This unique volume of essays, conversations, poems, views and reviews penned by young scholars, academics, critics from various parts of India and celebrity writers and poets from distant USA and Africa offers an exquisite panoramic exploration of India in its myriad features and forms. If the spotlight in this special Re-Markings’number is on the proverbial “unity in diversity,” it is no less significant that it also illumines the dichotomies related to caste, colour, gender, creed, language, diasporas, religion, and insurgency that exist simultaneously with the notion of “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” (universal brotherhood) and “Sulahakul” (synthesis of religions). What is significant in this volume also is the attention given to the perpetual endeavour of those struggling on the margins and fringes of society to be accepted and assimilated into the mainstream life of the nation.Through insightful critical as well as creative appraisals of contemporary voices in Indian Writing in English, covering a wide span of space and time from the colonial pre-Independence era to the postcolonial and contemporary phase, this collection showcases the idea and reality of India in its wondrous multicultural dimensions, substance and shades.
