    Read the paragraphs and for a person with Hindi as first language the sweet savouring flavor comes when you re-think the lines in Hindi. It is as if English was the outer cream and the real sweet hidden in between it.

    An elaborate fantasy tale......

    Another elaborate fantasy tale from Salman Rushdie. I read this after finishing "Haroun and the Sea of Stories", would say this has much more fantasy than that. Not recommended for readers with weak imagination, you will get confused. Otherwise go for it. Lastly, a good deal from Flipkart.

    Very colourful

    A classic case for making an animation movie. Such is the description of characters and places that you feel to be the dreamland yourself with the characters.

    Simple superb by Salman Rushdie
