About the Book :
What can one say of a city where rich sweets cost the same as lowly vegetables? Bhartendu Harishchandra wrote the classic play, Andher Nagari, in 1881. It told the story of a foolish king whose well-intended but irrational decisions created mayhem in his kingdom. The play is still enacted in theatres all over India. This Amar Chitra Katha collection tells the story of this runaway hit. It also includes two famous stories from the 11th century Sanskrit classic, Karhasaritsagar, by Somadeva, a folk tale from Nepal, as well as some very humourous stories from a collection by John Dorairaj.
