    Dhruba Hazarika's Luck is a collection of short stories that are remarkably simple yet it manages to make a deep impact Each of the stories reflect the sensibilities of the author to animals birds or any creature for that matter You might call me orthodox but I liked this book because it had the feel of the stories which were suitably modified for a young reader in our school textbooks
