Vrindavanlal Verma: Makers of Indian Literature
Vrindavanlal Verma: Makers of Indian Literature
Description

About the Book:

Vrindavanlal Verma (1889-1969) was novelist, short story writer and playwright and his contribution to Hindi literature is of a pioneering nature. He was perhaps the first Hindi novelist to insist on the authenticity of historical events and life depicted in a novel. He wrote in the language of the people and made effective use of the folk idiom of Bundelkhand. Three decades before the anchalik movement gained ground in Hindi, Vrindavanlal Verma wove his novels around Bundelkhand and immortalized in them the historical cultural identity of the region.

The Agra University conferred D. Litt. (honoris causa) on him in 1985 and the President of India decorated him with Padmabhushan in 1965.

Author of over thirty novels, twenty plays and ten collections of short stories, Vridavanlal Verma is most remembered for his historical novels. This monograph is modest attempt to present him as a maker of modern Hindi literature, mainly to the non-Hindi readers.

About the Author:

Rajeev Saxena (b. November 30, 1923, at Jhansi, U.P.) is a well known Hindi poet and critic. Also a journalist, he has been associated with a number of periodicals during the last four decades.

He has published one novel and some one-act plays, besides many translations of literary classics from China, Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia. He was honoured with the Soviet Land Nehru Award in 1979.

Rajeev Saxena knew Vrindavanlal Verma closely for many years and writes this monograph with critical acumen combined with an insight born of personal knowledge.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
My marble statue of Durga arrived today in perfect condition, it's such a beautiful statue. Thanks again for giving me a discount on it, I'm always very pleased with the items I order from you. You always have the best quality items.
