Our Story

Our Story

Samyukta India Press (SIP) makes available publishing space for quality research work, creative writing and translations. We welcome books that revisit established tenets of critical theory and relocate received ideas in the ever-evolving field of Liberal Humanities. Researchers who keenly engage in sustained modes of production and dissemination of knowledge, are encouraged to submit their manuscripts that do not blindly accept ideas, but critically interrogate them. Enabling equal opportunity to all, SIP is committed to bringing the marginalized and the silenced into the mainstream of life.

Our Mission

The Press aims at consolidating the capabilities we have gained over the last 20 years in the domain of academic publishing. The professed objective of Samyukta Research Foundation is to provide a platform for scholars who are constantly furthering disciplinary boundaries through critical engagements in gender, culture and other related fields. For this purpose, SIP will bring out book-length studies, monographs and collections of research papers on a wide range of disciplines.

Marguerite Duras is a widely read and critically acclaimed French writer of the twentieth century. Duras is no stranger to India. Her “India Cycle Series” had India as the background. However, Duras’ works have not found a loyal readership in the country, maybe because of the deceptively scattered looking nature of some of her major works. Another reason could be that none of Duras’s works have been translated into any of the Indian languages.

This translation brings to those in Kerala, an opportunity to read Duras in Malayalam. Sreedevi K Nair has moved into the language, this intense story of love/pranayam as she has decided to translate the title into Malayalam, adding that delicate scent of the distant seas to Duras’ smouldering prose. It reminds us of a fresh and clear morning on a beach after a particularly fierce bout of rain.

Translator : Sreedevi K. Nair


T. Padmanabhan

T. Padmanabhan’s stories, pure poetry in prose, speak to our wounded and fragmented times with a life-asserting gusto and all-pervading empathy that is rare in contemporary literature. Stories: T. Padmanabhan which was released by Samyukta India Press in November 2020 is a collection of 30 world – class stories by T. Padmanabhan. These stories which breathe the little known culture of Kerala in India, efface an isolated, insular world view and celebrate a truly inclusive world of plants, insects, birds, animals and human beings. The volume is a fitting tribute to T. Padmanabhan, the living literary legend of Malayalam, the language of the small southern state of Kerala in India.

Translators : Sreedevi K. Nair & Laila Alex
