Saraswatichandra: Abridged

Govardhanram Tripathi (Author)

Saraswatichandra, a Gujarati novel by Govardhanram Tripathi, comprising nearly 2000 pages and four volumes was published between 1887 and 1901. The work not only manifested the sociological ambience of the latter half of the 19th Century but also traced the maturing process of the author's idealism that transcended from individual growth to universal emancipation. Its epitome-a Kathaa-saar, by Upendra Pandya-was published in 1951 and an abridgement-Bruhat Sankshep-was published by the Sahitya Akademi in 1960. The former, translated by Vinod Meghani, now published by Sahitya Akademi with the title Saraswatichandra (Abridged), is the first English translation of the author's work.

Umashankar Joshi writes in the introduction to Brubat Sanksbep: Saraswaticbandra's chief sentiment is Pathos. By sentiment, Govardhanram may be described as a sibling of Bhavabhooti in Indian literature. Conspicuous is the impact of Mahabbarata - on the call, constitution and several significant portions, and on details like the names of the characters. Deeply etched is also the influence of Buddhist literature. ...A study of Govardhanram's intutitive inclination explains his partiality for Dante, the renderer of a religious epic among the Western writers.
