About this Item: Abhinav Publications, New Delhi. Hardcover. Condition: New. First Edition. 152pp. This collection of essays is meant to be a survey of the Novel in twelve major Indian languages during the period 1950 to 1980. While seeking to bring into focus the major trends and tendencies that characterise the growth of the Novel in these languages, the book atempts to explore the traditions being established in Indian Novel today and the new directions the Novel is likely to take in our languages. Gobinda Prasad Sarma convincingly shows how the Assamese Novel reflects the Assamese society and how experimentation with new techniques has widened the horizons of Assamese Novel: and K. Sivathamby, through a brilliant analysis of the interconnection between the societal factors and development of the Novel, portrays the rise of the Tamil Novel to new heights during the period. While I. K. Sharma shows how Hindi Novel has passed imperceptibly from the wonderland of fancy to the hinterland of society and the borderland of psyche?, Shyamala A. Narayan predicts a bright future for Indian English Novel on the basis of her assessment of such writers as Mulk Raj Anand, R. K. Narayan, Raja Rao, Manohar Malgonkar, Anita Desai and Arun Joshi. Jatindra Kumar Nayak brings out the tension in post-independent Oriya Novel between the idealism of the freedom struggle and the values of a commercial society; K. M. Tharakan describes the rich complexity hints at the possibility of a blend of post-modernist and leftist trends: and Ila Pathak shows how in Gujrati the traditional novel and the experimental novel are growing side by side. To Lila Ray, who traces the diverse trends in Bengali Novel, the most remarkable change is in the political novel; but to Prabhakar Rao, who describes the ?wide range of exploration? in Telugu Novel, the Telugu novelist ?appears unable to rise above the mediocre? Narinder Singh sees Punjabi Novel ?at the take -off stage but gives a word of caution against the increasing use of colloquial dialect by the novelists; Seshagiri Rao traces the traditions established in Kannada Novel by the writers of the Navodaya period, Navya period and the Progressive Movement. Finally, Balachandra Nemade, in his inimitable style, anatomizes the positive and negative trends in the growth of Marathi Novel and gives a passionate call to revolutionise criticism and ?cure Marathi of its present poverty of taste'.

The contours of individualism in the poetry of Kamala Das/Bhabani S. Baral. "Out of evil cometh good." One of the important consequences of colonialism in India is the birth of Indian English literature. The process through which it developed had three distinct stages. In the first stage there was admiration and imitation of the western models. After the first flush was over, a reaction set in. That was the second stage, the stage of resentment and rebellion. This naturally led to the third stage-the one we are passing through-the stage of self-discovery and self-assertion. The writers now draw on the rich cultural heritage of India and at the same time explore its contemporary relevance. A writer of an independent country cannot afford to lose touch with social reality and he must understand, transcribe and recreate it in verbal artefact. The task is rendered more difficult because the Indian English writers are obliged to write in a language they are not born into. But the writers have remarkably overcome all these difficulties and, looking at the achievements of the Indian English writers, it can be definitely claimed that Indian writing in English has come of age and has completely got over 'the anxiety of influence.'"The nineteen essays that constitute this volume cover a wide range of authors and subjects. Starting with Nirad C. Chaudhuri, one of the greatest thinkers and most controversial writers of the last century, the essays shed new lights on different aspects of the makers of Indian English literature: Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan, Manohar Malgonkar, Nayantara Sahgal, Bhabani Bhattacharya, Kasthuri Sreenivasan, Vikram Seth, Kamala Markandaya, Anita Desai, Arundhati Roy, A.K. Ramanujan and Kamala Das."Since Indian writing in English is prescribed in most of the universities in India, both the teachers and the students will find this volume very useful and anybody interested in Indian writing in English will also find these luminous essays intellectually stimulating."

Uma Parameswaran's The Door I Shut behind Me A Diasporic Text/Anuradha Verma. The word Diaspora derived from the Greek word diaspeiro literally means scattering or dispersion of the people from their homeland. Diasporic writing has been increasingly receiving academic and disciplinary recognition. It has emerged as a distinct literary genre. A large number of people have migrated from India to various alien lands under forced exiles or self imposed exiles. Some of them have made a mark in the field of writing. These immigrant writers reflect on the one hand their attachment to the motherland and on the other their feeling of alienation and rootlessness. The diasporic writings which are also known as expatriate writings or immigrant writings give voice to the traumatic experiences of the writers when they are on the rack owing to the clash of two cultures or the racial discrimination they undergo. Immigration proves a pleasant experience only to a few immigrants who succeed in assimilating themselves with new geographical cultural social and psychological environment. To most of the diasporic writers immigration is not a delectable experience. They often find themselves sandwiched between two cultures. The feeling of nostalgia a sense of loss and anxiety to reinvent home obsess them which find expression consciously or unconsciously in their writings. The present volume is a collection of twenty two research papers on the literary works of various eminent diasporic writers. They all voice the anguish of the people living far away from their native land and being discriminated on grounds of race colour or creed. The writers included in the list are A.K. Ramanujan Uma Parameswaran Vikram Seth Anita Desai Bharati Mukherjee Jhumpa Lahiri Rohinton Mistry Kiran Desai and Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Besides there are papers on the works of some emerging writers like Iqbal Ramoowalia Yasmine Gooneratne and Ann Bhalla. There is a variety of research papers on the literary works of these diasporic writers along with the articles on the theoretical aspect of Diaspora. The book will be highly useful to the teachers and students of English literature in various Indian universities as well as to the researchers particularly those working. Seller Inventory # 73718

The papers of this volume provide us deep insight into the problem of gender discrimination and environment in India during globalisation period and stress that women empowerment is much more than a matter of debate it is an object of action. The findings of these papers put emphasis on the fact that the government machinery alone is incapable of solving the problem not even mitigating it to any satisfactory extent and complete social overhaul of the outlook seems to be the only remedy to the mixed and vexed problem of gender discrimination and environment.

About this Item: Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 1999. Hardcover. Condition: New. Indian fiction in English now enjoys a major presence across the world. From its humble beginnings in the thirties it has come a long way to emerge as a serious contender to some of the most coveted literary prizes in the world. In terms of popularity and market presence it has experienced phenomenal success in the recent years. While it behoves well to celebrate its success and revel in its glory, we should also stop to enquire into its strengths and weaknesses, its achievements and failures and its present status and future prospects standing as we do on the threshold of the twenty first century. The underlying purpose of Indian Fiction in English, therefore, is to attempt a fairly comprehensive ?turn of the century stocktaking? of Indian fiction in English. The anthology puts together incisive and highly rated articles on almost all the important Indian novelists in English. Starting with the three pioneers, namely Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao, it goes on to include perceptive and analytical articles on the second generation novelists such as Manohar Malgonkar, Bhabani Bhattacharya, Arun Joshi, Anita Desai, Ruth Prawer Jhabvala, Kamala Markandaya and Nayantara Sahgal and finally, it attempts an assessment of the relatively recent entrants into the field like Salman Rushdie, Amitav Ghosh, Bharati Mukherjee, Rukun Advani and Boman Desai. Among the contributors are some of the most respected scholars in the field of English studies in India: K.K Sharma, Saros Cowasjee, Alastair Niven, H.H. Anniah Gowda, G.S. Amur, Ayyappa Paniker, M. Sivaramkrishana, Vasanth A. Shahane, Shiv K. Kumar and S. Krishna Sarma. Printed Pages: 316. Seller Inventory # 22323

About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd, 2013. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. This book, a collection of updated articles presented in an international conference on India`s ?Rural Transformation and Development: Issues, Processes and Direction` organized by the Cordia Group of Institutes and Sanghol community on 17-18 November 2011, talks about the criticality of different issues and challenges that the rural India faces and suggests ways and means to bring it into the nation-building exercise. No country steadfastly grows without tapping its rural potential. Over 750 million people live in the Indian villages and there is a desperate need for them to get empowered in education and skills, and with state-of-the-art infrastructure, financial support and guidance, better agricultural methods, energy/gas generation technologies, communication network, and by introducing and training on village and eco tourism. All stake holders ? the Government, NGOs, banks and self help groups ? have to play a pivotal role in ensuring sustainable rural development without losing the charm and the quintessential look of the villages. The visionary Inaugural Lecture by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam, former President of India, is igniting and the icing on the cake. The articles are authoritative, and few case studies, add value to the content. Concepts like Community Radio are of great interest. This book will help people who want to do investment in rural areas, students of economics and sociology, those in rural researches, and for those who have an ?urban heart? Contents: Foreword ?

About this Item: Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd., 2001. Hardcover. Condition: New. This book examines on the basis of empirical studies, the Rise of terrorism, secessionism and Ethnic Conflicts in the Beginning of the 21 st century in the entire belt of Eurasia. Though the contributors of this volume have conducted independent Research work on each country, they have followed interdisciplinary and multi-dimensional approach. As a result of this intellectual exercise based almost all of them have come to the Conclusion that it would be too simplistic to say that rise of Terrorism can be traced to one single factor, i.e fundamentalism. There is no doubt that fundamentalist Theology is being used as an instrument to disorientate and distort the consciousness of the people. It is this attempt, which has given Birth to the shrill cry of Jihad in some of the Countries afflicted by this menace. But this is only the hard top surface of this phenomenon. If you peel off this hard surface, and do strip mining, you come across various layers beneath the surface. These layers include the imperialist Policy of `divide and rule` in the Colonial period; accentuation of conflicts by the vested interests of the Cold War period; moral and material support including Supply of massive Military Hardware by certain foreign powers and above all the new nexus which has developed between terrorists, Drug mafia, illicit arms dealers and criminals. However, deprivation, poverty, unemployment and rising aspirations of the people provide a fertile Soil for these destructive forces. Third party interventions including military interventions on the pretext of Defence of human rights instead of resolving the crisis arising out of terrorism, cross-border terrorism in particular deepen it.

About this Item: D.K. Printworld (P) Ltd., 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. First edition. The volume deals with the civilizational dimensions of religion and culture in India. It underlines the point that religion and culture are important elements of all civilizations but it is their interplay that has given a unique feature to Indian civilization. The essays interrogate the various western sociological discourses on civilization and articulate the alternative conceptualizations available in Indian sociology. They underline the unity and diversity of Indian civilization, present the idea of civilization as conjoined with the idea of civil society and study the ecological crisis in the modern world. They focus on the dialogical relationship between tribal and non-tribal religions, link between religion and environment, religious philanthropy and Christian influence on Hindu way of life in India. They also delve into the concept of composite culture in India, scrutinising aspects of folk religion and cultures to show, for instance, how art forms get accumulated into the idea of culture. The volume will be of immense interest to a variety of scholars and students associated with the study of Indian religion and culture.
