Book of Proverbs Restores 'Collective Amnesia'

DARIEN, ILLINOIS: Proverbs remain an integral part of Indian culture. In fact, they even have proverbs about proverbs: "A proverb in your speech is like chutney with your rice," so goes a South Indian adage. Author Tonse N.K. Raju, M.D. brings such witty and wise sayings together in his new book Don't Stand in Front of a Palace or Behind a Horse, now available from 1stBooks Library.

As in other cultures, incorporating proverbs, similes, and metaphors into conversation is very common in India. However says Raju that "this trait is fast disappearing…in the sterilized tongues of urban societies." With this book he hopes to remind readers of the value of time tested sayings and, "restore our collective amnesia." With the ever-increasing amount of information stored on computers and in books, it seems appropriate to record these proverbs for posterity so that their messages and meanings can educate and entertain generations to come.

But, the legacy of the proverbs found in Don't Stand in Front of a Palace or Behind a Horse is much broader than the Indian soil they originate from. Besides providing a humorous introduction to some aspects of Indian culture, many themes presented in the 251 proverbs and 99 cartoons of the book are of universal appeal. With acute cleverness and acumen, Don't Stand in Front of a Palace or Behind a Horse has captured the spirit of a culture perhaps fading, but never forgotten.  

Author Tonse N.K. Raju, MD was born and raised in India. Now, with his wife and two sons, he lives in the Chicago suburb of Darien. He is professor of Pediatrics at Chicago's University of Illinois. Widely published in pediatrics, he has also written critically acclaimed fiction in Kannada, his mother tongue.
Artist Arthur Baltazar is a Chicago-based freelance cartoonist and illustrator.
