This collection of short stories focuses on Bengal. Bangla literature is well known in India through the translation into regional languages of writers like Rabindra Nath Tagore, Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay, Manik Bandopadhyay and Others. This volume brings together significant work by both established and emergent writers in order to be respresentative, as far as possible, of the contemporary short story scene in Bengal.
The selection of authors and texts demonstrates the vitality and resilience of the Bangla short story genre. From the omniscient narration and direct description of Sarat Chandra and the ironic appraisals of Ashapurna Devi to Banaphool’s comic interludes and Suchitra Bhattacharya’s subjective effusions, the Bangla short story evinces its plasticity and its adaptibility to different times and to different perspectives.
