Great collection of stories!
15 August 2006 | by aanchalkumarSee all my reviews

This is a collection of stories by world famous short story writers such as Guy De Maupassant, Rabindranath Tagore, Leo Tolstoy, O. Henry, Anton Chekov etc. Some of the stories have been adapted to fit an Indian context but the adaptation embodies the essence of the original story very well. I grew up with this series on Indian television. If you have seen Darpan or Ek Kahaani which were aired around the same time as this series, you are sure to enjoy this one. The series also stars some of the best actors on Indian TV at the time. This is a must-see for all short story readers! Some of my favorites in this series: "The Necklace" by Guy De Maupassant, "A Cup of Tea" by Katherine Mansfield, and Tolstoy's "God Sees the truth, but waits" Hope that the DVD version of the series is released sometime.
