The Overtime People - Book By Joginder Shamsher
Introduction To 'The Overtime People' By Joginder Shamsher
"Far from home, in an entirely western society, quite a number of Punjabi Writers continue to write in their mother tounge, take the trouble of getting their work published, and produce something that is different because it is bred in a different environment and reflects different problems.
It is strange Phenomena that out of all the Indians who have gone abroad in search of better pastures, Punjabis are the most productive as for as literature is concerned. It is really phenomenal the Punjabis, who are known abroad as the most hardworking of all Asians and are considered to be the best and most productive workers even in the most abnoxious working conditions, are capable of producing truly vital literature, when they manage to do it, and how in anybody's guess.
The quality of their poetry, short stories, novels and general comments on various issues may not be first rate, but the strength, the vigour, the typical smell of dust and smeat and the original passion for life and love, is all their."
The author of this book has taken the account of the achievements of these writers. The articles in this book are not critical ones, but just a stock taking of their writings. The main purpose of the author is to introduce them to English speaking world.
