Yayati by V. S. Khandekar
This is a collection of 29 of Khandekar`s recent stories. Our political, social, economical and artistic life is witnessing the destruction of our values under the name of materialistic development that is prevailing after the 2nd world war and independence. Social development is as important as personal development, mental fitness is equal to physical fitness and soul is important as hunger. Today they will make human life happy. But by running behind the materialistic prosperity we are ignoring the cultures essential for society and ourselves. Under this situation it is the responsibility of visionaries, social reformers and litterateur. Khandekar has pursued the values very artistically in his stories included in this book.
