This anthology spans almost half a century of literary endeavor in the field of Hindi fiction - a period of intense literary activity, varied in its approach and wide in its scope.

In making the selection Jai Ratan has not only chosen from the veterans in the genre of the short story, such as Amarkant, Bhisham Sahni, Kamleshwar, Nirmal Verma and Mohan Rakesh, but included younger writers who will carry the torch forward.

Of special interest are the works of women writers such as Krishna Sobti's Encircling Clouds, Rita Shukla's Agony and Mehrunissa Parvez's Borrowed Sunshine among others.
