The Music of Solitude
Description

About the Book

Krishna Sobti's The Music of Solitude is a novel about sharing solitude and growing old in a city that is at once keenly private and aggressively collective. This is as much a portrait of the changing times as it is the story of a beautiful romance that thrives on companionship.

Krishna Sobti was born in 1925 in Gujarat, now in west Pakistan. She is most well known for her 1966 novel Mitro Marjani, an unapologetic portrayal of a married woman's sexuality. Her other important novels are Daar Se Bichhudi, Dil-o-Danish, Surajmukhi Andhere Ke, Ay Ladki, Samay Sargam, Yaaron Ke Yaar and Zindaginarna. She received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1980 for Zindaginama and in 1996, she was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Fellowship, the highest honour given by the Akademi. She is also the recipient of the first Katha Chudamani Award in' 1999, the Shiromani Award 1981, Hindi Academy Award 1982, Shalaka Award of the Hindi Academy Delhi in 2001, and the Hutch-Crossword Award 2005 for the English edition of Dil-o-Danish. Samay Sargam was selected for Vyas Sammaan, instituted by the K.K. Birla Foundation. She was offered the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 2010, which she declined, saying, 'As a writer, I have to keep a distance from the establishment.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.

It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
