FOOTPRINTS IN THE BAJRA a "first in Indian writing in English"

INDIAN LITERATURE (IL, 259), the flagship journal of Sahitya Akademi (national academy of letters, India) recently published a nice review of my book “FOOTPRINTS IN THE BAJRA”. The book completed one year on Jan. 20 and so, this bit came as a good gift.

The attempt made by FOOTPRINTS, said the reviewer, “it seems, is a first in Indian writing in English and must be considered very seriously…”! Nice.
There is no online version. So here are not so good jpegs of the scans:

But good people are more in number in this world. So, here is a link to Saborna Roychowdhury’s blogwhere she posted the pdfs of the same review. The two tiny links above the article are those pdfs, yes.

While at all this, I also urge you to read another review of FOOTPRINTS on Hansda Sowvendra Sekhar’s blog. Very detailed, very astute.
You should check out both the blogs for more literary fare. Good stuff for new or ‘old’ writers.
