That Calcutta…..those Bongs By Dipanwita Mukherjee

8142509

Best for some light reading that your mind may seek after reading a serious literature or a really long book.

A collection of 21 short stories by Dipanwita Mukherjee, all about the Bengali society and cultural settings in Kolkata/Calcutta. There are extensive Bengali words/terms used in the stories throughout which are then explained at the end of the book. A nostalgic journey into the routine lives of people in Bengal and they go as far back as when Kolkata was still Calcutta.

The Bengalis or people familiar with the language will associate perfectly with the stories and terms but others may find it difficult to understand a lot of things.
