    StoryJam Kahani: Premchand's wife Shivrani Devi : Profile by Sara Rai

    StoryJam Kahani: Premchand's wife Shivrani Devi : Profile by Sara Rai

    Munshi Premchand’s wife Shivrani Devi was a writer in her own right. A very good one.

    But she disappeared from the pages of literary history. This was not unusual.

    As men, especially famous men, march on to capture whatever they set their sights on, their wives are left to pick up the detritus of daily life, with little or no time to think of etching their own name in history books.

    “Premchand : Ghar Mein” was written because Shivrani took it upon herself to write about the personal life of her famous husband. But who will write about Shivrani? Who will hunt for the many stories she published in magazines and books. Thankfully her memoirs are a mirror of her life as well. She wrote not just of Premchand’s domestic life but also of the strong and unusual relationship they shared. Of his immense respect and deference for her views and the ways in which they influenced each other.

    Premchand and Shivrani Devi’s granddaughter, Sara Rai wrote a moving tribute to her grandmother as a preface to the now re-published ‘Premchand: Ghar Mein’. In her words, she did it because no one was going to ever write ‘Shivrani : Ghar Mein’.

    StoryJam Kahani: Roshini Paani Jaisi Hai by Gabriel García Márquez

    StoryJam Kahani: Roshini Paani Jaisi Hai by Gabriel García Márquez

    Happy New Year from StoryJam!

    Starting the year with a little bit of magic, shaken and stirred with reality, only as it can be in the works of Gabriel García Márquez. He forces us to immerse ourselves in magic that is completely believable and makes us rethink reality beyond the price of rice and potatoes.

    A short story translated and narrated by me.

    Gabriel García Márquez, affectionately as Gabo or Gabito in Latin America, was a Noble prize winner and author of modern classics such as such as One Hundred Years of Solitude (1967), Chronicle of a Death Foretold (1981), and Love in the Time of Cholera (1985). Márquez won both critical and commercial acclaim and upon his death in 2014 was called the called him "the greatest Colombian who ever lived"

    Self driven and to an extent self educated, Márquez followed his instincts and his passion in a way few other writers have been able to. His style can be hard to pin down though he is most famous for his kind of 'magic realism'. His works have also been described variously as having "psychological suppleness" and being dichotomizing and exoticizing"
