    Description
    The Indian short story is extraordinary in its ability to stick to the traditional rules of the craft and still demonstrate remarkable originality. It revolves around a limited number of characters, confines itself in time and space, and has a well-plotted narrative that drives its central theme. Within the traditional framework, however, creativity flowers and a fresh and imaginative story emerges. This volume is chock-full with such stories, written by authors well known in their regional languages as well as those who have made a name for themselves in English literary circles. Carefully selected by India's literary giant, the late Khushwant Singh, these pieces represent the best of Indian writing from around the country.

    Don't waste your time...........

    Its not actually what you are thinking that is the truth. In fact, this book is excellent. Each of the stories are equally brilliant. Few are such anthologies as vibrant and absorbing as this book. I would recommend you this book if you do not grudge upon its expense because it has large font and about 250 pages and they mark the price it at is 299.

    Above all, this is definitely not the book to dispose off after reading it once. You would be attracted to it even after you have read all the s...

    Great Anthology

    I have purchased both the volumes of this Anthology, and haven't regretted about the decision. The book has some piece of brilliant stories in it, including authors like Ruskin Bond, Amrita Pritham, Ismat Chugtai, Mulk-Raj Anand etc and some not-so-known authors. The collection of stories included is excellent and I think Khushwant ji has done a great job of sorting out the wheat from the husk.

    The stories are quite absorbing and you will definitely read it many times over and recommend to ...
