‘I’m not the only one. Do you think you can’t be an artist living in a big house and going to school? Its balls I juggle. You can try juggling with words, colours, with tunes! Think of that! You’ll have something worth juggling with and you’ll know what kind of artist you can become. Then you’ll…’

A moving and contemplating sketch of nameless relationship between a boy who lost his memory and a juggler who helps him in the journey outside the safe and sound home. The bonding and thread of humanit

Leaves me with questions about why Phatik could not face his father, when he had the urge to chase after Harunda at the end? I wonder what people with non-Indian background would think of the story.

For its short length, the pace is perfect and the characters are revealed effortlessly. Very good read.

If someone said me, "There are some other stories that started as The Bourne Series (amnesia perspective) and they were written before Bourne came into prominence." one day before, I would not have believed them. But after reading this book, I can say they are right.

That said, it is a thriller story for kids. Nice and wonderful. :)
Bought this on an impulse while buying short stories written by Satyajit Ray. This one is a nice little story meant for kids.
