Chasing the Rainbow is an account of the childhood experiences of the author who, in the words of Ruskin Bond, is one of the few good storytellers left in the world today. Imbued with a spontaneous sense of wonder, the work leads us to a quiet and serene village by the sea and the enchanting worlds of a few other rural spots: where a dreaded butcher turns out to be a messenger from a goddess while a princely exterior hides a hapless vagrant. Even the ghosts are not frightening here and a voyage to the alien horizon across the river is filled with the promise of romance and surprises. A homage to a way of life that is fast disappearing, this book will appeal to all who love good writing as well as students and teachers of Indian literature in translation, translation studies, and comparative literature.
