About the Book


Every incident in our daily life carries a story. Sometimes they are tragic and in some occasions they are hilarious. But the incidents carry some messages, which help to face the practical life. The old proverbial statement “Life is a tale told by an idiot” will remain true throughout the ages. But idiocy in our daily life has to be kept under control to derive maximum from our beautiful life. Tagore said, “I do not want to die in this beautiful world (Morite Chahina Aami Ei Sundar Bhuboane)”. Idiocy helps to keep aside prejudices and gives the power to observe all events if not in minute but at least in coarse details and find how the world remains beautiful either in tragedy or in comedy. Stories are generated to give maximum pleasure in reading them. Be it disappearances of Ramu (Ramu’s Fate), Biplab (Victory Procession), the unknown man (The man at Traffic Junction) or rise of Budhan from a very humble boy and becoming an extortionist (Budhan Razak and his Donkey) or ShanuDa unknowingly bringing momentary pleasure to a middleclass family (ShanuDa – The footballer).
