I found thins book in a little ripped condition at a book shop cum cafe in Udaipur.
In first look I knew that I must read it.
I brought it for 80 Rupees.
I read all the stories from shorter ones to the longer ones.
It became my companion in my travels to office in Metro.
Every story taught me something new about imagination and writing.
I loved the book to the core.
Very good translation as well.
