Translation & interpretation
These stories bring life to rural and suburban humanity and their despair, zest, faith; in short, their life.
The stories weave a panorama of the fabric of life in a world where birth, death, grief, joy and anything life throws up, is accepted naturally and without a struggle.
We believe that this author would have a significant chance of making a mark, and in particular of finding favour with both the Indian and the Western reading publics, it is the fusion of cultures that broaden horizons and perspectives.
