This book is a compilation of classic short stories by five great Indian writers - Raja Rao, Rabindranath Tagore, Premchand, Dr. Mulk Raj Anand and Khushwant Singh.

The collection covers an extraordinary range of themes, styles and settings, allowing the reader to get a glimpse of another world gone by.

4 Dhanpat Rai Premchand; Translated By Gordon C. Roadarmel; with a New Introduction By Vasudha Dalmia
Godaan (The Gift of a Cow)
Permanent Black; Ranikhet, India; 2005; 8178240408 / 9788178240404; First Edition; Paperback; New; 
Premchand is the most famous Hindi novelist, and Godaan is Premchand’s most celebrated novel. Economic and social conflict in a north Indian village are brilliantly captured in the story of Hori, a poor farmer, and his family’s struggle for survival and self-respect. Hori does everything he can to fulfill his life’s desire: to own a cow, the peasant’s measure of wealth and well-being. Like many Hindus of his time, he believes that making the gift of a cow to a Brahman before he dies will help him achieve salvation. An engaging introduction to India before Independence, Godaan is at once village ethnography, moving human document, and insightful colonial history. Out of print for many years, this translation is regarded as a classic in itself. Printed pages: 470. 031487

6 Premchand; Translated from Hindi By Lalit Srivastava
Karmabhumi
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195676416 / 9780195676419; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Premchand s Karmabhumi is set in the Uttar Pradesh of the 1930s. By the beginning of the 20th century, Islam and Hinduism had coexisted in India for over a thousand years, and barring the occasional outbursts of violence, the two religious communities had lived together peacefully and shared strong social bonds except marriage. English education, however, drove a wedge between these two communities. India of the early 1930s consisted of a great mass of poor and illiterate people who were exploited by the rich and powerful, irrespective of eithers caste or religion. The author s sympathy for these poor and toiling masses are clearly reflected in his writings. It is against this backdrop that Premchand wrote Karmabhumi. Being greatly influenced by Gandhiji s satyagraha movement, Premchand weaves this novel around the social goals championed by this movement. Human life is portrayed as a field of action in which the character and destinies of individuals are formed and revealed t hrough their actions. Some of these actions, which might seem melodramatic in ordinary realistic fiction, gain resonance in Karmabhumi, placed as they are within this symbolic and philosophical framework. Each character (or group) is depicted as coming to a point of moral awakening where he, she, or they must act on their convictions. The climax of the novel takes place in an assembly of the poor and dispossessed, where they voice their demand for land. The youngest of the speakers is put to death by a policeman s bullet but this incident eventually leads to victory of the cause of land for the poor. Printed Pages: 448. 014138

16 Premchand
The Illustrated Premchand: Selected Short Stories
Oxford University Press; New Delhi, India; 2006; 0195684184 / 9780195684186; First Edition; Hardcover; New; New; 
Munshi Premchand needs no introduction. In this collection, twelve stories from his oeuvre, carefully adapted and specially illustrated keeping young readers in mind, offer a vivid glimpse of life in the villages and small towns of north India. Each story is unique in its own way. ‘The Road to Salvation’ traces the theme of revenge and human folly, while ‘January Night’ is as much about the plight of Halku, a poor farmer at the mercy of the local landowner, as it is about the bond he shares with his dog Jabra. ‘A Catastrophe’ narrates the suffering of an old, destitute widow, and shows that bad deeds never go unpunished. ‘Penalty’ is a surprisingly short story about finding kindness and sympathy in a cruel world. ‘A Lesson in the Holy Life’ varies the tone of the volume with its humorous dig at fake saintliness. ‘Festival of Eid’ celebrates young Hamid’s act of love and sacrifice over the childish self-centredness of his friends. The self-appointed arbiter of correct social behaviour in ‘A Car-Splashing’ makes ‘good’ his escape in the end before himself coming to be judged. ‘The Story of Two Bullocks’ is a moving account of the close companionship shared between man and animal. ‘The Thakur’s Well’ exposes the cruelty of a caste-ridden society. ‘My Big Brother’ is a tender yet comic story about the changing relationship between two brothers. ‘The Naïve Friends’ looks at the misadventures of Keshav and Shyama as they go about trying to safeguard the eggs of a bird which has made a nest in their house. And finally, ‘The Power of a Curse’ is a dramatic tale of human deception, wrongdoing and its effects, and fear of divine retribution. The simplicity of these stories of everyday life and the accompanying visuals will delight young readers and Premchand fans alike. 027232

17 Premchand
The Second Wife
Orient Paperbacks; New Delhi, India; 812220418X / 9788122204186; Softcover; New; 
As an example of woman-centric literature which faithfully portrays its social milieu and era, The Second Wife stands in its own class. The novel marks the progress of the literary revolution generated by Premchand whereby realism and social relevance replaced the fantasy genre as central themes in Hindi literature.Charming and cultivated, the 15-year old Nirmala is married off to a middle-aged lawyer with three children... Human emotions like suspicion, compassion, jealousy, regret, anger and insecurity interplay with each other to give the novel its own ruthless logic which carries it forward to the ultimate tragedy.This book, titled Nirmala in Hindi, is the most recommended of Premchand's novels because of its narrative force and literary quality.The translator, Dr. David Rubin, American scholar and novelist, received his Doctorate in Comparative Literature at Columbia University, USA, and later taught Hindi literature at the same university.Printed Pages: 208. 106659
