Making a Mango Whistle


Bhibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay

Making a Mango Whistle (Aam Anthir Bhenpu) was first published in 1944, when the author’s path-breaking Song of the Road (Pather Panchali) was abridged for children. Immortalized on film by Satyajit Ray, the story of Apu and Durga is a classic of Bengali children’s literature.
