Reaching the Other Shore: The World of Gopinath Mohanty's Fiction

Sitakant Mahapatra (Author)
Synopsis Gopinath Mohanty, the eminent Indian novelist, passed away in August 1991 after a brief illness. His Paraja and Amrutara Santan, two of the finest Indian novels since Independence, are structured on India’s little-known tribal world. The former received rave reviews when it was published by Faber and Faber in 1987, forty-two years after the publication of the original in Oriya. Amrutara Sanatn was the first Indian novel to receive the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1955. This little book is a perceptive over-view of Sri Mohanty’s world of fiction, its passionate human concern, its lyrical prose and its existential commitment to life. In the detailed interview we come to know this great novelist’s view of life in our times and his attitude to love and death.
