From the Editor of the Indian Express

Of People and Places

"One finds a wonderful writer in M. K. Kaw who can laugh at his own fraternity of bureaucrats.  Grand old men like P. D. Shastri and R. S. Dutta bring us all the wisdom of the past days while the younger academicians like I. M. Soni, Bhupendra Parihar, Anil Sarwal and R. P. Chaddah help us peep into the world of today.  There are a number of persons - Pritam Saini, A. L. Madan, Manjit Singh, Chaman Lal, N. S. Tasneem, Jyotishwar Pathik and some others - who keep giving us pen portraits of writers and artistes of the region."
