Things Have a Way of Working Out (And Other Story)
Things Have a Way of Working Out (And Other Story)
Description
Back of the Book

Mulk Raj Anand writes about the Indians much as Chekhov writes about the Russians, or Sean O’Faolain or Frank O’Conner write about the Irish. At the time his manner is quite his own… Mr. Anand’s writing has an attractive sensuous quality. He somehow charges his pages with heat, colour, scents (or smells). He has, most of all, the touch, the power that makes the writer great he can give human weakness a dignity of its own.

 

About the Author

Mulk Raj Anand, born in 1905, was educated at the University of Punjab and at the London University. He began his career by writing for T.S. Eliot’s Criterion and went on to win international fame with his heart warming portraits of the Indian landscape and its working class. Author of more than a dozen novels, short stories, and critical writings, including untouchable, coolie, private Life of an Indian Prince, seven Summers, Death of a Hero, and Lament on the Death of Master of Arts, he was honored with Sahitya Akademi Award, the most prestigious Indian Award for literary writing, in 1972. He has held the Tagore Chair at the Punjab University and was the chairman of Lalit Kala Academy.

The volume is remarkable for the variety of its inspiration the virtues of a humorous appreciation of life little ironies and a sympathetic understanding of its tragedies is conveyed with a truly poetic intensity.

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.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

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.
