My after reading opinion (January 23, 2017):- I remembered when I was a kid, my teenage was filled with the memories of "Feluda". A Bengali teenager without Feluda is the worse thing I ever thought. Feluda or Prodosh Chandra Mitra is the main character of the popular Bengali private detective story and novel series named "Feluda", which was written by Satyajit Ray, who got inspired from the famous English private detective story and novel series named Sherlock Holmes By Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

Whatever, Feluda series contents 35 complete stories and novels, and 4 unfinished writings. When I read those stories, it was the original version, no comics versions had been published. Recently in the beginning of the year 2017, I went to the Memari Book Fair (January 17, 2017 - January 23, 2017) at my home town Memari and I found those comics series of Feluda. Though they didn't published all 35+4 stories of the original story versions as comics books. Right now (at the time I am writing this article) they published 12 to 13 stories as comics version. However those are great comics for children and of course the wonderful drawing. These comics versions of Feluda series reach a new milestone in the field of Bengali Literature.

I bought two pieces of "Napoleoner Chithi - Comics Version". Why two books? Because I have two sweet nieces and I wanted to give those books to them as a gift. They would love to read this awesome comics. Even I enjoyed reading the book. It helped me to recall my old memories.
