Kamat's Three Books

Reprint of Dr. Krishnand Kamat's Three Books

The month of March has been joyful for the Kamat family. Kamat's three books in Kannada have been republished.

Noteworthy is the republication of Vangadarshana a travelogue on West Bengal, where Kamat had troublesome time for two years (1969-1971). He was there when Naxalism made its first ugly appearance of violence & loot in the name Marxist-Leninist Communism in West Bengal. It was also the time ripe for Bangladesh to secede from Pakistan, to emerge as an independent nation. Kamat has given first person account of his Bengal stay in Vangadarshana, which appeared in March 1972, exactly 36 years ago. The Government of Karnataka has reprinted it now as one of classics of one hundred books, on the occasion of Golden jubilee of formation of Karnataka State.

The other two books reprinted are 1) Bastar Pravasa, (1991) a travelogue on tribal life in Bastar of Madhya Pradesh and 2) Sasya Parisara, or "The Plant world around us". Both are brought out by Nava-Karnataka, leading publishers of Karnataka. Bastar Pravasa was out in December 2007 and Sasya Parisara, just now (March 2008).

Life of people in tribal belt and adjacent to forest has been fast changing almost alarmingly. The publication of all three books shows all time relevance of Kamat�s writings. The books are priced moderately, at Rs. 65/- a copy and Vangadarshna at Rs. 25/-.
