A Pair of Mustachios
Description

About the Book:

The volume is remarkable for the variety of its inspiration…. The virtues of a humorous appreciation of life's little ironies and a sympathetic understanding of its tragedies is conveyed with a truly poetic intensity.'

Manchester Guardian, U.K.

About the Author:

MULK RAJ ANAND, was born in December, 1905, in Peshawar (now in Pakistan), and education at the Universities of Punjab and London. He began his career by writing for T. S. Eliot's Criterion and went on to win international fame with his heart-warming portraits of the Indian landscape and its working class. Author of more than a dozen novels, of countless short stories and literary essays, he has honored with Sahitya Akademi Award, the prestigious Indian award for literary writing, in 1972. He has held the prestigious Tagore chair at the Punjab University.

REVIEW:

'Anand is a figure of towering humanity whose works guide as through the multitudinous complexity of India with more verve than any other prose writer of his time.'

Alistair Niven in The Hindu

'In Mulk Raj Anand we see a writer who has not lost touch with his people.'

Dr Radha Rao in Indian Review of Books.

Testimonials
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 !
