Another year, another Katha Prize Stories. And this time, twelve stories showcasing different shades of human experience-through a silent song and a wild dream, through a mute keyboard and a city so grim. The best fiction from 2001-2003 in ten Indian languages, selected by a panel of distinguished writers and scholars.
Instituted in 1990, Katha’s search for excellence in Indian literature continues. With nominating editors all across the country helping us pick the best of India, and passionate translators lending voice to the unique stories, each volume of KPS speaks for itself.
A fistful of gems to treasure and share with friends.
-The Hindustan Times
A brilliant and stunning patchwork quilt.
Each one like a polished jewel. Crafted rough yet honed to perfection.
An anxiously awaited yearly event watched alike by discerning readers in India and abroad as well as by writers, translators and literary journals.
-The Economic Times
Another testimony to the truly commendable work that Katha has been doing since its inception.
One of the most important publishing initiatives in recent years, Mr Rushdie’s bedtime reading.
Each Katha volume is a happy event, the readers are the richer for it.
-The Indian Express
The boom in the last few years in English translations of Indian fiction, owes much to Katha’s trailblazing effort.
Prize Catch, The best of India translated.
