গ্রন্থপরিচয় '300సి problems of all kinds and they crop up unconsciously when I write a story. I am very susceptible to environment and until and unless I am in the midst of a certain type of atmosphere I cannot produce any artistic work. During my youth whatever I saw appealed to me with pathos quite strong, and therefore, my earlier stories have a greater literary value because of their spontaneity. But now it is different. My stories of a later period have got the necessary technique but I wish I could go back once more to my former life. I have different strata of my life, and all my writings can be divided into so many periods. They express the sentiments of those respective periods. All of us have different incarnations in this very life. We are born again and again in this very life. When we come out of one period, we are as if born again. So we have our literary incarnations also. In my case the difference is so vast that I forget my former literary births and last time when I was reading the proofs of short stories of my early period, they had a freshness for me. They seemed to come from a shadowy past. There was some vagueness about them and I remembered the period of my early life like the girl at Delhi who remembers her past life. —Forward, 23 February, 1936
