One of my favorite books..I also loved watching this as a serial episode those days in Doordarshan and later in Sony. Illustrations of R.K.Laxman are simply superb and the background music of L.Vaidyanathan is pleasant.
Watching these episodes now is a favorite pastime for me :) This is lot a better than those crap TV shows which are shown these days monotonously in all TV channels.
View it online or buy the DVD and recapture those memories!!
