The Exploits of Professor Shonku: The Unicorn Expedition and Other Stories

 
Satyajit Ray (Author)
Synopsis Professor Shonku cannot dismiss without proof the possibility that unicorns do exist somewhere on earth. In fact, Charles Willard, a fellow scientist, claimed to have actually seen them in Tibet, but, unfortunately, died shortly afterwards. So, when Shonku learns that another expedition is starting off for Tibet, he jumps at the opportunity to trace Willard’s route and find the unicorns. Tibet is just one of the exotic places Professor Shonku’s exploits take him in his volume of stories. In the Sahara Desert he comes face to face with massive pyramid-like structure no one knew of earlier; he travels underwater in a submarine with two Japanese scientists to investigate the sudden appearance of deadly red fish that have taken to eating humans; in the caves of Bolivia he meets a primitive man who has been painting his dwelling with animal figures and strange mathematical formula; and on a peculiar island which has appeared out of nowhere in the Pacific Ocean horrific plants such out all his learning from his brain. Professor Shonku is at the height of his ingenuity and daring in this collection, and thrills and surprises await us around every bend as we follow him on his astonishing adventures.

Satyajit Ray (1921-92) was one of the greatest filmmakers of his time, renowned for films like Pather Panchali, Charulata, ARanyer Din Ratri and Ghare Baire. He was awarded the Oscar for Lifetime Achievement by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in 1992, and in the same year, was also honoured with the Bharat Ratna. Ray was also a writer of repute, and his short stories, novellas, poems and articles, written in Bengalim have been immensely popular ever since they first began to appear in the children's magazine Sandesh in 1961.
