Well known for his work Panipat (a novel about the Third Battle of Panipat), Patil exhibits not only a deep understanding of the past but also great mastery at storytelling. The novel Jhadajhadati (A Dirge of the Damned), which fetched him 14 awards, is of great social relevance, while being a literary masterpiece.Mahanayak, based on Netaji Subhash Chandra, which received great acclaim for its extensive research, is also considered one of the outstanding novels of the 20th century. Patil is one of the youngest recipients of Sahitya Akademi Award whose works have been widely translated into almost all languages in India.

Nadeem Khan has been a teacher of the English language and literature for over 40 years, at Nagpur and Amravati in Maharashtra. Comfortable with Hindi, Marathi and Urdu, he has several translations to his name. Six decades of voracious reading and avid film watching helped him transfer the substance of Vishwas Patil s Marathi original into English with felicity and authenticity. Nadeem Khan currently heads the Regional Centre of the Govt. of India run Indian Institute of Mass Communication at Amravati.
