Trouble In Gangtok
Feluda and Topshe are on vacation in picturesque Gangtok when they stumble upon the mysterious murder of a business executive. There are many suspects-the dead man's business partner Sasadhar Bose, the long-haired foreigner Helmut, the mysterious Dr Vaidya, perhaps even the timid Mr Sarkar. Feluda unravels the knotty case with his usual aplomb and tracks the criminal down in a far-flung monastery.
Satyajit Ray (1921-92) was one of the greatest film-makers of his time. In 1992, he was awarded the Oscar for Lifetime Achievement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. In the same year he was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna. Ray was also a writer of repute, and his short stories, novellas, poems and articles, written in Bengali, have been immensely popular. He has published several books in Bengali, most of which became bestsellers. He is also the author of the famous Feluda stories, the translations of which have been made available by Penguin.
