As a short story writer, Santosh Kumar Ghosh is not well-known, perhaps, to the reader though he has left a sizable volume of this art form. The twelve short stories, selected from that corpus and translated into English, for the first time, deal with material and spiritual bankruptcy. The stories portray Calcutta (now Kolkata) of the thirties and forties of the twentieth century when famine-war-partition ruled hand-in-hand. His stories delved deep into the mind of people from different walks of life.
