In this era of technological sophistication man is preoccupied with gadgets of every kind. The more he gets closer to machines, the more he is drawn apart from humanity. Trends in human interactions are, indeed, discouraging. More than ever, now is the time to propagate the John Donne catchphrase, ‘No Man is an Island''. Vikram Seth, the Indian English novelist, is a trenchant defender of human values who pleads for enduring comradeship and friendly communication. This book analyses the dimensions of interpersonal relationships in Seth''s novels and highlights the fact that he prescribes moderation, tolerance, rationality and self-discipline as essential prerequisites of long-lasting bonds.
