An Bangla translation of Kannada original, this book is a narrative of the exciting adventures and acts of courage on the part of the writer.

But more importantly, it authentically portrays a section of Indian society as it existed a hundred years ago : its beliefs and rituals, its food habits and hunting codes, and the relationship that existed between the colonial masters and their native subjects.

This is a work that would interest not only lovers of literature but also social historians and anthropologists.
