This anthology of papers presented at a Seminar organissed by the Sahitya Akademi in March 1998, takes stock of the Indian poetry of the five decades after independence, raise basic conceptual questions, examines paradigm shifts and interrogates the established canons by foregrounding marginalized voice.

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
