Shanku Samagra (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 360

The Bengali scientific fiction story book Shanku Samagra by Satyajit Ray is a collection of  the famous children’s series created by this gifted writer and is about the comic and heroic exploits and ‘travels’ of its hero Professor Shanku.


Summary Of The Book


The volume, Shanku Samagra, brings together all the Shanku series published over a period of time and is read by all age groups. The hero of the book, Shanku, portrays the character of a Bengali scientist, who is driven by an insatiable appetite for scientific adventures. He undertakes several journeys, including one to Mars. Ray’s hero Shanku is an absent-minded and eccentric genius.


Among his imaginary medical inventions is a wonder drug called ‘Miracure-all’ - which can cure any disease, ‘Remembrance’ - for restoring a failing memory, and his most powerful weapon ‘Annihilin’ - which can destroy anything without leaving any evidence. Armed with these ‘weapons’, he can travel to any new strange world or even time zones. His travels have adventure, mystery, and science all with extraordinary stories. He seems to have the uncanny ability to land himself in all types of dangerous situations, from which he comes out eventually. He has faced a killer Tyrannosaurus Rex, met one of man’s distant ancestors, and even travelled trough the dense rain forests of Amazon.


Professor Shanku has even travelled across time zones into past and future and other planets, and all stories end with a thrilling climax. Other characters who always join him in his adventures are his own inventions - the robot called Bidhushekhar, his servant Prahlad, and his pet cat Newton. In this volume, readers can find about how they land on Mars, where they are attacked by the natives from whom they escape narrowly. Subsequently, after wandering through space for several days, they discover a planet called Tafa inhabited by what Shanku calls the first civilised human race of the solar system.


Satyajit Ray had got inspired to write the series on Shanku by Arthur Conan Doyle’s book Professor Challenger.


About Satyajit Ray


Satyajit Ray was an eminent Bengali film maker, apart from being a renown writer. He was born in Calcutta on May 2, 1921, into a Bengali family known for its contribution to the world of literature and arts.


His other popular books in English include The Complete Adventures of Feluda (Volume 1 and 2), Deep Focus: Reflection on Cinema, Speaking of Films, and Adventures of Feluda: Bandits of Bombay, and he has also written books in other Indian languages.


In his writings, you can trace his interest in puzzles, suspense, and puns. His short stories gave him the freedom to express his favorite themes, which he could not for some reason represent in his films. His works make an interesting study in psychology. Ray won international acclaims from authors and film makers around the world. 


Ray obtained a B.A (Hons) in economics from Presidency College, Calcutta, and later studied at the Viswa Bharati University at Shantiniketan. Starting his career as a commercial artist, Ray entered the film industry and directed several feature films, documentaries, and short films.

Wonderful collection..!

I have read some of Shanku stories in childhood, but never had entire collection in my stock. In flipkart, when I saw this book, I couldn't stop myself from ordering it. I guess, its not required to write anything much about Prof. Shanku stories!!! Even in our modern high technology world, all those… (View complete review)

Awesome!!

Bought this classic for 243 INR. It was simply a steal. Thank you flipkart. Regarding the contents of the book, Prof shanku is one of the best created characters of Satyajit Ray. And I am happy to get the whole collection for such a small price.

Too Good ..

Well .. when the author is Satyajit Ray, do you really need a review ? Seriously ?? Another masterpiece from Ray, a must read :).
Dealing with intricate scientific incidents and explaining the genius in Prof. Shanku, requires no less than another genius .. and Ray dons this hat with ease .. !

The Greatest of his fictional characters

Ray's Feluda is probably his widest known literary character. With the due respect to the amateur detective, Proffessor Trilokeshwar Shanku would die in disdain if he were not conferred the tag of being one of the most enthralling, imaginative and "different" fictional characters ever created. Written in the style of a chronicle, this unique genre of sci-fi takes its readers for a ride you wished never ended. It is a child's Utopia where the gadgets he thought impossible came to life. Fast-paced, adventurous,thrilling, educative in science and geography, Shanku is literature par excellence. Si…

The Complete Diary of Prof. Trilokeswar Shanku in Your Hand

You can say that this book is THE COMPLETE DIARY of Prof. Shanku, including all the days of his wonderful life that he wanted to share with his fans. This book [read 'his diary'] contains all the stories and facts his Discoveries and Inventions, Adventures and Experiments including 2 Incomplete Experiments...

Most of the stories will entertain people of all ages equally, but some of them, you may find, for children only, and hence very light... But nonetheless, IT'S AN ABSOLUTELY GREAT GIFT FROM THE ANANDA PUBLISHERS...

The FONT SIZE is big and hence helpful for the aged peop…

Awesome...Thanx Ananda Pub for putting all Shanku in a book...

There is nothing new to say regarding Shanku or Satyajit Ray. Earlier I have read Shanku discretely. Now getting all those fabulous story in a book is an awesome experience. Printing and Book binding is very good ( And its quite normal for Ananda Pub.). Packaging and delivery by flipkart is also very good.

Ray's unique first person commentary bring a unique fa├žade to the reader's mindset. This is for kids of all ages. And if you haven't read it yet, then you can become the kid and ride along the pages of the diary of Professor Shanku.

Am satisfied with the quality of the book and shipping was per schedule. If you are a Professor Shonku fan, or want to introduce the character to a young one, then this book is for you. Rather inexpensive for the entire collection of stories including all the artwork by Ray (and some previously unpublished ones as well). Will miss the cover art on each individual adventure though.

I guess, its not required to write anything much about Prof. Shanku stories!!! Even in our modern high technology world, all those sci-fi stories never sound weird. That is the magic of author indeed!
And thanks Flipkart for delivering the book on time. :)
