कहानियां

टैगोर की कहानियां जब भी पढ़ीं, लगा वे कहानी नहीं, एक पूरी दुनिया रचते हैं.. किरदार, आसपास का वातावरण, उसके संस्कार और क्रियाकलाप, सबका एक विस्तृत फलक.. शायद इसीलिए मुझे उनकी कहानियां अक्सर छोटे छोटे नाटक लगे, जिन्हें स्क्रीनप्ले में बखूबी ढाला जा सकता है… शरतचन्द्र की कहानियां, अलग ही […]

30 Indian Books You Must Read

When I was a kid, I was crazy for Nandan and Champak, their simple mythical tales and animated world painted my childhood with many colors. As I grew up, Tagore and R. K. Narayan replaced the lighter reads, progressing onto Amitav’s lyrical prose and Anita Desai’s heartrending tragedies. As I […]

Chokher Bali by Rabindranath Tagore

Chokher Bali by Rabindranath Tagore
