Mahamaanav Sardar Gandhi, Sardar Ane Jinnah Vyaktidarshan Matini Sugandha
Since last seven decades of post independence era, we know Sardar Patel only as iron man. Almost two generations are passed and we are taught in the school text books only a few paras about Sardar. The grandeur and splendid job Sardar performed in his last five years of 1945-50 is nowhere narrated in the light of history we have today. The pain and disregard he suffered during these years are
not only pathetic but also untold so far. These are told here in the form of novel.

Irrespective of this form, this book is of historical research. It is a must read book by all true Indian. It is also translated in Hindi and English.
In 20th century those who have reshaped the history of Indian sub-continent among them three are distinguish personalities. Here the objective is not to compare them but to evaluate their contributions in the historical perspective.

They are 1) Mahatma Gandhi- who lead not only the country but even impressed the journey of the welfare of the mankind. 2) Sardar Patel- A man who integrated the nation and saved the balkanization against all the heavy odds and 3) Mohmmad Ali Jinnah – who not only divided the country but also instigated the people to destroy each other in the name of religion though himself had no relevance with religion.

These three characters are narrated in nutshell.
Around 20 essays are collected here in a form of monolog by the author. To read this book is an experience of flying in the boundless sky. The modern science can produce all the synthetic fragrances with an only exemption of fragrance of earth after first raining. These essays are like delicate carving on a seed of a rice.

Looking back towards the 60 years, where, when and how the literary career was manifested – the author narrates here the inside stories of the areas from where this journey was started. On the eve of his Platinum Jubilee the author was extracted by the editor and the result is compiled here. The early age innocence, the middle age analytical approach and the gentle search of the evening twilight are told here by the author in a very lucid and transparent manner. It is inside stories of the novels and the literary roots which ultimately blossomed (Compiled by  Pallavi Thakkar)
The sunrise is a beautiful point of time of  a day. The sunset is equally beautiful point of time. Similarly the old age is also as elegant as the childhood of human life. However to enjoy the beauty and the pleasure of the old age, one must have the proper understanding and also a specific vision. This book is comprised of 24 articles related to the old age issues viz. social, economical, family, psychological etc. This series was published in ‘Akhand Aanand’ and was responded by the readers, mostly senior citizens very enthusiastically. Some of them had expressed – If we would have read these articles a decade earlier, our existing life would have been different.. This book contains a brief  deliberation   on the emotions that mankind has perpetually   considered to be inimical.  Our ancient scriptures have identified  six types of  emotions as the   most  dangerous  enemies of mankind, viz. sensual pleasure, anger, greed, attachment, ego  and jealousy. The question that arises here is : Has a great man too, ever been  successful   in  completely   eradicating   even one   out of these six emotions? Can’t these negative  emotions   be  judiciously  tamed so as to change them into positive  ones? The snake’s venom too, acts as a life saving drug when administered in the right proportion.

Kalani Kasotiye Gandhijini Geeta- ' Hind Swaraj' Hun Mane Joun Chhun

Ayodhyano Ravan Ane Lankana Ram

Valmiki Ramayana is generally recognized as original Ram Katha. However there are number of other editions viz. ‘Tulsi Ramayana,’ ‘Kamban Ramayana’, ‘Kruttivas Ramayana’, ‘Giridhar Ramayana,’ ‘Adhyatma Ramayana’, ‘Jain Ramayana’, ‘Baudhdha Ramayana’ and even ‘Muslim Ramayana’. It is said they are 300 in numbers. All these Ramayanas have different stories of Ram and Ravana even contrary to each other. Here in this novel some very interesting episodes from these different editions are interwoven in such a way that a basic story of human being is reflected. Ram is a word    for positive element remains in the man and Ravana is a word for negative element also remains in  the same man. Ayodhya belongs to Ram, however sometimes even Ravana prevails there. And vice versa Lanka although belongs to Ravana sometimes even Ram predominantly prevails. This novel was serialized in monthly magazine ‘Kumar’


Kalni Kasotie Gandhijini Geeta-‘Hind Swaraj’

Exactly a century ago, in 1909, at the age of 40, Mahatma Gandhi  penned a number of universal thoughts in his mind in form of a small booklet called ‘Hind Swaraj’, which attracted attention from a number of thinkers of that era. Today, at the turn of the century,  this interesting book tries to identify which of Gandhiji’s thoughts have (or have not) been accepted  where and to how much degree and how much are we responsible for the state of affairs. Usually, Gandhiji’s  thoughts have always been evaluated at two extremes. Here this evaluation targets the communicative aspect as a constant and attempts to check the century old thoughts of Gandhiji

Hun Mane Joun Chhun


Categorically speaking this book can be called the writers autobiography but the writer prefers to acknowledge it in a different light as a leisurely journey cum memoir of self-recollection. Herein, the author has walked the tightrope and reflected upon himself after extracting ‘him’ from the ‘self’. Life forming and impression making situations, characters and incidents have been the source of inspiration of these memoirs. The series of incidents is not divided according to stages of life, neither is there a progression of personality. This is a story about ‘Me’ but nowhere am ‘I’ the central of action.  It is merely an analysis of the existential aspect of ‘myself’.

n whatever little time Man breathes on this planet, he doesn’t  develop   a conscious ground nor does he   sow it. Whatever his role is; he has to display a presence of understanding.  In this feeling of being  a witness, the author has provided a life sketch of his knowledge  masters.These aren’t the standard classroom teachers, nor are they traditional saints, dignitaries or cult personalities, neither are they parents or respected elders. This book talks about a few faces who have been able to sow something on the conscious ground. After years, the land yielded a harvest in form of this book.


Mahabharat Ma Manav Darshan

Mahabharat is like an ocean. If    we think that upon churning of      the ocean, we shall be gifted only   a horse, Airavat or Lakshmi, then   we are disrespecting the ocean.If we want to churn the ocean, we need  to be prepared to receive poison as well. Even poison has   its own  beauty, but we need a Neelkanth (Lord Shiva) to   visualize the beauty.  A series of articles based on Mahabharata were published in four leading dailies of Gujarat namely ‘Janmabhoomi’, ‘Fulchhab’,  ‘Kutch Mitra’ and ‘Gujarat Mitra’ and this book is a compilation of the same.

Speaking in Railway terminology, the up tracks are different from down tracks.  But sometimes, an up train has to be directed on down tracks and vice versa. To make this up-down switch, a loop line is facilitated at Railway Stations. Sometimes in life, two trains running in opposite directions meet each other at a loop line. This book talks about one such situation. One character is Renuka who has a dream, then there is Vishnubhai who too harbours a dream. And there is Aakash who is searching for a dream with his eye open. This novel was published in the weekly supplement of ‘Fulchaab’ daily. This book inspired the making of a Gujarati movie named ‘Rakh na Ramakada’.

Just like all religious texts in this world make a human entity, all the crimes are deemed merciful  keeping in mind the situations dependent on coincidence. Theft, Murder, Kidnapping have all found justification in some form of the  other in some or the other  religions text but the incidence of rape- involving brutal force on women has not been appreciated by any religious text. Whenever a woman becomes the victim of rape, she is placed in a tormenting and delicate condition. Without any fault of hers, her family and society starts looking at her in a different manner. This story narrating the life of a woman trapped in such grave  circumstances was published in a serial format in  ‘Janmabhoomi Pravasi’. A drama based on this book has also been staged.

Khelo Re Khel Khurshina


1975-76 is regarded as the dark days of democracy in India. The nation was engulfed in a state of Emergency. A new kind and   scope of politics had surfaced    and was spreading in all corners. This novel, patterned on the political premises in these troubled times was rejected by the editors of two weekly and one daily publication stating that if they run this in print then the government shall ensure that we run out of business.  After the end of Emergency,‘Yuvadarshan’ weekly featured this novel. Written with generous comic indulgences, this novel is actually a tragedy of our current political scenario.
