The Bengali Sherlock Holmes
- Dear Holmesians,
Recently I read an article in Livemint about Bengali detectives. We all know about the famous ones,- Feluda and Byomkesh Bakshi, but there seems to be many.
I was intrigued to find that Rajshekhar Basu, known by his pen name Parashuram had created a detective, Saralakhyo Hom, and his assistant, Botuk Sen.The puns on the names clearly indicate the influence of the Canon .
The link to the article is here- http://www.livemint.com/Leisure/LibY45l3PWg0B2DYI8SsCN/Calcutta-noir.html.
By the way, it has a reference to our honoured member, Dr Pinaki Roy's book.
