This volume carries the best short fiction published in fifteen Indian languages in ten volumes of Katha Prize Stories, and chosen by Adoor Gopalakrishnan, Govind Nihalani, Gulzar, Rituparno Ghosh and Sharmila Tagore.

For a whole decade, Katha’s search for excellence has brought to readers some of the best stories being written in our myriad languages. This year, to celebrate the crop of the 90s, Katha invited five giants of Indian cinema to choose the best for us. And here they are-just for your reading pleasure. Right off the top draw-from one hundred and fifty award-winning stories from fifteen languages- stories that were chosen by discerning editors of respected magazines and journals in the first place, then through a rigorous, eclectic process, once again by our nominating editors. Come home to good fiction… Come home to Katha!


The conception and execution of Katha Prize Stories series… represents a unique and special moment in Indian publishing history.
-The Economic Times
