The ‘incident and excitement, anticipation and suspense, and above all the provision of a satisfying ending’ are the characteristics that Adrian Hunter traces in the oral narratives in his The Cambridge Introduction to Short story in English. The short stories of the Sahitya Akademi Award winning celebrated Punjabi short story writer Mohan Bhandari have all these qualities in most of his short stories. That is perhaps the reason that he is counted among the best Punjabi short story writers today.
