Good. You spared Aashikaji and me trouble of googling the author. If it is the English version you could actually lend it to her. Only, buying in India May be cheaper than couriering to Canada.

I wonder if an English translation exists and if it does I wouldn't want to read it.. some things described just sound right in Hindi. I will see if I find some examples to quote here, may be people can take a shot at translating.

I know some people who learnt Bengali language for years just to be able to read Tagore's Bengali books.. so I hold a firm view that a book can't be translated, unless its technical of course.

I remember seeing an english cover of it long back by penguin.
In DD days a serial used to come based on the book. Used to be pretty engrossing.
