  • Usually Delivered in 2-3 business days.

What is the estimated delivery time?

Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.
Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:
  • The Seller offering the product
  • Product's availability with the Seller
  • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

What do the different tags like "In Stock", "Available" mean?

Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

Please enter your default pin code on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know more accurate delivery times on the product page itself.

Seller does not/cannot ship to my area. Why?

Enter your pincode on the product page (you don't have to enter it every single time) to know whether the product can be delivered to your location.

If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

  • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
  • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
  • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

The Sergeant's Son (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 175

In the late sixties, Sergeant Samar, a minor employee of the air force, his wife Basanti and their four sons move from small-town Barrackpore to Bombay. The four boys grow up in the rapidly changing, cosmopolitan city that is just beginning to recognize its aspirations. Kalu, the third son, dreams of being an artist.

But dreams are easily obscured by circumstances. Kalus parents drift apart under the pressure of mutual resentments and casual violence. In school, Kalu cannot keep up with his rich English-speaking friends; only art gives him solace. But even as Samar grudgingly accepts his sons artistic aspirations, he is unwilling to support him. Faced with the possibility of joining the air force in his fathers footsteps, Kalu is forced to make an impossible choice.

As much a story of a difficult childhood as a snapshot of India of the 1960s, The Sergeants Son is a must-read.

About the Author
Ashim Choudhury was a corporal in the air force before he crash-landed into journalism and cartooning in 1992. Soon jobless, he got a break with the UN in Delhi, where he hopped several agencies. He also worked at the UN missions in the African states of Liberia and Sudan. An avid storyteller, his dream of becoming a newspaper columnist was never fulfilled. An inveterate traveller and a self-professed environmentalist, painting landscapes still remains his first love.

A compelling read, beautiful, nostalgic and poignant!

You don't judge a book from it's cover they say, I did and I was definitely not disappointed in this case Ashim Choudhury has used his splendid descriptive abilities to the full as he relates to us his childhood experiences as Kalu Biswas, in retrospect.

The Sergeant's Son is an exceptionally well written account of the life of a boy as he grows up among his 3 brothers in a lower middle class Bengali family in Mumbai and later in Allahabad, the quest for his identity, his penchant for art and the choices he makes between his passion and his responsibility in the face of insurmountable o

An excellent experience

I took a chance to buy a first attempt of an unknown author. But the title and the cover design attracted me as also the excerpt. As a first attempt, it is superb. I do not have an iota of doubt that the protagonist is the author himself, and when he describes "Kalu", he writes about self. However, there are places where the author could restrain himself - he could avoid the detail description of a new game, long chapters on sex, repeated attempt to establish antithetic characteristics of his parents, etc. Although he almost successfully establish his father as a villain in the novel, he fails

Nostalgic & tende

As reviewed, Nostalgic & tender. Clearly depicts those days of a simple living life.
Characters are so enlightened, can not stop reading in half-way until you finish the whole story.
Though I am yet to finish it, I recommend this is a must read to calm the texture in you and this novel indeed justifies the tenderness.
