"साहित्य अकादमी पारितोषिक" विजेत्या श्रेष्ठ कादंबरीचा अनुवाद
तू आमचे नेतृत्व कर, असं म्हणून भास्करनं आपल्या हाततातील मशाल सुमीतच्या हाती दिली.
गांधीग्रामध्ये प्रवेश करता करता तिच्या हातातील कंदील आपल्या हातात घेतला ...
त्याच्या मनात आलं की, आपल्या ओळखीची सुमीता ही नव्हे ...

प्रथम आपल्याला गावच्या सडकेवर दिसली,
ती ही नव्हे ...
त्या जुन्या देवळाबाहेर पडताच थोडी अधिक शहाणी झालेली, ती ही नव्हेच ...
हिच्यात नेमका कोणता बदल झालेला आहे, हे त्याला सांगता येत नव्हतं;
पण आत्ताची सुमीता ही नवी होती, एक चमत्कार होता ...

मूळ भारतीय लेखक - डॉ. बी. भट्टाचार्य
अनुवाद - व्यंकटेश माडगूळकर

In his fourth novel (Music for Mohini, He Who Rides a Tiger, A Goddess Named Gold), Bhabani Bhattacharya characterizes the confrontation of variant forces in Indian life today. Bhashkar Roy, trained in America, returns to his country to set up a steel plant in a village where Gandhigram, a community dedicated to handicrafts and the ideals of the late great leader, is run by the spiritually advanced Satyajit. The Chinese invasion of Ladakh strengthens the stand of both men in their opposition: Bhashkar with his new industrial look, Satyajit with his old spiritual weapons. Satyajit plans a peace mission, at last makes a fast to win Gandhigram the right to remain where it is. The outcome, a decision to co-exist, takes on personal meaning as Bhashkar frees Satyajit's daughter Sumita from the harsh ascetic demands of the community and awakens her to love. Bhattacharya's style is not subtle, nor is the working of his story. He plies a direct masculine prose, has an eye for the relations of men and women, and writes at an entertainment level. Despite its theme, the story lacks the weight and poise of much writing coming out of India today, but it is very readable.
