    Chowringhee is a Bengali classic penned down by bestselling Bengali author, Sankar.

    Summary of the Book

    Chowringhee is a sprawling saga of the intertwined lives of managers, employee and guests at the Shahjahan hotel, one of the oldest and largest hotels of Calcutta. Set in the 1950s, the book follows the life of Shankar, an ambitious young man, who was previously a secretary of an English barrister. He becomes unemployed when the barrister dies all of a sudden and is forced to take up a menial job. One fateful day, when Shankar was reminiscing about his past in a neighborhood park, he bumps into a friend who is shocked by Shankar’s descent into poverty. He offers Shankar a job at the Shahjahan Hotel. His new job at the Shahjahan Hotel turns out to be a completely different experience for Shankar. He soon befriends the manager, Marco Polo and Sata Bose, the chief receptionist, of the hotel. The story revolves around Shankar’s experiences with the guests, entertainers and the frequent visitors of the Shahjahan. This book will make for an intriguing and riveting read for those who enjoy Bengali classical literature.
