Tags: ‘[T]oday I will narrate that untold tale after all these years. Cronies , lend me your ears.’Urged by his friends , Domorudhor embarks on a journey to recount his incredible adventures filled with magical characters. A friendly fish-hungry ghost , a puffed-rice and fried-peas eating corpse , a man-eating tree that devours a ghost , a human clone , a woman selling brinjals inside a crocodile’s stomach , a half-human , half-bovine creature—all appear in Domoru’s tall tales.In Domoruchorit , Troilokyonath Mukhopadhyay uses magic realism to weave sociopolitical realities of nineteenth-century Bengal: casteism , child marriage and widowhood , colonial oppression , Swadeshi movement. The stories celebrate the adda culture , carry the flavour of an old-world charm and male bonding , and are often conversational and digressive , being full of wit and satire.
