Excerpts from Kunvaree Mata:
In my this novel which shows glimpses of the current society, social life
and its internal attributes. I have tried my level best to show the
hopes and desires, will power and weaknesses of human mind.
As roughly there are five decades are passed after India got independence,
but the society is still not capable to overcome the social problems like dowry.
Same way instead of having great feelings o patriotism and discipline
(which is the backbone of a society and the nation) are set back by bad qualities
like irresponsibility, selfishness, hunger for materialistic wealth,
threatening others which are dangerous for a nation, its pride and its
future as well. The morals and ethics are there but they are found in a very limited circle.
I will consider it as a success of this novel if it is found (by the readers) blessful,
which is intended to finger out the bad qualities which are the great challenges
against the pride of the nation. As Bharat (India) is the ancient most country enriched
with the qualities of a great society like morals and ethics.
The character like Mamta who is showing her face in different ways throughout
the novel resembles some characters in the current society as well.
And these characters which are well aware of self responsibility are the great source
of inspiration during the darkness of hopelessness. I also believe that this,
a little bit character oriented novel will keep its value and found interesting to the readers.
