‘Bhalo Na Basar Galpo’

By Varta Trust

Dr. Tirthankar Guha Thakurta reviews Sudipto Pal’s same-sex yet universal love story of ‘not being in love’
This photograph is a close-up shot of the front cover of the book reviewed in the accompanying article. The book titled ‘Bhalo Na Basar Galpo’ has been written by Bangalore-based data scientist Sudipto Pal. The book is in Bengali. The photograph shows the book placed flat on a folder made of jute fabric. The front cover is illustrated with the sketch of a shrub-like plant that is rather disorderly to look at. The plant has stems and clumps of leaves drawn in black and white, adorned with a few flowers in bright red. To the lower left side of the plant are what appear to be white broken shards of an unknown object. The sketch is drawn on a greyish-white background. The book title and the author’s name appear just below the sketch. Photo credit: Dr. Tirthankar Guha Thakurta
