Description

The ancient values of the Neolithic and Paleolithic traditions still struggle to survive in a world of cold metallic civilization. Human symbiosis with nature has no place in the progress of such a way of life. Still life rolls on, over the debris of shattered dreams carrying the load of cumulative contradictions. In mainstream literature they are largely ignored, their hopes and aspirations, pangs and agonies are not communicated to the society at large. In Indian English literature I do not find them at all.
The contemporary literature also ignores those who hear and respond to the sylvan cry and find themselves alone and isolated, condemned and reprimanded and even jailed and killed for being anti-development. These stories are embedded on facts that I as an activist encountered during the last 45 years of my being among the characters of the stories. My experiences made me realize that life is more dramatic than action.
