About this Item: PHI Learning, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Today, Indian writing in English or Indo-Anglian writing has certainly come of age, with the novel having a pride of place and names such as Salman Rushdie, V.S. Naipaul, Vikram Seth, Kiran Desai, Amitav Ghosh, Arundhati Roy, and Arvind Adiga prominently figuring in the list. But the credit for placing Indo-Anglian writing on a high pedestal should go to earlier writers like Rabindranath Tagore, Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao. Among these, Mulk Raj Anand has a unique place because of the ideals and ideas he espoused through his novels. This concise book deals with Anand?s three early novels ? Coolie, Untouchable, and Two Leaves and a Bud ? and a few short stories, which were conceived, written and published during the colonial period ? the Raj. It also includes critical essays on such themes as Life and Art, Themes and Applications, Anand and His Use of Language and a study on the Women in Anand?s Short Stories. Dr. Ketaki Goswami, with her erudition and scholarship and research findings on Mulk Raj Anand?s works, brings out the quintessential Anand ? the messiah of the downtrodden, the unwanted and the unloved. For, Anand intricately weaves through his novels, the theme of exploitation and the apathy, the indifference and the condescending attitude of the affluent towards the marginalized sections of the society whose pangs and pains wrenched his heart. Anand?s life-long quest was to show love and compassion to the poor as also to alleviate their pains and give a magic touch to the downtrodden to make their lives bearable. In all the three novels and the short stories discussed in the book, the author shows that the novelist believed that the Summum bonum of a human being is living a life with dignity which has been denied to the lower castes and the outcasts ? the lower dregs of humanity ? because of the repulsive attitude of the rich. Being a humanist of the highest order, Anand concerns himself with the whole man, his development, sense of dignity and decency in living. This book should be extremely useful and invaluable to the students of English Literature who opt for the paper on Indian Writing in English. The academic community also will find reading the book highly interesting, stimulating and ennobling. contents Preface 1. Life and Art 2. Themes and Applications 3. Coolie: A Socio-realistic Novel 4.

About this Item: ABHINAV Publications. Hardcover. Condition: New. 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? This book is a gateway to the edifice of contemporary Indian Novel. Seller Inventory # AP-9788170172598

About this Item: 2017. Hardcover. Condition: New. 170 ABOUT THE BOOK:- Common to humans is their ability to respond to relationships and situations. However, each response differs from person to person even when the situations remain constant. The highlighting factors which govern a reaction, forms the focus of this book. The study amalgamates the Man Protagonists in all the novels of R.K. Narayan (1906- 2001) and the theory of three Modes of Nature (Gunas). In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna talks about the three Gunas - Sattva (goodness), Rajas (passion) and Tamas (delusion) that are 'installed' in all beings. It is the brilliance of Narayan's writings that he is able to bring to the fore the stark differences in the man protagonists, each under the impact of one highlighting Guna. This explains how the man protagonists think, respond and lead their lives. In addition, the study helps to solve the conundrum of life and answers several questions related to Self. ABOUT THE AUTHOR:- Roopa Shankar is a Child Consultant and the Principal of Little Scholars Preschool, Allahabad since the past twenty five years. She started the preschool in 1992 after completing the degree of Master’s in Child Development from Lady Irwin College, New Delhi.

About this Item: PHI Learning, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. Today, Indian writing in English or Indo-Anglian writing has certainly come of age, with the novel having a pride of place and names such as Salman Rushdie, V.S. Naipaul, Vikram Seth, Kiran Desai, Amitav Ghosh, Arundhati Roy, and Arvind Adiga prominently figuring in the list. But the credit for placing Indo-Anglian writing on a high pedestal should go to earlier writers like Rabindranath Tagore, Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao. Among these, Mulk Raj Anand has a unique place because of the ideals and ideas he espoused through his novels. This concise book deals with Anand’s three early novels â€" Coolie, Untouchable, and Two Leaves and a Bud â€" and a few short stories, which were conceived, written and published during the colonial period â€" the Raj. It also includes critical essays on such themes as Life and Art, Themes and Applications, Anand and His Use of Language and a study on the Women in Anand’s Short Stories. Dr. Ketaki Goswami, with her erudition and scholarship and research findings on Mulk Raj Anand’s works, brings out the quintessential Anand â€" the messiah of the downtrodden, the unwanted and the unloved. For, Anand intricately weaves through his novels, the theme of exploitation and the apathy, the indifference and the condescending attitude of the affluent towards the marginalized sections of the society whose pangs and pains wrenched his heart. Anand’s life-long quest was to show love and compassion to the poor as also to alleviate their pains and give a magic touch to the downtrodden to make their lives bearable. In all the three novels and the short stories discussed in the book, the author shows that the novelist believed that the Summum bonum of a human being is living a life with dignity which has been denied to the lower castes and the outcasts â€" the lower dregs of humanity â€" because of the repulsive attitude of the rich. Being a humanist of the highest order, Anand concerns himself with the whole man, his development, sense of dignity and decency in living. This book should be extremely useful and invaluable to the students of English Literature who opt for the paper on Indian Writing in English. The academic community also will find reading the book highly interesting, stimulating and ennobling. contents Preface 1. Life and Art 2. Themes and Applications 3. Coolie: A Socio-realistic Novel 4. Untouchable: A Journey from Despair to Hope 5. Rage and Humour in Combination 6. Two Leaves and a Bud: An Assessment 7. Gendered Assessment 8. Anand and His Use of Language 9. Colonialism and Literature Appendix: ‘A Parrot in the Cage’: A Study of the Claustrophobic Existence of Women in Anand’s Short Stories Index Printed Pages: 96. Seller Inventory # 13279

About this Item: PHI Learning, 2015. Softcover. Condition: New. 2nd edition. Indian Writing in English has proliferated over the last few decades and has made a huge impact on English readers. Not only do the works of Indian authors writing in English find a place on the best-seller list, they are also receiving critical acclaim across the world. Starting from Rabindranath Tagore, Sarojini Naidu, R.K. Narayan, Raja Rao, Mulk Raj Anand to V.S. Naipaul, Salman Rushdie, Vikram Seth and Amitav Ghosh, we have an array of writers adorning the literary horizon. All these writers have considerable following in the English speaking countries, and Amitav Ghosh certainly occupies an important place among them, and is much acclaimed for his literary style and content. One of the most prolific postcolonial writers writing today, Amitav Ghosh has received many awards: The Circle of Reason winning the Prix Medici Etranger (one of France?s top literary award), The Shadow Lines winning the Sahitya Akademi Award, and The Calcutta Chromosome bagging the Arthur C. Clarke Award for 1997. His later novels, Sea of Poppies, River of Smoke and Flood of Fire showcasehis capacity for epic narration, with each of these texts in the Ibis series, exploring the layered dimensions of identity and cultural form. This book, in its second edition, continues to be an anthology of critical essays, and deals with fictional as well as non-fictional works of Amitav Ghosh. It focuses on Ghosh?s idea and theory of the novel, postcolonial rationality in The Circle of Reason, nationalism in the context of Partition in The Shadow Lines, and the East-West encounter in The Calcutta Chromosome. Besides, it also discusses power structure operating within the narrative of The Glass Palace, and the question of space, identity and cultural difference in The Hungry Tide. Though different from each other, some of the essays take up common themes for discussion and offer new insights into Ghosh?s works. Printed Pages: 0. Seller Inventory # 108816

About this Item: Gyan Books Pvt. Ltd., 1988. Hardcover. Condition: New. English is a Window to the world today. Approximately 700 million people speak English as their Mother Tongue and in 33 Countries 300 million people use it as a second language. In 56 countries 100 million people us it as a foreign language. English played the role of the common Language between the British rulers and their Indian subjects as its being the official language of the Raj. It is still recognised as an associate official language. Indian Writing in English which started as a trickle in 1801 grew tremendously in the present century. It has produced such outstanding writers like Sri Aurobindo, Mahatma Gandhi, Sarojini Naidu, Jawaharlal Nehru, R.K. Narayan, Raja Rao, Mulk Raj Anand, Nirad C. Chaudhuri and a host of others. Sixty per cent of publications in India are still in English. No systematic and exhaustive Bibliography was available on Indian English. The absence of such a tool made the Study and Research in the area a time consuming and arduous task for scholars. L.S. Ramaiah has ably filled in the vacuum by his well-researched work. This volume is a professionally classified bibliography of all the writings on Indian English to date. All sources available in India have been consulted and compiled to make it as exhaustive as possible. Scholars, researchers, journalists, and lovers of Indian English will find the bibliography a worthwhile reference work. Contents: Preface Introduction 1. Bibliographies 2. Generalia 3.

About this Item: Audible Studios on Brilliance, 2016. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Unabridged. Language: English . Brand New. Featuring brand-new stories by: Annie Zaidi, R. Raj Rao, Abbas Tyrewala, Avtar Singh, Ahmed Bunglowala, Smita Harish Jain, Sonia Faleiro, Altaf Tyrewala, Namita Devidayal, Jerry Pinto, Kalpish Ratna, Riaz Mulla, Paromita Vohra, and Devashish Makhija. Bombay s communal riots of 1992 in which Hindus were alleged to be the primary perpetrators were followed by retaliatory bomb blasts in 1993, masterminded by the Muslim-dominated underworld. Over a thousand citizens lost their lives in these internecine bouts of violence and thousands more became refugees in their own city. In a matter of months, Bombay ceased to be the cosmopolitan, wholesome, and middle-class bastion it had been for decades. When the city was renamed Mumbai in 1995, it merely formalized the widespread perception that the Bombay everyone knew and remembered had been lost forever. Today Mumbai is like any other Asian city on the rise, with gigantic construction cranes winding atop upcoming skyscrapers and malls. It continues to have the highest GDP among Indian cities and one of the most expensive real estate markets in the world. Mukesh Ambani, the world s fourth-richest man, calls Mumbai home. As do seventeen million other people, for a majority of whom life remains a fine balance, to borrow Rohinton Mistry s description, between survival and penury, between lawfulness and maverick restlessness, and often between life and death. Right-wing violence, failing electricity and water supplies, overcrowding, and the ever-looming threat of terrorist attacks these are some of the gruesome ground realities that Mumbai s middle and working classes must deal with every day, while the city s super-rich, like the aforementioned Ambani, zip from roof to roof in their private choppers. Abandoned by its wealthy, mistreated by its politicians and administrators, Mumbai continues to thrive primarily because of the helpless resilience of its hardworking, upright citizens.

But the credit for placing Indo-Anglian writing on a high pedestal should go to earlier writers like Rabindranath Tagore, Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao. Among these, R.K.

It traces the evolution of all the genres of Indian Writing in English as well as R.K. Narayan the novelist. The book dwells upon R.K. Narayan?s art of characterization with reference to central male characters, use of humour, and the cultural milieu of Malgudi. It also discusses in detail R.K. Narayan?s standpoint regarding the actual social status of Indian women. Finally, the book focuses on R.K. Narayan?s use of myths and symbols and shows how these enable him to convey artistically the implication of the experience that forms the base of the novels. The book is meant for the undergraduate and postgraduate students of English Literature. Besides, all those readers who wish to delve deeper into the works of R.K. Narayan will find the book quite useful. Contents: Preface ? List of Contributors Part I: OVERVIEW 1. Introduction 2. A General Survey of Indian English Writings in English 3. R.K.
