A Science Fiction with a difference
Sri Botokesto Talukdar, the descendant of a powerful Zamindar family in the Golapdanga village, was really fed-up with his youngest son, Anik, an experimental scientist. The lad seemed to have nothing better to do but to indulge in apparently useless experiments. Also fed-up was the family’s pet cat, Mr. Hulo. Here, the neighbour’s daughter, Mili, was head over heels in love with Anik. Things were going on well enough, till one day, on his way back from morning walk, Botokesto suddenly disappears. Where did he vanish to? Did Anik really know something about this vanishing act? All these questions and their answers build up a fast paced, eminently readable story with an astounding end.
“How inventions in science can bring about disasters to mankind and how science itself can avert these disasters enabling Man to attain his desired goal – this picture we can get from this novel of Sayantan. There is a wonderful admixture of science, imagination and humanism in this novel, and, I believe that for these reasons he will gain the acclaim of the reader and the intellectual people alike.”
