Short Takes (Stories From Bangladesh)
Look Inside the Book
Description
About the Book

This rare, enchanting collection of short stories from Bangladesh is long and hard, but very compassionate, look at all that constitutes the life of a action that came into existence after a long and bloody war of liberation. The eighteen short stories, or Takes, presented here are vignettes of life as lived out by citizens of the metro city of Dhaka.

Life is caught on the move, principally in the metro’s teeming streets, with its choked traffic, armies of urchins and beggars and, or course, the upwardly mobile, middle-class representatives. It is through their aspirations, and the big or small impediments that they face, that we glimpse a larger picture-of the making of a nation and of the formation of the character of its people.

With all their follies and in their desperation, their heroism and cowardice, sophistication and the lack of it, we easily identify with the citizens of Dhaka as folks experiencing the same slog as us.

Testimonials
I've just received the shawl and love it already!! Thank you so much,
Ina, Germany
The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
B. Werts, USA
Very good service. Very speed and fine. I recommand

Thank you for great service in the past. I am a returning customer and have purchased many Puranas from your firm. Please continue the great service on this order also.
