Studying a creative writer conversationally and in moments much less guarded, one field facilitated in locating and appreciating his personal meanings of words and this in turn makes our appraisal of his works poignant. The role of interview with creative writers becomes all the more significant when they quite belong to us but originally write in languages not our own. In this context alone, this book which contains Ranavir Rangra`s interviews with sixteen modern women writers in twelve languages would attract our immediate attention. The interviewer strives to meet each writer on her own ground. None of the interviews in this volume betrays predispositions, studies preferences or even a passing platitude on his part to convey the impression that he is indulging in a verbal warfare to carry his own point. He sets the conversation so self-effacedly that, attuned to his work, the writer opens up on the creative issues vitally important to him. The book, perhaps the best of its kind on the Indian literature, presents scenes of cultural cross-roads in a vastly diversified society speaking different languages and learning to knit into a single whole. When self-righteous political programming in national integration may not succeed for want of a suitable state of mind, the pull of a joint creative participation as this one might work beyond expectation.
