About the Author

Bhisham Sahni came to Delhi at the time of Partition, and started teaching in a DU college. In his lifetime, he published several novels, plays, an autobiography and his brother Balraj Sahni’s biography. In the Foreword to this book, he highlights how Hindi stories have grown as a genre and gives us insights into the world they capture.
Rajshree Bose holds a Master’s degree in Hindi, and has been an avid reader all her life. In her Introduction and selection of these stories, we can see her insightful understanding of Hindi literature, and also a reflection of a four-decade-long career as a teacher of Hindi. --This text refers to the paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of short stories
By Vishnu Chevli on 9 February 2021
A comfy sofa-chair, center table with books & coffee strongly suggests that the book would be a good companion for a nice reading journey. The plain sky-blue background suggests an uninterrupted interest quotient. My assumptions were right when I read the book, "Modern Hindi Short Stories" which was indeed a nice try to bring classic Hindi literature to English readers.

The short book consists of 14 beautiful short stories in less than 230 pages. Each story from a different author, hence touching different notes with narration. Though it is not possible to bring out the same level of the emotional connection while translating, here translator has done a pretty good job. My personal favorite stories are
1. The Mark of Man by Himanshu Joshi
2. Miniature Tajmahals by Rajendra Yadav
3. Sargam Cola by Asgar Wajahat

The best part of short stories is you can read at leisure and without depending upon the previous chapter. I haphazardly read a book.

I will give 3.5 out of 5 to this book.
