The Bird of Gold and Other Stories
Author : Om Goswami
Translator : Shivanath
The Bird of Gold and Other Stories is a collection of seven long Dogri stories in English translation which lay bare the social inequalities, the injustices, the exploitation by the ‘haves’ and the general erosion of moral values in modern times. The stories in the collection are marked by deep humanism and subtle satire, and hold up a mirror to social realities. Powerfully written, the stories expose the sham and hypocrisy of the rich, corruption in all walks of life, unemployment and frustration of the youth, the travails of the destitute and children and the lack of honest.
