Nimitta By V P Kale (Vapu)
We all have a gift of thinking and expressing, few of us have the capacity of putting thoughts into words, but the capability to express correctly and effectively is possessed rarely; Va Pu is one of such rare people. He is the most famous, loved and soughtafter writer in the history of Marathi literature. A writer always has a store of experiences within him, eager to come out; awaiting a vent. Not all of them are put into words. Yet, many of these experiences meet us as stories or dramas or poetry or novel; some or the other form of literature. Sometimes, some experiences refuse to appear in the recognized forms; but the urge to appear compels them to come out in some aesthetic form, innovative in presentation, unique in style, exclusive in nature. The work included under this title "Nimitta` which means stimulus comes under the above mentioned criteria. They all bear the salient features of Va Pu`s writings. They have certainly added to the treasure of Marathi literature highlighting him as a prominent author.
