It is said that Mahatma Gandhi was inspired by writings of Tolstoy.If you already read he ovel, you an ot tell the characters- Katyusha Maslova and Nekhlyudov.Katyusha was born to a poor unmarried lady working in a dairy farm.
Katyusha Maslova, actually named as Katerina was thus brought up under the care of those maids and later worked as housemaid in their house.It so happens that on one ay, Mr. Nekhlyudov, a princes, and daughter of the old ladies comes to spend some time with his siblings.
There he recognizes Katyusha Maslova brought for trial for killing Mr.Smelkov for money.Katyusha was sent out of thi house of her grandmothers when she was found to conceive after meeting Nekhlyudov.
She suffers a lot trying to live like any normal lady but everywhere she encounters persons beginning to beset her and making amorous advances to seduce her.
She discovers how she was wronged.But when she sees the struggles Nekhlyudov faced to get her punishment reduced, the property and the royal life that he renounced, she lowly finds a soft corner in her heart.
When he complains that Katyusha did not like to live with him, he feels unwanted and ashamed.
But till the order in he society existed not because of these lawful criminals who judged and punished others, but because men still pitied and loved one another.Ultimately he finds his solace and also his goal from Bible.
People should abide by the five laws of Bible preached by Christ- One that man woul not kill and not even be angry with his fellow soldier.
