My father gifted me all the volumes(probably 8 volumes) of Mansarovar when I was a kid. Though I could not understand many stories at that age but few of them like eidgaah, poos ki raat, shatranj ke khiladi etc made an everlasting impact which later compelled me to revisit the whole set. If one is in doubt that whether he should read Mansarovar or not the following sentence may help "Premchand is the Gorky of India".
There are no words to describe Premchand's works, as far as short stories are concerned. I guess even Premchand himself would fail to do so. Brilliant would be an under-statement. I strictly recommend.

My salute to the great writer for the simplicity of his writing, the brilliance of his characters and the realistic and engrossing portrayal of the life, people and culture of India in pre-independence years.
Its a fantastic series of stories. The way Premchand understands people and writes about society is very very precise and detailed even in a short piece of story.

Very highly recommended collection.
