Description

From the Jacket:

The Samvatsar Lectures are given every year as part of the Sahitya Akademi's Festival of Letters. The Samvatsar Lectures for 1991, printed in this volume, were given by Govind Vinayak Karandikar (b. 1918), popularly known as Vinda Karandikar, a distinguished Marathi poet, essayist, critic, translator and recepient of numerous awards including the Asan Prize and the Soviet Land Nehru Award. Vinda, who is now seventy-three, presents in his first lecture his views on what he considers as being the most significant aspect of creative literature. He designates it as a 'vital art'. In the second lecture, he turns to drama as a performing art and the cinema, and discusses them as vital arts or as 'comrades' involved in a similar pursuit. He finally distinguishes the group of vital arts from the aesthetic arts and practical arts.

His originality and the radical character of his thinking are evident in these lectures. He evolves a new classification of the arts, and there is, consequently, a change in their value and priority; this indicates the direction towards a new aesthetics.

Foreword

The Executive Board of the Sahiya Akademi passed a resolution on 24 February 1985 accepting the recommenda- tions of the Committee set up for the establishment of a series of lectures in literary criticism called the Samvatsar Lectures. A procedure was prescribed by the Board for the selection of the annual Samvatsar lectures. The Samvatsar lecturer is expected to deliver two or three lectures on a theme chosen by him. It has also been laid down that these Samvatsar lectures would be published after they are delivered. The crucial clauses in the resolution relating to the Samvatsar Lectures read as follows:

These lectures should reflect a deep concern for values. They should open up new vistas of thinking regarding a literary movement, a current literary trend, some original thinking about a great classic or a new path in literary criticism or literary creation, etc. The presentation should be from a larger perspective while the subject matter could be drawn from the regional or comparative sources within the speaker's experience.

I have great pleasure in writing this brief foreword.

Testimonials
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.

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 !
