Besides being a treasure trove for the literary, philosophical, social, economic, political, and cultural history of India, they have been the torch bearers to humanity for the perpetuation of excellence. Eminent Indian: Indian Language Litterateurs contains the profiles of Kalidasa (Sanskrit), Rabindranath Tagore, Bankimchandra Chatterjee and Mahasweta Devi (Bengali), Subramania Bharati (Tamil), Bulhe Shah and Amrita Pritam (Punjabi); Kazi Nazrul Islam and Mohammed Iqbal (Urdu), Vedam Venkataraya Sastry (Telgu) and Munshi Premchand (Hindi). Written in simple and lucid language, the essays included in this book provide the background and exposition of the creative works attempted by the litterateurs concerned.
