A fitting tribute to a writer of note

Madhur Tankha

NEW DELHI: The late Kamleshwar, one of the doyens of Hindi literature, left a body of works that depict the trials and tribulations of a fast changing society.

He also wrote about people's search for new values in the face of the collapse of the old value system.

Besides writing about excessive materialism that characterises today's metropolitan cities, Kamleshwar also wrote about the woes that have befallen Indian society.

Unfortunately this winter Kamleshwar passed away, leaving a large multitude of book lovers sad.

Now Kamleshwar's collection of stories, "Not Flowers of Henna", in English translation will come alive at India Habitat Centre here on March 23.

It will be released by noted Hindi writer Krishna Sobti.

Born in Mainpuri district of Uttar Pradesh, Kamleshwar is counted among the best writers of recent times.

The Sahitya Akademi had remarked that "his utter self-restraint in experimentation both with technique and form lends a forceful character to his treatment."
