This sheaf of nineteen short stories, written by different authors, represents a cross-section of contemporary Indian short fiction. Eighteen short stories are translations from eighteen modern languages of India and one is a specimen pf Indian creative writing in English.
Selected by the Sahitya Akademi's Advisory Boards of various languages, these stories provide fascinating glimpses into the panorama of Indian life, with its baffling variety, its rich contrast of the simple and the sophisticated, the ancient and the modern. Here is evidence, if such were needed, that Indian literature is one through written in many languages its oneness consisting not of a stale uniformity but of a rich variety.
