The Kabuliwallah and Other Stories
Read by Sagar Arya
Rabindranath Tagore, India’s foremost writer and the first non-European to win the Nobel Prize for literature, is perhaps best known for his tender and passionate tales about human yearning and longing. Here then is a collection of eighteen short stories that highlight Tagore’s profound vision. The collection begins with The Kabuliwallah, a heartwarming story about the relationship between a father and daughter. In The Postmaster, a young man from Calcutta finds himself adjusting to life in a remote village, and The Hungry Stones recounts an unlikely encounter at a railway station.

This collection of stories is told in the lively tradition of an oral storyteller by narrator Sagar Arya. He tells these tales of love and separation with humour and gravitas, evoking a range of emotions for which the author’s writing is well known. Postmen, shopkeepers, fathers, and young children are a few of the many characters that people these narratives. Arya captures the musical rhythms of South Asian-accented English throughout the dialogue. This adds to the authenticity of the listening experience because the collection represents the daily lives of Indians in the twentieth century. Recounting the experiences of characters who span different classes, ages and genders, Arya succeeds in bringing this classic of Indian literature to new audiences.
