This winning collection twelve award-winning translations of great fiction by master storytellers from the first All India Katha Translation Contest held in association with the British High Commission, British Council Division during 1994-95. Each story is a nugget which explores, crystallizes and interprets a singular incident, an emotion, an attitude, a place, a character, a relationship.

They differ marvelously in style and reveal the possibilities and achievements of this most variegated literary form.


Winning collection.
