About the Book:
Bam Sankar Tan Ganes is the barn house photoplay of Tariani Chapra. A moving picture like hamlet hitherto living only in the mind and heart of resident opera house characters like Dhanvir and Anupiya. But, this is not the familiar, old and ordinary story. Plot and locales could be overused but there are avant garde characters and writing is cutting edge. Rakesh Kumar Singh is breaking new ground with fresh and funky emotions and expressions. His cast of characters is of various shades marvelling brilliance of a burlesque as well as carnival drama. By all accounts, Rakesh's literature stands out as a new fashioned entry in the world of Hindi literature.
The paperback is a portfolio of love, lust, joy, sorrow, valor and victory. Natives delight in defeat as well as pride in penury. Readers are lured by the peculiarity of plotlines, which give unique clothing to a far-cry pageant. Within the collection, the chronology of events throw music and melody of little village parliament, score and song of Hindu temples to which a large majority of untouchables are forbidden from sniffing the romance of spiritual rhapsody. Whiff of history blows tribute to daredevilry of nine bravehearts who fought for glory and freedom of their land in 1942 unto death.
The writer deals with habit and humor, mood and mystique, sense and singularity, spirit and style, temper, tone and trait of sub-altern characters in a narrative bubbling with psychedelic pleasure. Rakesh Kumar Singh deserves congratulations for presenting a prime, precious and pleasing story to the literary world.
