This set of two books is a collection of detective fiction stories featuring a fictional detective named Feluda, written by noted Bengali filmmaker Satyajit Ray.
Summary Of Feluda Samagra (I & II)
Pradosh Chandra Mitra (Mitter), the private detective, is the main character in a series of detective stories written by Satyajit Ray. More familiarly known by his nickname, Feluda, Pradosh Chandra Mitra is a Bengali detective who solves mysteries using his incisive intellect.
Feluda is characterized as a tall and athletic man, who is well-versed in martial arts and can handle firearms with ease. But, he seldom uses these skills, preferring to solve crimes with his analytical skills, aided by his keen powers of observation.
Feluda is the son of a professor who taught mathematics and Sanskrit. He too starts his career in the teaching profession before he decides to use his skills to solve crimes. His teaching experience leaves its mark on him as he likes to deliver scholarly lectures even at home.
Feluda has a faithful sidekick in his young cousin Tapesh Ranjan Mitra, who is commonly referred to as Topshe. Topshe is the perfect foil to Feluda, similar to the character of Watson in the Sherlock Holmes series. He diligently records all Feluda’s exploits, just like Watson, .
Another interesting character is Lalmohan Ganguli, who is a close friend of Feluda. He writes crime fiction under the pen name of Jatayu. He is the comic figure in the group, providing light relief in the stories.
Feluda made his debut in 1965, in the Bengali children’s magazine, Sandesh. His first adventure was titled Feluda Goendagiri. Satyajit Ray wrote a total of 35 Feluda stories, the last one was published in 1992. These novels are extremely popular in Bengal and filled with crime and suspense and fast-paced narratives. Many of the Feluda stories have been adapted into movies in Bengal.
The two volumes in Feluda Samagra has all the stories arranged in chronological order, and they are written in Bengali. Thus, the reader sees the gradual development of characters, especially that of Feluda. From his amateur debut in Feluda Goendagiri, he gradually evolves into a private investigator of a high calibre.

A magnificent piece of workFrom my childhood I was a big fan of Feluda. He was our own Sherlock Holmes that brought the science of deduction to our childhood. Not only the stories are amazing but it brings back my childhood days. I had been collecting the stories since childhood. But the problem was single books take a lot more space than a cumulative collection and are harder to maintain. So I donated my old collection and decided to buy the full collection. In the mean time Flipkart came up with a great offer! Way to go Flipkart, keep it up!! This collection has all the stories, including the unfinished ones. The sto… (Expand)

Excelent reading and pride of owningSatyajit Ray's light and crisp writing is marvelous. You cannot stop reading untill you finish a story. Every time you read the same story it will have the same freshness. Moreover his two films "Sonar Kella" and "Jai Baba Felunath" add the realistic image of Feluda, Topse and Jotayu which brings all hios stories to life.

A Must Have!Great to find all the Feluda stories compiled into one set with 2 volumes. A collectors item for all Feluda fans. Bonus is the introductory note by Sandip Ray on the premise of satyajit Ray having penned stories on one of the most loved detective characters of modern times. Another interesting feature is the chronicle of all the novels....

darun...Its gr8 to have them all in a box set. Printing and binding of the book as usual very good. The details of date of publishing the story in a magazine and as a book is giving something extra for all Feluda Lovers. Only con is a new story starts just below where previous one ends. The new story should start in a fresh page. When someone is giving Rs 850 for a book then he/she can give a few more rupees for some more pages. At flipkart side, their service is awesome. Earlier the book delivered to me has some page missing. When i reported it to Flipkart, they immediately replaced product. Overall… (Expand)

Joy baba FelunathI've read books of Conan Doyle, Agatha Christie, Sydney Sheldon, Dan Brown but no one can cross up the maestro SATYAJIT RAY, to depict such detective intuition in such a INDIAN charismatic figure Prodosh Mitra Aka FELUDA.
