Indian Thought: A Miscellany

Indian Thought: A Miscellany
by R.K. Narayan
The short story of a literary journal... During the tumultuous days of the Second World War the literary magazine, Indian Thought, quietly made its appearance, marking the highlight of R.K. Narayans short stint in journalism.
As it happened, Indian Thought enjoyed an even shorter life: the War, shortage of paper, and problems with a recalcitrant printing press-all made it impossible for the journals fourth issue to see the light of day. And this despite the journals success. R.K. Narayan had envisioned a quarterly that would reflect the best in the new literature of the day-an ambition brilliantly realized-given that, during its fleeting appearance on the literary scene, its contributors included such greats as C. Rajagopalachari, M.N. Srinivas, the visionary Paul Brunton and, of course, the editor himself.
In this book, freelance editor and writer S. Krishnan has ensured, through judicious rearrangement and excision, that the early writing of some of India's finest writers remains as fresh and compelling as when it first appeared in R.K. Narayan's little journal.
