"Written in an evocative and thought-provoking style, [Sengupta] compels the reader to turn the pages in a self-discovery of human emotions and depths [that] transcend the barriers of time and space, making it an interesting and stimulating read." --The Pioneer Sunday "A mine of engagingly embroidered stories that leave us replete and delighted." --The Sunday Tribune (India) "[Rajmahal] is witty, vivid, evocative and informed. . . . The writing is sharp and compelling. Finally, it is the quality of the author's intelligence--of mind and heart--that determines the value of a novel. . . .Sengupta's book is. . . distinct from the recent body of competant Indian fiction in English. . . . Just read it. There is something in it for everybody. And many will love it all." --The Book Review (India)
