The artistic and literary genius of Shanu Lahiri chronicle and mirror a variety of socio-political and cultural milestones in pre and post-colonial India, especially in Bengal. The life and works of Shanu Lahiri enable us to respond to the transitional nuances of the times-World War II, India’s ongoing freedom struggle, the Bengal Famine and celebrate the residual sparks ignited by the Bengal Renaissance. The works, though not chronologically structured, narrate an attempt to initiate an understanding of the tautly layered transactional nature of being. It is an eclectic selection whose charm lies in its very avoidance of a rigid order.
