Luck Dhruba Hazarika s Luck is a collection of short stories that are remarkably simple yet it manages to make a deep impact Each of the stories reflect the sensibilities of the author to animals, birds or any creature for that matter You might call me orthodox, but I liked this book because it had the feel of the stories which were suitably modified for a young reader in our school textbooks. A hunt goes brutally wrong in the jungles of Karbi Anglong A young magistrate on a police raid is saved from inhumanity by the sight of a hen and her chicks A solitary bachelor brings home a pigeon and learns the pain of loving a wild thing An egret visits a man on a moonlit night Three schoolboys chance upon a leopard and her kill in the hills outside Guwahati In lean, taut prose Dhruba Hazarika writes of moments when men encounter animals and the natural world often, also the moments when they encounter themselves These are poignant, memorable stories from a literary imagination of uncommon honesty and sophistication
