Quick Overview

Here are 14 award winning stories whose common claim is only excellence. Selected initially by the editors of respected journals and magazines across India and published by them during 1987-1990, these stories have been nominated for the Katha Awards by people whose knowledge of their respective languages and literature is well known. The accent is on the inherent heterogeneity of contemporary India, an India constantly negotiating contradictions and coming-together, in fiction that both creates and breaks stereotypes. There is no attempt here to yoke together universal themes or basic conflicts, yet brought serendipitously together is a galaxy of master writers; the pioneers and the path-breakers.

Since 1991, Katha Vilasam, the Story Research and Resource Centre, has fostered and applauded quality fiction from 21 Indian languages in the voice of over 600 writers and translators, bringing the best of these diverse worlds to a wider readership. Katha books began in 1990 with Tamasha!, the children’s magazine and one Katha Prize Stories collection a year. Today, they have over 300 published titles, including picture books for children, novels, poetry, biographies, critical essays and commentaries, anthologies of award-winning stories from master storytellers, stories that subvert stereotypes and celebrate the glorious polyphonous multiplicity that is India.
