RAM NIWAS JAJU is well known in cultural as well as industrial circles. Managers of industries marvel at how he finds time to maintain his interest in cultural activities. Litterateurs wonder how in the midst of prosaic and mechanical routine, he can retain his love of letters and remain a connoisseur. Associated with ‘Sangeet Kala Mandir’ in Calcutta he continues to act as a link between industrialists and men of letters. Four collections of his poems, viz. Bhavon ki Bheekh, Pyas Badhati he Gayl, Ghatanaon ke Madhya Men, Chattan ke Phool have been published to critical acclaim. As editor of Surabhika, a collection of the various forms of art, he has established his reputation as a man of many talents. This is his first ambitious creation in prose.
