Transcending Boundaries: Indian Literature through the Lens of Translation

Author(s): Dr. Seema Rani

Abstract: Translation stands as a bridge that connects diverse cultures and languages, enabling the exchange of ideas, stories, and perspectives across borders. In the context of Indian literature, translation plays a pivotal role in not only preserving the richness of the country's literary heritage but also fostering cross-cultural understanding. This paper highlights the significance of translation in the realm of Indian literature. India's linguistic landscape is incredibly diverse, with numerous languages spoken across its vast expanse. Each language brings forth a unique literary tradition, showcasing a plethora of stories, philosophies, and worldviews. However, this linguistic diversity can also lead to a sense of fragmentation, hindering the accessibility of literary works beyond their native languages. Translation steps in as a unifying force, allowing works from various languages to transcend linguistic barriers and reach wider audiences. Through translation, the timeless verses of Rabindranath Tagore or the thought-provoking writings of Premchand can be appreciated by readers far beyond their original linguistic realms. Indian literature is deeply intertwined with the country's cultural, historical, and social fabric. It reflects the evolution of societal norms, belief systems, and artistic expressions over centuries. Translation serves as a means of preserving this cultural heritage, ensuring that the insights and narratives embedded in Indian literary works are not lost to time. It allows future generations to connect with the wisdom of the past and appreciate the depth of human experiences captured in these writings. The impact of translation on Indian literature extends beyond national boundaries. As Indian diasporas thrive across the globe, translated literary works contribute to the preservation of cultural ties while also nurturing multicultural identities. Moreover, translations enable Indian authors to gain recognition on the international stage, fostering literary dialogues that transcend geographical limitations.
