A celebrated satirist and humour writer of modern Hindi literature Harishankar Parsai wrote some amazing stories, novels and memoirs. His satire was so humorous and yet so deep that even today when I read his work I feel nostalgic about the times he wrote and I live. Even today, there is ample scope of relating his work to our sophisticated so called modern life. I have almost all of his works in my personal library amassed over a period of time, thanks to the publishers. The story (Vaishnav ki Fislan) which I am presenting here is one of his acute criticism on the way capitalist operate their business. The way he exhibits the whole plot and then suddenly in the end the reader realises a bitter truth behind the whole idea of satire is simply wonderful.
