Book Description
About the Book
The actual significance of the word sahitya [loosely, "literature"] is inherent in the word itself. Sahitya is defined as "that whose characteristic is to move with (sahita = 'with') the trends of life".... The word sahitya can be interpreted in another way as well: sa+hita = hitena sahita, "that which co-exists with hita [welfare)". Where there is no inner spirit of welfare, we cannot use the term sahitya. The creations or compositions of those who proclaim, "Art for art's sake," cannot he treat as sahitya. ... Thus literature is that which moves together with society and leads society towards true fulfillment and welfare by providing the inspiration to serve. The statement "Art for art's sake" is not acceptable; rather we should say, "Art for service and blessedness."... Those who are inferior and neglected, helpless and destitute - whom society considers to be infernal maggots - are the very people who are the most unrepresented in the salons of literature. ... The sahityika or the artist has to take the responsibility of enabling them to rise up and sit in the same row with the rest of society, after dusting off the dirt from their bodies.... The range and scope of short stories are exactly the same as those of plays, but short-story writers must know the technique of presenting a long story concisely. Suspense is equally effective in short stories as in plays; dramatic skill is essential for the writer of those short stories which come in the category of sketches, because a sketch holds an intermediate position between a story and a play.
