Studying in vernacular medium does not always create liking to love and read Engish books. But these people should not be deprived from such lovely English books, so this is my effort to translate these volumes (Vol. 1 and 3 already published and 4, 5, 6 are on the way) in one of the many Indian languages Marathi widely spoken in Maharashtra State. So far, I have got tremendous response from all over including from people living in same small villages in remote areas. They all convey their appreciation via phone, letters and umpteen emails. Many of them say that I have given them a amazing treasure box of the these stories which was hidden from them for all these years. It gives me a real sense of satisfaction. I will sincerely try to keep up the same standard of translation for other books too!
