on gods or places, it is baseless. Is it not a fact that creative literature
differs from the insipid reporting jargon? What all I wanted, and tried
consciously also is to animate or enthuse the readers by sufficient warming up
their beings. Nothing more nor less. It drew applause from many, and evoked
dislike in a few too. Anyway, it is a way, and that is my style, characterised
by luxuriant fancy, virulent expression and exuberant thought, remarking a
critic friend ended that intensity is its distinguishing quality.
one thing I have to bow to my readers unconditionally and invariably the
commissions of every type - some are, of course, the printers' called the
Printer's devils and many are mine can be termed as composer's ills, are
permeating in all books. It is inexcusable. I confess that I did not do justice
to my work, due to lack of time. And improper proof-reading too primarily.
