Description
Back of the Book

my face I a book charred by fire of woe,

my eyes like faded roses of hope,

and the urge to live

Is like a wretched person returning home

This is an unabridged English translation of Sahitya Akadenii awarded Urdu novel by Gian Singh ‘Shatir’, It is an autobiographical novel, which is a ruggedly realistic piece of work marked by a raw charm and lucidity of its own, In the forward the author writes, “I know my reality. That is why lam my own lawyer witness and judge. I am note prey to any perplexity while unfolding the mysteries of him. While talking about my sentiments, actions, mishaps and events, 1 have exploited the softness and stiff his of words equally because I wish you to feel the intensity of the storms of ecstasy and agony through which I have passed, the way I have felt them, so that you may be able to properly analyze my tolerance and neutrality...” For its disarming candidness, the starkness of creativity, gaminess of emotions and factual presentations of his life, this work is considered a unique contribution to the Indian fiction in Urdu,

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
