A very touching story of the lives of ordinary Indians under excruciating poverty in the pre-independence Bengal. In a very simple, yet powerful language, the author has woven an intricate web of human emotions, expressed through the eyes of two beautiful young children. The description of the life of Bengal in those days is near flawless. It is often said that poverty cannot be explained - it has to be experienced, and this book stands tall as a testimony to it.
