Product Description

Timeless Indian Short Stories is an anthology of 17 of the earliest
short stories in Indian languages, presented in English translation.
Delving into India's vast ocean of stories, we have picked a few
pearls for the discerning reader out of a veritable treasure trove.
It has been our endeavour to showcase the initial journey of the
Indian Short Story in English Translation, from the single-page
length 'Ek Tokri Bhar Mitti' by Madhavrao Sapre, often considered
the first Hindi short story, to the timeless 'Usne Kaha Tha' by
Chandradhar Sharma ‘Guleri’, to Parashuram's slow-burn satire
'Dakshin Rai', to the lofty, masterful storytelling of Premchand in
'Kafan', Tagore in 'Kabuliwallah' and Manto in 'San 1919 Ki Ek
Baat'.
Above all, Timeless Indian Short Stories can be seen as windows
into the life and times of the Indian people in the pre-independence
era. Each of the stories in this collection has been hand-picked for
its timeless nature and message, which is relevant even today,
after more than a century.
