Selected Gujarati Short Stories
This book presents some of the best literary works of notable Gujarati writers. The western influence inspired early Gujarati writers to write short stories, however early fifties onwards, the Gujarati short stories have developed along its own independent course. They have evolved their own technique and symbols and used the medium of language in a manner that often conceals rather than reveals what their stories are meant to convey.
These stories are often like several impressions grouped together. A special mention may be made about the contribution of women writers - they rose above highlighting women issues in their works by reflecting a broad perspective of the condition of man in the modern world, his conflicts and the human predicament as a whole.
A collection of 20 short stories.
