PREMCHAND His Life and Times
PREMCHAND His Life and Times
Description
About the Book:

Premchand (1880-1936) remains indisputably the greatest writer of fiction in Hindi and Urdu. The established literary merit of his work is complemented by his historical importance as the fountainhead of modern Hindi fiction. This biography, originally published in Hindi in 1962, has been widely acknowledged as the definitive life of Premchand. It is an indispensable sourcebook for anyone who wishes to understand the originals and milieu of Hindi and Urdu writing in the twentieth century. The Hindi edition won the Sahitya Akademi award in 1963.

About the Author:

Amrit Rai was Premchand's son and the author of Several novels, as well as of a seminal academic study of Indian linguistic history, A House Divided: The Origin and Development of Hindi/Urdu (Oxford India Paperbacks, 1991).

Alok Rai is Premchand's grandson and Professor of English at Indian Institute of Technology, New Delhi.

Harish Trivedi is Professor of English at Delhi University.

Experts from Reviews:

'…the translator has preserved the quaint Indian flavour of the text… Premchand makes a delightful read. It is an excellent introduction to the India of the interwar years.'

-Asian Affairs

'Amrit Rai has done a commendable job in distancing himself from his father and presenting him warts and all.'

-Business Standard

'The translation is done with commendable skill.'

-The Hindu

Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
