Read this short story बालक (The Immaculate Child) by Premchand, translated by me. I haven't seen it in English translation or in any shorter anthology in Hindi anywhere, except of course in Mansarovar series and Sahitya Akademi's mega 6-volume collection. I may be mistaken. But this is an unusual story, to say the least. It seems too radical for Premchand's times. And adds to Premchand's greatness. I'm surprised why it did not become one among his most talked of stories.
