Description
Foreword

On a request from the Indian Institute of Advanced Study, Professor Shiv K. Kumar gave a silver jubilee lecture at the Himachal Pradesh University in 1991, the silver jubilee year of the Institute. At the same time, he agreed to come to the Institute as a Visiting Professor and gave three lectures. All these four lectures related to contemporary Indian literary in English: poetry, short story, novel, and literary creation and criticism. It was decided to publish them together.

Professor Kumar has brought his creative sensibility and critical acumen to bear upon a vast field of great importance to millions of his contemporaries in India and abroad. His treatment of Indian literature in English is sensitive and incisive. It is marked by a rare economy of words. Consequently this short book reads like a long poem.

I feel embarrassed to find this ‘thing of beauty’ dedicated to me. But Professor Shiv K. Kumar has exercised a right which cannot be denied to him.

Testimonials
Thank you very much. Your sale prices are wonderful.
Michael, USA
Kailash Raj’s art, as always, is marvelous. We are so grateful to you for allowing your team to do these special canvases for us. Rarely do we see this caliber of art in modern times. Kailash Ji has taken the Swaminaryan monks’ suggestions to heart and executed each one with accuracy and a spiritual touch.
