From the Introduction: Pandit Atombapu Sharma, Vidyaratna, Gaveshana Shiromani, a great scholar of Sanskrit, of Brahmanical Philosophy, a pious Vaishnava, versed in astronomy and astrology, a journalist and social reformer, was indeed a renaissance man. He was a veritable rishi of intellect, feeling and vision. Like draws the like and the great Indian scholar and linguist, Dr. S. K. Chatterjee understood him and paid his tribute to the great scholar thus: "His work in the religio-cultural domain even in the present age would easily recall the services like those rendered e.g. by Agastya in South India".

The rise of Shripad Krishna Kolhatkar was an important event in modern Marathi Literature. His impact on Marathi Literature was so great that the period between 1892 and 1925 is described as the Age of Kolhatkar.<P> His creative imagination not only enriched different forms of literature, it set new trends also. The plays he wrote proved to be the harbinger of a new age. His critical reviews helped develop modern criticism in Marathi. While evaluating his contribution to Marathi literature, Govindrao Tembe, the well-known drama connoisseur, described Kolhatkar as a 'pioneer playwright'; Kusumavati Deshpande, the renowned scholar, honoured him with the title of the 'father of Marathi criticism'; and the great litterateur N.C. Kelkar called him 'the high priest' of humour.<P>He is rightly credited with starting a new age in drama, criticism and humour; also, with only sixteen or seventeen poems that he has written, he seems to have influenced the modern poetic tradition known as Ravikiran Mandal. His contribution was recognized not only in the area of short-story and novel, but also in scientific subjects like Astrology and Mathematics.

Boarding School Seasons offers a revealing look at the strong emotional history of Indian boarding school experiences in the first half of the twentieth century. At the heart of this book are the hundreds of letters written by parents, children, and school officials at Haskell Institute in Kansas and the Flandreau School in South Dakota. These revealing letters show how profoundly entire families were affected by their experiences. Children, who often attended schools at great distances from their communities, suffered from homesickness, and their parents from loneliness. Parents worried continually about the emotional and physical health and the academic progress of their children. Families clashed repeatedly with school officials over rampant illnesses and deplorable living conditions and devised strategies to circumvent severely limiting visitation rules. Family intimacy was threatened by the school's suppression of traditional languages and Native cultural practices. Although boarding schools were a threat to family life, profound changes occurred in the boarding school experiences as families turned to these institutions for relief during the Depression, when poverty and the loss of traditional seasonal economics proved a greater threat. Boarding School Seasons provides a multifaceted look at the aspirations and struggles of real people.
