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.

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.

Thiru, UK
Thank You very much for this wonderful opportunity for helping people to acquire the spiritual treasures of Hinduism at such an affordable price.
Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
