Details: Product Description The Hindi short story is one of the most exciting genres in modern Indian literature. The fifteen stories in this volume, by some of the most prominent writers in the field, provide a unique picture of the country today. Most of the stories focus on urban middle-class individuals and especially those whose lives are marked by alienation and loneliness. They highlight the disruptions caused in a society that is modernizing at a rapid pace while still being blessed and burdened by a strong sense of traditional morality, duty and family ties. Among the writers included in this volume are Kamleshwar, Nirmal Verma, phanishwarnath ‘br>Renu’, Krishna Baldev vain and Mohun br> Rakesh. About the Author The late Gordon C. Roadarmel, whose earlier translations from Hindi include The Gift of a Cow by Premchand and To Each His Stranger by Agyeya, taught Hindi language and literature at the University of California, Berkeley.
