Contemporary Maithili Short Stories
Author : Murari Madhusudhan Thakur
Contemporary Maithili Short Stories edited by Murari Madhusudan Thakur, is an English translation of thirty Maithili short stories. The book is truly contemporary collection of Maithili short stories published from the decade of the sixties to the last decade of the twentieth century, which can be compared with any group of short stories from any modern Indian language. Both, in experiences they embody and the techniques they use, they show a vigour, variety and realism that stand witness to their being rooted in the soil of the Mithilia region and to their truth to contemporary experiences.
