The Exploits of Professor Shonku: The Diary of a Space Traveller and Other Stories

Satyajit Ray (Author)
Synopsis Professor Trilokeshwar Shonku, eccentric genius and scientist, disappeared without a trace after he shot off into space in a rocket from his backyard in Giridih, accompanied by his loyal but not-too-intelligent servant Prahalad, his cat Newton, and Bidhushekhar, his robot with an attitude. What has become of the professor? Has he decided to stay on in Mars, his original destination? Or has he found his way to some other planet and is living there with strange companions? His last diary, found in a crater created by a meteorite, tells an incredible story. Other diaries unearthed from his abandoned laboratory reveal stranger and more exciting adventures involving a ferocious sadhu, a revengeful mummy and a mad scientist in Norway who turns, famous men into six-inch statues, From every adventure, the indomitable Professor Shonku emerges unscathed, aided unfailingly by his amazing intelligence, sure presence of mind and of course his many remarkable inventions like the Annihilin Gun, the Air-conditioning Pill, and the Microsonography. Exciting, imaginative and funny, these classic science-fiction adventure stories by the master storyteller are presented here in a brilliant new translation.
