More > publishers. It consists of 46 named short rhymes (quatrains), all considered to be in the genre of literary nonsense.

This selection offers the best of Sukumar Ray's world of pun-riddled poetry.Although it was not understood at the time of its publication, many poems in Abol Tabol contain skilfully hidden satire on the state of society and administration of early 20th-century colonial India - mostly Bengal. Embedding implied hidden meanings of a subversive nature in nonsense rhymes for children, was Ray’s clever way of subverting press censorship by the then British administration in India, which was paranoid about seditious and subversive literature.< Less

We are all 'in transit' between the earthly and the divine, and all struggling for meaning - and peace.< Less
