Sanjvat by V S Khandekar
This is a collection of 7 stories. It was published after a gap of 56 years. Many thought that Khandekar has lost his ability to write. Some criticized him. But he was used to everything. He knew the limits of all the commentators. He was writing during these 56 years but he could never complete it. Through half written articles he used to think about the values and then used to stop writing the article. He shifted to Kolhapur during this period. While in Kolhapur he missed the seashore and the hills at Shiroda. Apart from this he had started writing scripts for movies. Then started the 2nd world war which killed the humanity. After a period of 5 years he wrote his first story "Maunvrat`. He started writing again but he was not satisfied with the new social pattern. He believed that socialism will bring happiness but for that the old pattern of socialism should be demolished completely. He tried to search for the new and virtues which would provide healthy atmosphere to everybody. He tried to attempt this through his stories included in this collection.
