Abstract Anandam

In Devanagari by HindiRinnyLeave a Comment

Andandam, Published by Amrit Rai. 1977. From the Chicago Public Library. 

आनन्दम्  Anandam, by अमृत राय Amrit Rai; a book of “comic satire, essays, and stories”. I’m going to be honest — it took me a minute to figure out what that title said. The semi-stemmed न and म threw me for a minute (but probably because I’ve been looking at a lot Tamil lately!). A rather abstract bit of lettering!

Wikipedia tells me that Amrit Rai was an Urdu/Hindi writer and biographer, and son of celebrated author, Premchand.
