About The Book

The Bird of Gold and Other Stories, originally published as Sunne Di Chirre in Dogri in 1983, received the Sahitya Akademi Award in 1986. It is a collection of seven long stories, laying bare the social inequalities, the injustices, the exploitation by the 'haves' and the general erosion of moral values in modern times. 'The Crocodile', for instance, exposes the sham and hypocrisy of the rich who manipulate things to their own advantage; The Bird of Gold' is a political fable of modern times exposing the corruption in our country which was once known as 'The Gold Bird' for the material prosperity. 'Down and Out' depicts the frustration of two educated but unemployed youths; 'Bereavement' has a similar theme but the treatment is more light hearted, The Horned Moon' is a moving story of the travails of a destitute child; 'Ringworm' tells of a poor writer who lacks intellectual honesty.

All the stories are marked by deep humanism and subtle satire, and succeeds admirably in holding up a mirror to some aspects of contemporary life.
