Description

The Present Autobiography of one of the tallest figures in Indian literature is a valuable contribution not only as a literary text but equally importantly as a text relevant for socio-cultural understanding of the contemporary Indian society, in general, and of Punjab, in particular.

The story of a man rising from a poor family of carpenters to become through his sheer labour, struggle and self-belief a creative writer par excellence is a story that is not only inspirational but socially introspective too.

Though the author remained in dilemma for a long time whether he needed to come out with an autobiography as he tells us in the opening chapter, he has done a great service in allowing us to have an insight into the making of a writer and this English version will be able to carry this great tale to the wider world.
