G A Kulkarni (Author), Translated from the Marathi by Vilas Salunke (Author)
Renowned Marathi author G A Kulkarni s translated work, A Journey Forever: Iskilaar and Other Stories, is about man's journey for answers to troubling questions after the loss of a loved one (Orpheus, Kairee: Raw Mango), or about the search of one s destiny (Iskilaar, Ahum: My Self, The Spot, Man or Monkey: Dead or Alive) in an attempt to understand if there is a way out of life's misery (Redemption, The Swami, Aqua Mum).

Yuganta, The End of an Epoch
Irawati Karve (Author)
Yuganta studies the principal, mythical-heroic figures of the Mahabharata from historical, anthropological and secular perspectives. The usually venerated characters of this ancient Indian epic are here subjected to a rational enquiry that places them in context, unravels their hopes and fears, and imbues them with wholly human motives, thereby making their stories relevant and astonishing to contemporary readers. Irawati Karve, thus, presents a delightful collection of essays, scientific in spirit, yet appreciative of the literary tradition of the Mahabharata. She challenges the familiar and formulates refreshingly new interpretations, all the while refusing to judge harshly or venerate blindly.
 
Jejuri
Arun Kolatkar (Author), Amit Chaudhuri (Introduction)
A sequence of stunningly simple but haunting poems, Jejuri is one of the great books of modern India. Jejuri is a site of pilgramage in author Arun Kolatkar's native state of Maharashtra, and Jejuri the poem is the record of a visit to the town -- a place that is as crassly commercial as it is holy, as modern and ruinous as it is ancient and enduring. Evoking the town's crowded streets, many shrines, and mythic history of sages and gods, Kolatkar's poem offers a rich description of India while at the same time performing a complex act of devotion. For the essence of the poem is a spiritual quest, the effort to find the divine trace in a degenerate world. Spare, comic, sorrowful, singing, Jejuri is the work of a writer with a unique and visionary voice.
