Short stories

A group of villagers, led by an eccentric nomad, demands entry to a five-star hotel in New Delhi for a cup of tea. Yudhisthira arrives in heaven to find Draupadi behaving in a most disturbing manner. A young man takes Indira Gandhi for an intimate walk down to the river. In each of these twenty stories, writer Sunil Gangopadhyay conjures up intriguing events around enigmatic characters - many of them the flotsam of big-city and small-town society - and leads them into an unexpected, moving climax. Written during the fiery period in which the author created his sharpest novels by pitching ordinary people into extraordinary situations, this selection is the finest testament to his incisive and uncompromising fiction.
