The Inexhaustible is a translation of Sahitya Akademi award winning Gujarati novel Akhepatar. Akhepatar characterzies sheer courage and invincibility of human spirit on the one hand and alludes to the endless adversity that human beings, especially women of India undergo. The theme of the novel is a chronicle of the upheavals in the protagonist Kanchan's life. She was married to an enterprising Brahmin young man, who had migrated to Karachi before India was partitioned. The story unfolds the past on multiple time levels pre-independence era especially in the social-cultural turbulence it evoked and engulfed the family of man and a vivid portrayal  of the violent aftermath of the partition, the flight of the refugees who survived the communal strife, their bizarre movements, separations and reunions as well as socioeconomic upheavals they had to face individually and collectively and finally the era of development and renaissance that swept through the rural Gujarat, spanning on four generations of Kanchan's clan.
