Indian Nepali literature is not often translated into English, and remains inaccessible to most people within India, and outside it. This volume presents nineteen short stories from the Darjeeling area of the Indian Himalayas, originally written and published in Nepali.

Four introductory essays set the context to understand the myriad experiences and issues of the socio-cultural and economic contexts portrayed in these stories. The product of a collaborative project between students of the Department of Comparative Literature, Jadavpur University, and Southfield College, Darjeeling, this is the second edition of the book, incorporating new stories and additional introductory material.
