Some of the best stories in Hindi

Narrated exceptionally well, in a professional story teller manner with modulation of voice to convey tones of the dialogue.


I have heard three stories so far (there are 41, most narrations are about 20-3
40min though a few are shorter and a couple are over 1hr) all reminding me of my love for good literature and Hindi language.


The stories that I heard so far rank similar to top 20 of Mansarovar (Premchand).

Very very highly recommended especially for those who, like me, loved hindi stories in school days, but have lost touch for decades.
