938, when India was still under the colonial rule of the British, and when the marriage of children to older men was commonplace. Following Hindu tradition, when a man died, his widow would be forced to spend the rest of her life in a widow s ashram, an institution for widows to make amends for the sins from her previous life that supposedly caused her husband s death. Chuyia Sarala is a seven year old girl who has just lost her husband. She is deposited in the ashram for Hindu widows to spend the rest of her life in renunciation. She befriends Kalyani who is forced into prostitution to support the ashram, Shakuntala, one of the widows, and Narayan, a young and charming upper-class follower of Mahatma Gandhi and of Gandhism.
