A collection of fourteen short stories including the famous ones like The Postmaster(made into a short film by Satyajit Ray), The Castaway, Subha and The Trust Property, Mashi has proved to be popular to the readers of Tagore since it was first published in 1918.
The stories portray the sorrows and happiness of everyday Bengali life. In translation the stories retain their original freshness, and the universality of the situations and sentiments extends its appeal to readers not born in Bengal and foreign to the language.
