It is said that a translation can sometimes be no match to the original.
Add all three to Cart Add all three to List. Didn’t get the right answer you were looking for Post your question. However given the prime focus being on laying out a good detective read for us to solve in our heads, while BB does the honors in the tales, this is an adequate translation. A wrong edition to enjoy Byomkesh Bakshi stories. Nowhere did the translation feel odd but instead merged beautifully to bring out dialogues just like they would have been woven in the Envlish original.

Byomkesh Bakshi Stories by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay
Byomkesh Bakshi is an evergreen character of a Bengali Investigator who despised the word “Detective” to describe his profession but instead liked to byyomkesh himself a “Truth Seeker”. Some stories were quite similar to the Feluda stories and some were quite simple.
I’d recommend Byomkesh Bakshi series to anybody and everybody who loves detective series. I really enjoyed The Menagerie. Good as one time read. He was also actively involved with Bengali cinema as well as Bollywood.
