An English translation of Sahitya Akademi's Award-winning Punjabi Book of Short Stories "Moon Di Ankh", is a rare collection of stories, vaguely reminiscent of the Punjab tragedy. The stories create images that, at once, enthrall and terrify. Despite being variations on the same leitmotiv, therse stories display an uncanny freshness, vigour and richness in their choice of subject matter and style. It is as though each story weaves its own tale of the gimes gone awry, unmasking an insancely terrifying though sensitively humane images of men and women grappling with the dread of violence, both inside and outside. A living history of its own times, this collection offers some intensely memorable portrayals of character/situations. A passionate humanist, tirelessly digging into the rubble of contemporary history, Bhandari manages to resurrect some enduring vignettes, without even once losing his deft control over the language. PRINTED PAGES: 170.
