"Saar Sansaar" is a Vorstellung of Dr. Amrit Mehta for those lovers of world literature, who want to read their literature in Hindi - in an undiluted form, where the original text does not come to them through the filter of English. This is a modest effort to restore Hindi it's rightful glorious place in the world, whereby Hindi readers do not have to depend on some English and American translator to decide for them, what kind of literature from various foreign languages they should read.

With the last issue of this year SAAR SANSAAR is completing 20 years of its exciting journey. These 20 years were full of struggle, ecstasy and enlightenment. There were financial problems, but the magazine also made innumerable new friends. Many eminent Hindi writers have raved about the magazine, have given their valuable suggestions. There were many, who, out of jealousy, caused problems, but the joy, which the publication of this journal has brought me, has helped me in forgetting all the negativity which came my way. The objective reactions of my readers, who have been reading translations rendered by me, my Editors and my Translators, have given me great strength. This strength has enabled me to publish each issue of SAAR SANSAAR uninterruptedly for the last 20 years – this issue in your hands is our 80th issue. On the completion of 20 Years of the life of my magazine I would await the reactions of my learned readers about its long journey, which should inspire me to continue doing my work with more fervour.
This Issue is a Special Issue with Austrian texts. Austria and its literature are very close to my heart. The published texts are young; most of them have been published between 2005 and 2013. The authors are Olga Flor, Marianne Gruber, Anna Kim, Andrea Stift, Linda Stift, Xaver Bayer, Clemens Berger, Arno Geiger and Andreas Weber.
