‘One Thousand Days in a Refrigerator is a collection of fourteen short stories originally written in Odia, and translated into English by Snehaprava Das. Translation, we are all aware, is an extremely difficult and challenging enterprise. And yet we see translators like Das (or say, Arunava Sinha from West Bengal) boldly take the risk of offering us an ‘authentic’ taste of vernacular literature. ‘
