    Translation is excellent

    The translation work from bengali to english is praise-worthy. The story is woven with all the subtle aspects that make the heart flutter at times. However, the story concludes on a happy note with mind ruling the heart.
    Since, the writer has fictionalised the history of Sangama dynasty, the reader is cautioned to only enjoy the story and not believe it as history, though one would like to have happy endings even in true life.
