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.
