Hasyam Sharanam Gachchhami

Shri Jyotindra Dave

Shri. Jyotindra Dave took the humorous literature in Gujarati to its highest peak and about 23 articles selected from his different books were edited by Shri. Ratilal Borisagar. The multifarious subjects and the style of the author make us laugh hilariously sometimes or make us smile for long time after we have read the articles. According to our noted scholar poet- Shri Umashankar Joshi, “Humor laughter and Jyotindra Dave are synonyms”.

Amavasya Ke Tare

Shri Kisansinh Chawda


These gripping and living caricatures (mostly autobiographical) were published in the monthly ‘Sanskruti’ which was edited by the noted poet author in Gujarati – Shri Umashankar Joshi.

These human interest stories were actually based on the varied experiences of the author himself and the characters depicted in these articles are taken from real life and are fantastic. The different characters created by the author have a distinct place in Gujarati literature.

Karsandas Manek

It is said “Bhagawat is a test for scholars”. Shri Manek has passed this test with flying colours because he has given new dimensions to all the narratives included in Bhagawat. Shri Manek is a poet, story teller, essayist, journalist and folk singer but the way he has given a novel focus to the Bhagawat in this book, he has established himself as a spiritual thinker of the finest order. The author has given modern meaning and references to Bhagawat and converted it into a new saga.

Harindra Dave

The plot of this novel, published in Gujarati in the name of ‘Mota Aparadhi Mahelman’ describes the deterioration of human values in the election based politics which has emerged in the post independence period. It is the novel that is quite shocking and also it is thought provoking. The atmosphere and the events in the novel may be imaginary but the reader identifies with experience that he has, in our election based democracy. This novel keeps the readers engrossed in deep thought over the country’s present situation.

Govardhanram Madhavram Tripathi

This novel is extended over four parts and even though this mega novel has been published a century-ago, it is still considered to be a Mile Stone of excellence in Gujarati literature. That era has gone and those plots are no more there but this novel is still fresh as ever. The essence of this novel is maintained in the condensed version of this mega novel, prepared by Dr. Upendra Pandya. This concise version by Dr. Upendra Pandya has been translated into Hindi. It is said the goethe’s ‘Wilhem Mister’, ‘Arabian nights’, Victor Hugo’s ‘La Miserable’ and Govardhanram’s ‘Saraswatichandra’ are four deities of four directions, sitting on the thrones as queens. The author’s experiences and treasure of knowledge can be compared to great ocean. The philosophical thoughts about religion of the author can be compared to Sweden Borg’s imaginative land or to the Sanskrit poet BanBhatt.

Himmatbhai Mehta

British government has created new boundaries after the partition in 1947 but we cannot imagine the number of boundaries in India if Vallabhbhai Patel had not strived. Sardar Patel was recommended as the first Prime Minister of independent India but Sardar Patel very quietly surrendered to the wish of Mahatma. He accepted the leadership of Nehru in a very detached fashion. This book is the short biography of Sardar Patel. People who compare Sardar with Bismark, often forget that Bismark’s activities were on a very small scale and he was quite cruel. This biography looks at the total life of Sardar in a very detached fashion and it is perhaps the first of its kind in Hindi.

Shunyavkash Me Pratighosh

Jayanti M. Dalal

Science stories are hardly written in Gujarati literature. However this novel is one of this rare category. In the initial reading the novel appears with social background, however it enters into scientific investigations and then very sensitive areas of terrorism, nuclear world war, inter religious integrity are opened.

Bharati Rane

Broadly speaking, this book can be categorized as a travelogue. In such type of book usually we read narration of the place, their beautiful locations, how to reach there and what are the facilities available etc. all these narrations are not here. Here we can see through the words seven European countries with their culture, history, social life and their peculiarities. This travelogue reminds us that a human being is basically always of the same nature.

When the eye sight is damaged, we say it is blindness. In fact when the physical eye sight is disappeared the inner sight(vision) of wisdom is opened. We know the story of Helen Keller but we do not know such another woman named Muktaben, who lost her eye sight at a very young age and then throughout the life she opened the door of the new world for hundreds of blind women. Here is a journey from darkness to light in a form of novel.

Here the curtain is opened and we see how the new generation of Gujarati short story writers express their approach towards the human relations. A man resides in the rural area or urban, his natural instincts are basically identical. Even if a science goes ahead the universal character of Human being does not changed. In these three short story collections the authors have balanced both the trends – traditional as well as experimental.
