Description

About The Book

A rich zamindar dreams that his daughter –in –law is an incarnation of goddess Kali; a housewife steps out of her lower middle –class household into the big city to work as a sales girl; Goopy and Begha fight the evil plans of the king of Shundi to rescue the kingdom of Halla; a group of friends run into a self –proclaimed sage who claims to have been friends with Plato, Jesus and Buddha, Nobbles at the court of Awadh, the chess addicts Mir and Mirza, move to an undisclosed location to play undisturbed as their kingdom falls around them.

Short stories were the inspiration for fourteen of master film –maker Satyajit Ray's movies. Every one of them a classic –Devi, Jalsaghar and Shantranj Ke Khiladi, among them, Fourteen brings together all of those stories in one volume. These tales, by the likes of Rabindranath Tagore, Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay, Prabhat Kumar Mukhopadhyay, Rajshekhar Basu and Premchand, are milestones in Indian literature –quite apart from their cinematic glory. The anthology also contains two stories by Ray himself –'Athithi' and 'Pikoor Dairy' – that illustrate his own craft as a writer.

From the drametic to the strakly real, the humourous to the dark, the lyrical to the prosatic, Fourteen sparkles with narrative brilliance. Read together, these stories also provide us with the context for a new insight into the mind of one of India's most loved and revered film –makers.

I received my Manjushri statue today and I can't put in words how delighted I am with it! Thank you very much. It didn't take very long to get here (the UK) - I wasn't expecting it for a few more weeks. Your support team is very good at providing customer service, too. I must conclude that you have an excellent company.
