The Merry Adventures Of Harshabardhan And Gobardhan
Me: Not us. We’re extremely impatient.
Puns and pickles, and funny twists of fate pepper the madcap adventures of the two bumbling brothers, Harshabardhan and Gobardhan. Mildly dishonest timber merchants, foolhardy adventure enthusiasts, dynamic explorers, blundering do-gooders, occasional philosophers and gullible blokes, the endearing duo creates the most hilarious misunderstandings, commits the silliest mistakes and falls into the weirdest traps. From an elaborate tiger hunt to belling a cat, from solving a mysterious burglary to coming back from the dead, Harshabardhan and Gobardhan are a laugh riot. Joined by the author who writes himself into many a story and a stellar cast of supporting characters, Harshabardhan and Gobardhan’s antics will keep you laughing with them.
The two brothers are among the best-loved characters created by Bengal’s leading humorist, Shibram Chakraborty. Appearing for the first time in this superb English translation by one of India’s foremost translators, Arunava Sinha, these 20 classic comical stories will have you clutching your sides in merriment.
