Gandhi Karan Sameer



The research contextualized CSH Jhabvala’s work and analysed it. It showed that Jhabvala’s approach was equally distanced from Enlightenment ideals of pure rationality on one side and Romantic impulses to return to the past. His work was imbibed with multiple dichotomies. It attempted to negotiate the young nation’s aspirations on one hand and necessities on the other. His work shows the turn away from the two set paradigms of high modernism and revivalism. A third, distinct strand was emerging: simultaneously local and international, expressive and pragmatic. This could only be made possible with the synthesis of Enlightenment and Romantic worldviews.
