Shubha and Sau Desuri Days

Author Name: Prithvipal Singh Kanawat | Format: Paperback | Genre : Young Adult Fiction | Other Details

Desuri was a sleepy village in rural Rajasthan where nothing much happened. This was the case until the arrival of Shubha and Sau, a sibling duo full of adventure and mischief. Shubha was clever and witty while Sau could only be defined by one characteristic—his endless hunger. Together, these two find themselves in various humourous situations, often as a result of their own doing, which leads to many eventful moments. Desuri, however, has its fair share of characters with unique personalities. Bhaba’s endless canings, Bhabhiji’s innocence, Bibiji’s kindness, as well as loads of others add more colour and atmosphere to this rustic Rajasthani village. Through the eyes of Shubha and Sau, we get a very clear picture of what life in rural Rajasthan was in the 1940s. Join these two on an adventure, or rather a misadventure, of a lifetime that will surely keep you thoroughly entertained.  

Famous Author Mr. Ruskin Bond commented about this work that 'It reminds me of my own childhood' which speaks a lot about this book.

Prithvipal Singh Kanawat

Prithvipal Singh Kanawat is a Civil Servant based in Jaipur, Rajasthan. He belongs to Mirgeshwar Village (Pali district) but was born and brought up in Jodhpur and completed his studies there. He loves travelling and meeting new people. He has also had a keen interest in Rajasthani proverbs and couplets. 

He is related to doyen of Rajasthani Literature Padm Shree Lt. Vijaydan Detha, who was nominated for The Nobel Award in Literature in 2011. Inspired by the quote, “The planet doesn’t need more successful people... it desperately needs more storytellers …” Kanawat was naturally inclined to become a storyteller and this book is the first step towards that journey. His childhood favourites Malgudi Days and its character Swami highly influenced the writing of this book.
