    A collection of short stories by Indian writers both in English and translationsLoved The Accountant Canvasser Krishnanlal Eye In The Sky Dots And Lines and Halfway AnimalsThe editor has got a good mix of stories representing all the four corners of India There's just so much 'regional' literature in India which needs to be translated into English andor other Indian languages so that and people are able to enjoy it

    This amazing gem of a book contains short stories by many of India's most famous fiction writers The forward before each story lists each author's novels providing a fabulous future reading list I've created an wish list of these booksThe last sentence of the forward by Anita Desai best describes this book that fathomless word India

    This book collects 13 short stories from 13 Indian authors by Chandorahas Choudhury who himself is a novelist and a book criticHis intention is to have each story represent each distinct area in India Either it is about or with the favor of its religion food landscape building transport trade custom social climate tradition circumstances or what are on people's mindFascinating to read one by one as it makes me feel like in a traveling mood
