Description
About the Book

The forty three stories, from twenty one language anthologised here reflect the diversity and complexity of life lived in India. From the Violence and Mass hysteria of the partition to the suppressed rage and the gnawing self – pity of individuals trapped in broken homes – these stories capture the outer and the inner lives of Indian society. The sacred and the Profane, the elite and subaltern meet in many layered narratives in these stories Providing us metaphors to visualise ourselves. These stories map an eventful century during which our country emerged into a nation. The images gathered here from the haunted interiors of the twentieth century are booth disquieting and illuminating.

Testimonials
Thanks again Exotic India! Always perfect! Great books, India's wisdom golden peak of knowledge!!!
Fotis, Greece
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 !
Steven, USA
