Chowringhee Charms

Do you want to delve into the complex landscapes of human emotions and relationships? From crime to the supernatural, angst of adolescence to marital discord, from unrequited love to divine pardon, from fighting patriarchy to funny wee-wee experiences. Banerjea’s characters are an interesting bunch—from benign spirits, to quirky octogenarians, from adventurous kids to loving reptiles, from lovers seeking second chances to careless parents. Her tales touch on human frailties with amusement. Others deal with sombre social issues, without any moral judgment. Chowringhee Charms will magically transport you to the country’s East and give you an interesting glimpse of the lifestyle, psyche, strengths, and foibles of the people there.
