The Music of Solitude
Description

About the Book

Krishna Sobti's The Music of Solitude is a novel about sharing solitude and growing old in a city that is at once keenly private and aggressively collective. This is as much a portrait of the changing times as it is the story of a beautiful romance that thrives on companionship.

About the Author

Krishna Sobti was born in 1925 in Gujarat, now in west Pakistan. She is most well known for her 1966 novel Mitro Marjani, an unapologetic portrayal of a married woman's sexuality. Her other important novels are Daar Se Bichhudi, Dil-o-Danish, Surajmukhi Andhere Ke, Ay Ladki, Samay Sargam, Yaaron Ke Yaar and Zindaginarna. She received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1980 for Zindaginama and in 1996, she was awarded the Sahitya Akademi Fellowship, the highest honour given by the Akademi. She is also the recipient of the first Katha Chudamani Award in' 1999, the Shiromani Award 1981, Hindi Academy Award 1982, Shalaka Award of the Hindi Academy Delhi in 2001, and the Hutch-Crossword Award 2005 for the English edition of Dil-o-Danish. Samay Sargam was selected for Vyas Sammaan, instituted by the K.K. Birla Foundation. She was offered the Padma Bhushan by the Government of India in 2010, which she declined, saying, 'As a writer, I have to keep a distance from the establishment.

Thank you very much for the Shri Yantra with Navaratna which has arrived here safely. I noticed that you seem to have had some difficulty in posting it so thank you...Posting anything these days is difficult because the ordinary postal services are either closed or functioning weakly.   I wish the best to Exotic India which is an excellent company...
