little pictures of India

My Little India
Manoj Das
National Book Trust, India

Das picks up local stories from various nooks of the country. Thrown in are senses of history, adventure, courage, humor which add colour to his visits. Short stories which make for good reading. With tales from Mahabharata to the Subhash Chandra Bose, each story is different from the other. With a good use of vocabulary, this book caters to everyone.

Quite a readable book. The photo on the cover page is alluring. It shows a flight of stairs which leads to a passage through a small archway. The start of the staircase is pitch dark, while light percolates through from the opposite direction.
