An Encyclopaedic Dictionary of Indian Languages-Literature

 
Mohini Gupta (Author) V P Gupta (Author) A N Kapoor (Author)
Synopsis The present volume strives to make a systematic study of India's literary heritage preserved in various languages of the country. A perusal of the book will enable the discernible readers to appreciate the fundamental unity of Indian literature. The write ups included in the volume provide authentic glimpses of Indian languages and literatures constituting a priceless possession for the nation. Indian literature is marked by its spirit of acceptance and assimilation. It has imbibed many features from other literatures including the western literatures. There is a fundamental unity in the literary types and expressions among all the modern languages and literatures of India. This aspect is one of the pillars of our nationhood and must be emphasized again and again. It is hoped that the present volume will be of some help in achieving this goal.
