Description

 

About the Book:

 

A generation after Premchand, the story writers that came to the forefront, among them Krishan Chandar, Rajinder Singh Bedi, Ismat Chugtai and Saadat Hasan Manto were most outstanding. Manto was a bold and unmitigated realist of his times. The sweep of his variegated imagination, his economy of narration and style and his masterly technique bespoke of elegance. He had a deep insight into human nature and a surprisingly keen understanding of human actions. Manto has, with dispassionate calm studied the tragedies and horrors of life, so horrendous that they could have even turned stone into water. Even so, he did not despair of the goodness of man, of his humanity and life-giving powers. He has concretized the experiences and observations of life in his beautiful, well groomed and powerful stories which leave one amazed. Urdu short story rightly feels proud of its enrichment and the pride of place in the field of fiction because of Manto's stories.

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...

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
