  • Another fine pastiche is "The Curious Case of 221B", by Partha Basu, published in 2009 by Harper Collins India. We should also mention a critical work, "The Manichean Investigators: A Postcolonial and Cultural Rereading of the Sherlock Holmes and Byomkesh Bakshi Stories", by the distinguished Dr Pinkai Roy, published by Sarup and Sons, New Delhi, 2008...

  • We had risen to go, but there was something in the woman’s voice which arrested Holmes’s attention. He turned swiftly upon her. “Your life is not your own,” he said. “Keep your hands off it.” “What use is it to anyone?” “How can you tell? The example of patient suffering is in itself the most precious of all lessons to an impatient world.” The woman’s answer...
