The Bridge on the River Song and Other Stories from Garhwal

Author Name: Ajay Jugraan | Format: Hardcover | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

The Bridge on the River Song and Other Stories is a refreshing collection of twenty-three short stories with elements of romance, bravery, suspense, compassion, history and mystery. A few of them are retellings of folk stories from the hills of Uttarakhand, particularly Garhwal, and then there are stories from within the author's family in Dehradun. All the stories have a connection with Dehradun or a character from Garhwal–Kumaon or they start or finish in Uttarakhand. A few are translations of the author's Hindi audio stories already on the YouTube channels #StoryJam and #KuchhKisseKuchhKahaniyan. Written in simple English, they can be read by any English speaker without consulting a dictionary. Some stories have a few Sanskrit and Hindi words and phrases (with side-by-side English translations and a glossary at the end), adding to their linguistic richness.

Ajay Jugraan

Ajay Jugraan is a lawyer by profession but a poet–writer at heart. He describes himself as a ‘human, Indian, Hindu, traveller, poet and writer’ who was ‘born, brought up and spoilt’ in Dehradun. Widely travelled, he has advised clients from all major continents and more than thirty countries. A history buff and patriot, he has been a part of some initiatives of the National Museum Institute of India. The Covid-19 pandemic lockdown gave him the much-needed pause to take up writing seriously. His first book, Antrang Satrang, a collection of seventy Hindi poems was published in December 2021 and well-received by readers, professors, writers and journalists. His poems have also appeared in newspapers and magazines. He translates from Hindi to English and vice versa as a hobby as well as professionally. He heads the NGO Him Jagriti concerned with health and education in remote hill areas. Him Jagriti's programme supports scores of poor orphaned students.
