This book has three fantastic stories and five short and interesting articles on seeing, hearing, taste, smell, and touch. It has a story on lamba raja, who can see beyond the sky. Then there is the story of a horse rider, whose horse can run faster than sound. If someone calls the horse-rider, he reaches before his answer. There is also a bear who fails to extract honey and hopes to turn into a cat....and then, instantaneously, he becomes a cat. These stories expand the reach of our reality with imagination. Life is felt by us in its sheer intensity. Not just its expression but also the experience its language provides is matchless. While your eyes move from a sentence to the other, you would consider returning for a moment- to savor the expression, or enjoy its meaning, or just for pleasure. This return would not be justified in terms of language. Actually, everything happens only once in life, not twice. The collection resonates with this understanding, which you can hear only through reading.
Taposhi Ghoshal's illustrations touch the writer's imagination. When an
illustration makes us feel the story in its various shades, it means that
the illustration has created a place for itself.
