The purpose of the present study is primarily to view the nineteenth century Sanskrit literature in its cultural context. Seen from this angle, the Sanskrit literature of the past three centuries with its amazing wealth and many-sided growth strikes one as nothing but a glorious revival reflecting the intense patriotic fervour and nationalistic upsurge.The sources are many but in particular they...

The Legend of Nandan: Nandan Kathai

The Legend of Nandan is a superbly contemporary drama about a seventh-century hero, Nandan. A bonded labourer, Nandan is deeply discontented with his servile existence. Feeling threatened by his rise, the upper-caste Hindus deceive Nandan into submitting himself to a purificatory 'fire-bath', leading to his untimely death. This story can be interpreted as a saga of the suffering of suppre ssed people everywhere. It deconstructs the original legend of Nandan which are inalienable to Hindu culture, and challenges society's canonization of bhakti and religious fervour. Printed Pages: 102. View more info

About the Book The present book provides a critical analysis of all the novels and short stories of Ernest Hemingway, a twentieth century American novelist who got Nobel Prize for Literature. Hemingway is a writer of lost generation, of an era of chaos and disillusionment, but his approach is neither defeatist nor negative in nature; instead, it is something vigorously optimistic and positive in spirit. What Hemingway seeks to tell us through his novels and short stories is indeed important, but far more important is the way, the mode in which he tells us. It is in this course that a proper em...

Renowned Sanskrit scholar and passionate social reformer, Vidyasagar was the leading proponent of widow marriage in colonial India, urging his contemporaries to reject practices that caused countless women to suffer.
