What the Reviewers Say

Kanda's efforts to bring Urdu to a wider readership have to be applauded when the language is being allowed to wither away either through the benign neglect of the authorities or by conscious rejection by the younger generation including Muslims. - The Hindustan Times

Kanda's innate love for Urdu poetry gives his work the much-needed soul that breathes life into something as spiritless an exercise as translation. - The Indian Express

Kanda's translation of Mir's poetry is 'beautiful' because it is faithful and fluent as well. Kanda has done much service to the Urdu poetry in general and Mir in particular with his beautiful translation. - All India Radio, Rajkot

K.C. Kanda's translation of Mir Taqi Mir's works will be of immense value to those who are unable to read the Urdu Script… The protagonists of Urdu language will acknowledge readily the dept of gratitude to Kanda for his pioneering and continuing work of translation. May his springs never go dry. - Deccan Chronicle, Hyderabad
