Description

About the Author:

Padmabhushan C. D. Narasimhaiah, eminent educationist and critic, was educated in the University of Mysore and Cambridge and was Professor of English at the University of Mysore from 1950 to 1979. Rockefeller Fellow at the University of Princeton (1949-50) and Fulbright Visiting Lecturer at Yale (1958-59), he was visiting Professor at several Universities including Leeds (U.K.), Texas (U.S.A.), Queensland and Flinders (Australia). He is currently Director, Literary Criterion Centre for English Studies and Indigenous arts, Dhvanyaloka, Mysore. Pioneer of American Literature Studies and later of Commonwealth Literature studies, professor Narasimhaiah has authored several book-length studies like The Swan and the Eagle, Jawaharlal Nehru, Writer's Gandhi, Moving Frontiers of English Studies in India, and Indian Critical Scene: Controversial Essays. He is a true synthesis of Eastern and Western scholarship, and one of the most distinguished, sensitive and outspoken scholar-critics in contemporary India.

About the Book

An Inquiry into the Indianness of Indian English Literature, the text of the talk delivered at the Sahitya Akademi in February 2003 in the Samvatsar Lecture Series, examines the works of Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru, Vivekananda, Rabindranath Tagore, Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan, Raja Rao and Toru Dutt in a passionate yet objective attempt to establish the Indian character of Indian writing in English. The author studies their attitudes to life and language, their deep commitment life in India and their philosophical proclivities closely to define the Indian ethos at work in their writing while quietly dismissing some of the celebration of the celebrities of recent times in his ironic vein.

Testimonials
Your books arrived in good order and I am very pleased.
Christine, the Netherlands
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia
Love your website and the emails
John, USA
I love antique brass pieces and your site is the best. Not only can I browse through it but can purchase very easily.
Indira, USA
Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA
Love your collection of books! I have purchased many throughout the years. I love you guys!

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
