Description
Back of the Book

Ten wonderfully funny stories by the great Bengali writer Shrrshendu Mukhopadhyay. Meet the thief who does not like to steal, the genie that wants to burp, the cow and the tiger that drink together and the gentlemen who is too polite to object even an ox butts him in the ribs. Visit the town where ghosts and people co-exist amicably and the village where anyone who has a drink from the well finds even iron digestible. And join the famous detective Barada Charan as he rapidly uncovers mysterious plots involving stolen gourds and masterful disguises.

Set in timeless little towns with genial folks, the author’s narrative skills and witty observations will make these hilarious stories an instant hit with young people.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books...
