Sarbapeksha Sankatmay Shikar by Syed Mujtaba Ali, Read by Shila Biswas

What is sport to one may be fatal to another. And if this sport is hunting and if that turns out to be an addiction, sport no longer remains a mere sport. This addiction of General Zaroff is no more slaked by natural games. He wants to play with someone who is as clever as himself. The man hunt is the theme of our story this month, The Most Dangerous Game, written in 1924 by the American author and journalist, Richard Connell (October 17, 1893 – November 22, 1949). The story is clenched by the General’s statement: “One of us is to furnish a repast for the hounds.“ This masterpiece like many of his stories was filmed in 1932. We have recorded a Bengali translation by Syed Mujtaba Ali (September 13, 1904 – February 11, 1974).
