Description

Another year, another Katha Prize Stories. And this time, twelve stories showcasing different shades of human experience-through a silent song and a wild dream, through a mute keyboard and a city so grim. The best fiction from 2001-2003 in ten Indian languages, selected by a panel of distinguished writers and scholars.

Instituted in 1990, Katha’s search for excellence in Indian literature continues. With nominating editors all across the country helping us pick the best of India, and passionate translators lending voice to the unique stories, each volume of KPS speaks for itself.
