The Heart Has Its Reasons
Description
About The Book

She's a quiet flame, a roaring sea. He's a restless wave, an autumn tree. Set in the Dilli of the 1920s, Mehak and Kripanarayan's love story threatens the seams of family and passion, as Kutumb the wife gropes of the slivers of a broken marriage. Three powerful characters, three distinct voices, Krishna sobti crafts a perfect wind cup that shields the flickering flames of love and life.

About The Author

Writer par excellence, Krishna Sobti's contribution to Indian literature transcends all cultural boundaries. Her innovative use of language, technique and refreshing delineation •of strong women characters have opened new vistas in Hindi literature.

One of the most creative and engaging aspects of Krishna Sobti's writings is her lively language. Her contribution to Hindi is immense. She has not only added a multitude of new words and expressions to the language, but also experimented with and successfully introduced new styles and techniques of writing. Krishna Sobti has a number of enthralling and exquisite literary works to her credit, which include Daar Se Bicbhudi, Mitro Marjani, Surajmukhi Andhere ke, Zindaqinama, Ai Ladki, Hum Hashtnat, Yaaron ke Yaar, Teen Pahad, Badalon ke Ghere, Sobti Ek Soh bat, and Samay Sarqom, amongst others. Each of these works have an unusual use of the Hindi language, highly coloured with the flavour of the region the story is set in, Punjab in Daar Se Bichhudi; and Rajasthan in Mitro Marjani.

Her writings cover a vast range of i sues, including partition, upheaval and turmoil in Indian society, man-woman relationship, feudalism and dissolution of human values. Her works have been translated into various Indian and foreign languages - Ai Ladki into Swedish and English, Sobu Ek Soh bat into Swedish and Urdu and Mitro Marjani into Russian.

She is the first Hindi woman writer to receive the Sahitya Akademi Award for her magnum opus, Zindaqinama. She is also the recipient of the first Katha Chudamani Award for Lifetime Literary Achievement, conferred on her in 1999. Other notable awards to her credit include the Hindi Akademi Award, Shiromani Award, Maithili Sharan Gupt Samman, Shalaka Sarnman, Sadbhavana Puraskar, and various fellowships including the exclusive Shimla and Punjab University Fellowships and the Sahitya Akademi Fellowship.

Krishna Sobti lives in Delhi and is currently working on a number of manuscripts including Gujrat se Gujrat She stays in our minds as a gutsy, indomitable woman who likes to live life on her own terms and who - as a writer and as an individual- has created a niche for herself in Hindi literature that is rightfully hers.
