Read full description of the books:



The Bengali language has never been quite so much a living, breathing creature of whimsy as in Sukumar Ray’s hands, and his creations—wild and wicked, dreamy and delirious—have thrilled children and adults alike.

This selection offers you the best of his world—pun-riddled, fun-fiddled poetry from Abol Tabol and Khai-Khai, stories of schoolboy pranks (Pagla Dashu) and madcap explorers (Heshoram Hushiyarer Diary), and the unforgettable harum-scarum classic of Haw-Jaw-Baw-Raw-Law, presented here for the first time in its entirety.

All the stories and poems are accompanied by Sukumar Ray’s inimitable illustrations. Sampurna Chattarji’s lively translation captures the magical nonsense groove of the Bengali original through a freewheeling play of sound and sense.

With a sparkling new introduction by Ruskin Bond, this book is sure to captivate Sukumar Ray’s fans and win him a whole new generation of admirers.

Read information about the author

Ebook Wordygurdyboom! The Nonsense World of Sukumar Ray read Online! Sukumar Ray (Bangla: সুকুমার রায়) was a Bengali humorous poet, story writer and playwright. As perhaps the most famous Indian practitioner of literary nonsense, he is often compared to Lewis Carroll.

His works such as the collection of poems Aboltabol (Bengali: আবোলতাবোল), novella HaJaBaRaLa (Bengali: হযবরল), short story collection Pagla Dashu (Bengali: পাগলা দাশু) and play Chalachittachanchari (Bengali: চলচিত্তচঞ্চরী) are considered nonsense masterpieces equal in stature to Alice in Wonderland, and are regarded as some of the greatest treasures of Bengali literature. More than 80 years after his death, Ray remains one of the most popular of children's writers in both West Bengal and Bangladesh.

He was the son of famous Bengali writer Upendrakishore Ray Chowdhury and the father of the renowned film-maker Satyajit Ray.
