Phatik Chand is the endearing tale of a child kidnapped from his home and his adventures after he loses his memory in an accident. The ready sympathy and even generosity of the poor is contrasted with the heartlessness and selfish calculativeness of the rich. A juggler called Harun takes care of him and when he finally regains his memory, Phatik is restored to his family by Harun. The relationship which develops between the boy and the juggler as the central theme of the novel is movingly sketched and delineated.
