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
Fantastic! Thank You for amazing service and fast replies!
Sonia, Sweden
I’ve started receiving many of the books I’ve ordered and every single one of them (thus far) has been fantastic - both the books themselves, and the execution of the shipping. Safe to say I’ll be ordering many more books from your website :)

Probir, UAE
I received the kaftan today via FedEx. Your care in sending the order, packaging and methods, are exquisite. You have dressed my body in comfort and fashion for my constrained quarantine in the several kaftans ordered in the last 6 months. And I gifted my sister with one of the orders. So pleased to have made a connection with you.
EB Cuya FIGG, USA
