One of the most important means of understanding is to know each other’s literature. With this aim in view, Jaico presents to you in this volume a selection of Gujarati short stories, selected and translated by Sarla Jagmohan. Being the daughter of an eminent Gurarati writer, Sunderaji Betai, she naturally grew in the company of his writer friends. She brings to you a juicy selection that will entertain you, as well as give a glimpse of Gujarati culture.
