Deccan International Journal of Advanced Research Studies , 2013,
Abstract: The Paper is an attempt to critical study of the R. K. Narayana’s Novels in the context of the family relationships. The family relationship in R. K.

R.K. Narayan : A Typical Craftsman
Jitender kumar
Indian Streams Research Journal , 2012,
Abstract: As we know that R.K. Narayan created an imaginary place Malgudi in his works. And most of the novels and stories take place in this venue. Narayan depicted the Indian society scenario through his works on the land of Malgudi. Narayan's craftsmanship lies not only in the conventional life of Malgudi but also in the leaving attention he devotes to building up a real picture of Malgudi and its inhabitants. Malgudi is his greatest Character with its Mempi Hills, tiger haunted jungles, Natraj Printing shop, Jagan's sweet emporium, Johansian Character's like Mr. Sampath and Natraj. Narayan finds plenty of comedy in the normal life of Malgudi. His attitude towards Malgudi remains lovingly sympathetic. He loves to depict the traditional life of Malgudi with all its backwardness gentle-teasing and deep understanding.
L’enfant et l’Empire. Poétiques de l’Inde coloniale dans Kim de Kipling (1901) et Swami and friends de R.K. Narayan (1935), ou la littérature par l’enfance

Strenae : Recherches sur les Livres et Objets Culturels de l'Enfance , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/strenae.559
Abstract: Si l’enfant dans la littérature coloniale vient en général servir l’orientation idéologique de celle-ci, il peut aussi subtilement la perturber, comme en témoigne le célèbre roman de Kipling, Kim (1901) mais aussi bien une uvre de la littérature indo-anglaise qui évoque la lutte pour l’Indépendance : Swami and Friends (1935) de R. K. Narayan. Dans l’un et l’autre roman, l’enfant vient saper le dispositif idéologique et assure le triomphe d’une littérature non pas tant pour l’enfance que par l’enfance : l’Inde dans Kim appara t comme une spatialisation enchantée du temps de l’enfance d’où l’univers du colonat, très présent dans les Plain Tales of the Hills, s’évanouit, tandis que le protagoniste enfantin de Swami and Friends permet à R.K. Narayan de développer l’écriture distanciée, tout en ironie et suggestion, qui deviendra son style.

Abstract: The Indian English novel did not attain any noteworthy merit or standard at its inception. It was after 1920 that Indian English fiction began to exhibit signs of fictional maturity and wisdom especially after the arrival of the three “founding fathers” of this genre, Mulk Raj Anand, R.K. Narayan and Raja Rao. Since then fiction writing in India has taken deep roots with numerous writers contributing to it in many and varied ways. The thematic presentation became inimitable. The narrative technique and style had all the elements that go into the making of great prose fiction. Thus Indian English novel was able to stand shoulder to shoulder with any other global counterparts. The present study is a modest attempt to find out what it was that enabled the Indian writers to present novels with great literary quality, fictional maturity, vision and direction, and how and why it was possible for them to do so.

Révision de Jane Eyre comme métacommentaire philosophique dans les romans d’Anita Brookner Re-Vision of Jane Eyre as Philosophical Metacomment in the Novels of Anita Brookner  [cached]
Eileen Williams-Wanquet
Revue LISA / LISA e-journal , 2009, DOI: 10.4000/lisa.1879
Abstract: Although none of Brookner’s twenty-three novels to date actually re-write Jane Eyre as hypotext, Bront ’s novel is part of the pervasive intertextuality of Brookner’s text, addressed here as a monolithic fiction. This omnipresent intertextuality, which is the key to understanding the whole uvre, serves to define the moral codes followed by the heroine and to make a philosophical metacommentary on contemporary culture. Brookner’s characters read and comment on Jane Eyre, the heroine takes Jane as a role model of virtue and the masculine characters are divided into those who resemble Mr Rochester and those who belong to the same category as St John Rivers. But Brookner’s text is a re-vision of Bront ’s novel, as of other novels set in the tradition of the classic realist text and of romance, which have Cartesian rationalism and Christianity as philosophical underpinnings. Brookner reverses the poetic justice of Jane Eyre, which is re-contextualised to fit a new moral landscape in which God is dead as ultimate justification for virtuous conduct. Whereas Jane Eyre can ultimately be read as a “Victorian romance” which preaches reason in the name of social order, by replacing the traditional happy ending by an unhappy ending in which virtue is punished and by foregrounding the disastrous effects of suppressing passion in the name of reason or self in the name of the other, Brookner announces the end of a philosophical humanistic tradition in which the subject / object or self / other opposition gives rise to a host of binary oppositions, the notion of centre validating the dominance of one of the terms of the hierarchy.

Abstract: Dr. U. B. Narayan Rao L.C.P.S (Bom) (born 23 rd November 1895, died 14 th June 1960) had a busy general practice in Bombay. He adopted dermatology and venereology as his specialty in the 1930′s and started the Indian Journal of Venereal Diseases in 1935, the first of its kind in the subcontinent. This journal went on to become the official mouthpiece of the Indian Association of Dermatologists and Venereologists in 1955 and was then known as the Indian Journal of Dermatology and Venereology. Dr. Narayan Rao also played an important role as a founder member of the Bombay Association of Dermato-Venereologists as well as the Indian Association of Dermatologists and Venereologists. Activist, indefatigable worker dedicated to the cause, nationalist, and patriot, generous, dynamic and aggressive, with a flare for arguing; negotiating and convincing, and winning friends in the process, were some of the attributes that may be mentioned of this remarkable person who contributed so much to our specialty.
Comment on ``Reexamination of experimental tests of the fluctuation theorem" by Narayan and Dhar  [PDF]
R. van Zon,E. G. D. Cohen
Physics , 2003,
Abstract: Our result in cond-mat/0305147 that, instead of the conventional heat fluctuation theorem (FT), a new FT holds for heat fluctuations for a Brownian particle in a moving confining potential[Wang et al. 2002], was claimed to be disproved in a very recent preprint by Narayan and Dhar, cond-mat/0307148. This comment is meant to show that their assertion is not correct. The point is that they formulate their FT differently than we do ours. Effectively, their FT speaks about a physically irrelevant limiting case of our new FT. This implies that the two \FT s are not in contradiction with each other. Furthermore, we point out an incorrect assumption in their derivation.

Abstract: In order to understand Bharati Mukherjee's fiction and explore the image of India as reflected in her work, it is essential for us to study the biographical details of her life as they have a great bearing on her vision of life and her native country. She was born on 27th July, 1940 in a high caste Hindu Brahmin family of Calcutta, India. She grew up in an extended family of 40 members, including uncles, aunts, and cousins in the middle class area Rash Behari Avenue of Calcutta. Her father, Sudhir Lal Mukherjee, was a well-known chemist and researcher of repute who had studied in Germany and England. Her mother, Beena Mukherjee was a homemaker. Bharati and her two sisters got encouragement to get postgraduate degrees. Sudhir Mukherjee's ancestral home was in Faridpur and hie wife's native was in Dhaka, the two districts of Bengal. But at the time of the Partition of India in 1947, these two districts of Bengal became part of East Pakistan which later became independent as Bangladesh in 1971. It was due to the Partition their families had to leave their native districts and move to Calcutta. While exploring the image of India in Bharati Mukherjee's novel it becomes clear that has used Indian history in the form of some anecdotes in her novels and stories. She has fictionalized Indian history and it is very important in the context of the postcolonization and globalization. However, we find that she does not have adequate knowledge of proper historical and political events that shaped the Indian history. Therefore, her view of India is totally unconvincing and extremely superficial. Moreover, as she represents the elite society of the metropolitan society of Calcutta, her fictionalization of Indian history also reflects her inability to understand context of social, historical and historical events. She seems to be unaware of the complex postcolonial and neocolonial forces that were at work.
