'To whom may one dedicate a fistful of clay? One waits, one dreams, one battles, one moulds the clay into an image. Clay images do not last, but the joy is in the making of them; the earth's truculence is not overcome, but while the artist is savaged, a form has been created. The form endures." A collection of writing on Ajneya's insights on life and its many mysteries, Truculent Clay reveals the thoughts of a remarkable man, writer and freedom-fighter. Preparing the Ground Originally written in Hindi in 1975 and titled Antara, Preparing the Ground is a documentation of writer and freedom fighter Sachidanand Ajneya's contemplations on creativity. Allowing the reader to glimpse into the mind of the author, the book attempts to provide an understanding of the kind of questions provoked by literature that haunted the author as he wrote. About the Author Sachidanand Vatsyayan Ajneya (1911-1987) was an eminent Hindi writer, critic, journalist and pioneer of Indian modernity in Hindi, as well as a revolutionary freedom fighter. A harbinger of new trends in almost all genres of literary writings, Ajneya has written poetry, short stories, novels, travelogues, essays and poetic drama.
