Product Description

When a society changes, it is the people who bear the weight of it
the most. This book brings together stories from people’s lives, as
they carried on their cultural legacy, weaving it with modernity and
Handpicked gems of stories by veterans in the genre of short story
– such as Amarkant, Bhisham Sahni, Kamleshwar, Nirmal Varma
and Mohan Rakesh – have been combined with works of younger
writers who became the torch-bearers of the forward movement of
the people.
Of special interest are the works of women writers such as Krishna
Sobti and Mannu Bhandari, who made sure that women were heard
and read – loud and clear.
A collector’s delight, MODERN HINDI SHORT STORIES, spans almost half a century of literary
endeavour in the field of Hindi fiction – a period of intense literary activity, varied in its approach
and wide in its scope.
