Our Non-Veg Cow and Other Stories
Only for sale in India.
In this volume, Mahasweta Devi reveals a fresh new face to those who know her only from her hardhitting socially committed writing as a writer of delightfully whimsical and funny children s stories. This is a side of her personality that young readers in Bengal have enjoyed and savoured for over thirty years. This volume consists of ten favourite stories, selected by the author from Sandesh, a popular children's magazine closely identified with the family of the renowned filmmaker Satyajit Ray who edited and illustrated it for years. These irresistible stories abound with unlikely and colourful characters: a vehemently non-vegetarian cow, the household pet, who wolfs down fried fish and gets drunk on local spirits; an irrepressible prankster of a brother who gets himself and everyone else into trouble with his mischievous tricks; a father who thinks nothing of filling the entire house with hens and chickens while on an economic drive, and a teeming assortment of others like Chittu, the little creature who changes into a pebble or a mongoose at will.
