"The present volume is an effort to offer a comprehensive understading of
intertwined relationship of history and literature. In the present scenario the flood of
historical narratives being penned down presents alternative history. The book is an
attempt for revisualization of facts through fiction. Despite the difference in terms of
approach the contributors in the volume have explored the concept of nation, identity and
culture through the multi-faceted lens of religion, region, language, community and past.
It is hoped that the anthology will prove to be useful to teachers, scholars and all
those interested in exploring varied dimensions of history and literature."
