‘The feast of smiles was put together giving the secret strategies and all the tricks of courtesans...’
One of the finest satires to emerge from the Indian subcontinent in the last thousand years, Kshemendra’s delightful and fast-paced tale is populated with a host of colourful characters and is set in the Kashmir Valley, where the famed courtesan Kankali teaches her young ward Kalavati the ways of the world. #penguinclassics#kashmirvalley#courtesan#satire#throwbackThursday

Tell us what you love/hate about metropolitans. * * *
In 2011, the screenwriter, lyricist and journalist Neelesh Misra started mentoring a handpicked group of writers called the Mandali. These were men and women of all ages, backgrounds and dispositions. The Mandali soon started writing radio stories in Hindi, for Misra's show Yaadon Ka Idiotbox-short, pithy, bittersweet narratives that immediately struck a chord with listeners across the country.
Translated for the first time in English, this collection represents the Mandali at the height of its powers. These stories are blessed with a keen sense of place, attuned to the rhythms of both small-town India and rapidly expanding mega-cities like Delhi or Mumbai. Homesick yuppies reconnect with their hometowns, old lovers reconcile against all odds, and parents learn to get along with their grown-up children. A mother-in-law uses questionable tactics to bond with her distant daughter-in-law, a war widow learns to stand up to family, and a life-threatening mountain slope brings two strangers together.
These are fresh, untamed voices aided and abetted by a master storyteller. #Storywallah#NeeleshMisra@neeleshmisra
