Description
About The Book

The story refers to the Naxalberi period in India, and is situated in the communist Czechoslovakia of 1974 when the iron curtain was still hanging heavy. The resentment of the Czech people to their ruler’s language drew my attention to the handful who dreamt of writing in English came a decade before Salman Rushdie and the tide of Indian Writing in English touched our shore. The novella was published in 1977 in Krittibas, as a follow up of the novel Ami Anupam, the first novel on the Naxal Movement in West Bengal published in Sharadiya Ananda Bazaar in 1976.

Testimonials
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
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... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
