 Feluda - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Indeed Feluda typifies the middle class Bengali mindset's return to a somewhat eremite-type innocence by symbolizing a detective hero who is, somewhat like the Bengali middle class, a socially non-conformist and underpaid male youth, forever unemployed and perennially ineffectual in establishing any fruitful relationship with a lady.

Feluda became the son of the paternal uncle of Topshe.

Feluda’s trademark style of puffing away at a Charminar or his agility of action may carry shades of the cigar-smoking Holmes persona.
Barring these stylistic similarities, Ray’s Feluda, alias Pradosh Mitter, is essentially a son of the soil, as desi as a carrot-chewing Karamchand or a Byomkesh Bakshi.
Packed with action, from Feluda doing the disappearing act, only to resurface in the guise of a hippie, to a plane crash and the cracking of a coded message, this adventure has the trio zeroing in on the vandal who’s hell bent on making away with a piece of Ellora’s rich heritage.

 Review On Feluda Stories - Satyajit Ray by PrashD -- MouthShut.com
Feluda, or Pradosh Mitter, starts out in Ray’s stories as an amateur sleuth who is forever looking out for more challenges and is in relentless pursuit of the truth.
Feluda grows from an amateur, bit unsure sleuth, into a confident and sometimes cocksure private detective.
Feluda is shown as a human character susceptible to mistakes yet very sharp in his instincts and one who has never failed to crack a case.

 Feluda
Feluda is a Holmesian combination of mental and physical agility -- almost 6 feet tall, he is in fine shape due to his early-morning yoga -- and all his skills are called upon during the course of the story.
Feluda's household arrangements are a little mysterious too -- there is an occasional mention of Topshe's father, who seems to live in the same house, but no other relatives seem to live there or run the household.
Between 1965 and 1992, Ray wrote a total of thirty-five Feluda stories (in Bengali, his native language), featuring the master sleuth Pradosh C. Mitter, his assistant Topshe, and Lalmohan Babu (alias Jatayu), a bumbling writer of crime fiction.

 Divergent Rays : A Review by Susan Chacko of Two Books by Satyajit Ray [Parabaas Translation]
Ideally, the locale should be deeply woven into the plot itself, and the Feluda stories certainly live up to this ideal, as when the burglar in Mystery at Golok Lodge counts on the daily loadshedding to cover his escape.
From an adult perspective, one of the charms of the Feluda stories is the sly commentary sprinkled throughout, which undoubtedly reflect the author's opinions:
Feluda's world is strange in one notable respect -- there are no women.

This interest is also reflected in his stories, and Feluda often has to solve a puzzle to get to the bottom of a case.
Even Feluda's friend Jotayu, the novel writer shares this interest, he insists on naming one of his novels "Vancouver-er Vampire" (The Vampire in Vancouver), regardless of Felu's objection that a city as modern as Vancouver is not a good setting for a horror story.
The Feluda stories are narrated by Topse, his cousing, something of a Watson to Feluda's Sherlock.

Topshe, the teenage narrator of Feluda stories, is a proxy for the young readers; but it is Feluda’s friendship with Jatayu that is the lifeblood of the series.
It is the bridge that connects Feluda’s dry wit and a somewhat detached and cynical worldview with Jatayu’s quintessential Bengaliness - fears, prejudices and insecurities in a warm and loving heart.
