Sukumar Ray A Legacy of Laughter
Sukumar Ray A Legacy of Laughter
Description
About the Book

Sukumar Ray was the first humorist in Bengali literature. His witty poems, anarchic plays and hilarious stories have enchanted many generations of readers. Many phrases invented by him have become a part of the Bengali language.

Sukumar Ray was a poet, writer, illustrator and publisher. His collection of poems, 'Abol Tabol', and the novel 'Ha-ja-ba-ra-la' are classics. He died at thirty six, but in his short span of writing years he gave Bengal one of its finest children's magazines, 'Sandesh'. Filling its pages with nonsense rhymes, satirical plays and magical stories, all illustrated in his unique cartoon style.

Sukumar Ray introduced humour to Indian Literature and his irrepressible voice still fills our lives with an innocent insanity and the unadulterated joy of laughter.

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.
