Description

 

From the Jacket:

 

The eminent Hindi novelist, Jainendra Kumar, hailed Jaishankar Prasad as "the first great freethinker of our literature." The philosophy of Prasad is a heroic attempt to harmonize the ethical and the aesthetic, the pragmatic and the mystic insights into life that have been earned and lost and retrieved again and again in the course of Indian history. His poetic imagination is always controlled and moulded by his first-hand observations and experiences of life. His fiction and drama, for all their romantic and mystical atmosphere, are built on the foundations of a profound psychological realism.

In this first ever monograph written in English on Jaishankar Prasad - poet, playwright, novelist and short story writer - Ramesh Chandra Shah places him in the historical perspective, gives an account of his life and leads the reader to a better appreciation of his entire oeuvre.

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

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

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,
