Description

About the Book

This book is an attempt to provide a bird's eye view of the efforts made by Indians in the past, to arrive at various strategies in the art of narration.

Without going into elaborate details about each of these strategies, it tires to highlight the awareness with which Indian storytellers have established very clear demarcations within the highly variegated panorama of the art and science of the Indian narrative, which has often been ignored or neglected by comparative literature experts, both inside India and outside. It identifies ten major models of narration, with occasional comments on their possible impact on the Western narrators. These models are: the Vedic, the Puranic, the Itihasa, the Srnkhla, the Anyapadehsa, the Mahakavya, the Dravidian, the Folk Tribal and the Mishra. The introductory chapter outlines the theory and practice of the narrative in India, while the concluding chapter discusses the relation between narrative and narratoloy. The Appendix briefly outlines the Asian narrative tradition.

Preface

This monograph presents the result of the research undertaken by me with a fellowship from the Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts, New Delhi.

I wish to thank the authorities of the Center for the facilities offered to me for the successful completion of the project.

My gratitude also goes to all the authors and editors whose works I have drawn upon and quoted from and to all friends and colleagues who have provided sustained inspiration and generous cooperation.

I should like to add here my deep appreciation of the facilities provided to me by IGNCA for conducting research in Indian literary tradition during the period of my fellowship- the travels made possible for the collection of data and checking of materials, the purchase of books on ancient, medieval and modern Indian narratives in different language, interviews with scholars, etc. After the preparation of the draft of the monograph, I was encouraged by the positive response shown by Professor N.R. Shetty, the Member Secretary of IGNCA, for the early publication of the work. I am grateful to him for taking immediate steps in this matter.

My thanks are due to Dr. Lalit M. Gujral, Hony. Advisor to IGNCA, for his sense of commitment and expert supervision of the printing of the book as well as his sensitive handling of the typescript. I also wish to thank my old time friend, Mr. S.K. Ghai, Chairman of Sterling Publishers, who are co-publishers of this book, for the quick and efficient manner in which he and his staff have managed to produce this book in a very attractive format.

The publications of IGNCA are an asset to the nation and a substantial contribution to the cultural heritage of India. I am happy and grateful to all concerned for having had a chance to play a humble part in this magnificent enterprise of cultural integration as well as the rediscovery and retrieval of the national tradition.

Testimonials
Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
Mary, Australia

Je vis à La Martinique dans les Caraïbes. J'ai bien reçu votre envoi 'The ten great cosmic Powers' et Je vous remercie pour la qualité de votre service. Ce livre est une clé pour l’accès à la Connaissance de certains aspects de la Mère. A bientôt
GABRIEL-FREDERIC Daniel
Namaskar. I am writing to thank Exotic India Arts for shipping the books I had ordered in the past few months. As I had mentioned earlier, I was eagerly awaiting the 'Braj Sahityik Kosh' (3 volumes). I am happy to say that all the three volumes of it eventually arrived a couple of days ago in good condition. The delay is understandable in view of the COVID19 conditions and I want to thank you for procuring the books despite challenges. My best wishes for wellness for everyone in India,
Prof Madhulika, USA

Thank you so much for your wonderful store and wonderful service. A Naga Kanya stat arrived yesterday. The sculpture was very well packaged, and it is very beautiful. I am very very happy with the statue and very grateful to your company for providing access to such lovely works of art. Thank you for providing truly beautiful objects and for providing great service. All the very best to you,
Jigme, Canada
Thank you! You guys saved me... there were no other options online for the book I purchased today that I needed for a specific course. So thank you for carrying the book and the easy purchase process. I look forward to receiving the books.
