The Mistake and Other Stories contains 10 of the best stories written by Dr. Bhabendra Nath Saikia.
As is well known, Dr. Bhabendra Nath Saikia was one of the most versatile geniuses in the cultural field of Assam. Although his academic career was most impressive, his vast range of interests would not allow him to rest satisfied in the classroom alone, and he branched out into various cultural fields including film making. Dr. Bhabendra Nath Saikia is recognized as one of the top ranking writers of Assam, and much of his work has already been translated into many languages both in India and abroad. In the span of more than half a century of writing, he has produced a large number of valuable literary works including short stories, novels, articles, children’s literature and drama. But it is probably through the medium of his short stories that he has contributed most to Assamese literature. The subjects of these stories are almost always about the lower middle class of Assam, and although one might say that this would limit the scope of his work, such is his skill and so diverse his outlook, that within this self imposed limit, Dr. Saikia projects a very deep and all embracing picture of humankind in general. This is the result of a deep insight and human sympathy, together with his keen observation of the ordinary day to day life of typical Assamese life and society.
