Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904) was a luminary of Russian literature who gained a prominent place in the international literary landscape as a short fiction writer, a playwright and a massive influence in the literary world. Chekhov was actually a medical doctor throughout his professional life, but lucky for us also indulged in the literary arts to the extent of becoming a towering and influential figure in Russian and world literature. Such impact on the world of literature can be seen in the various translations and adaptations of Chekhov's works into a wide range of languages throughout the world. In total, Chekhov wrote 319 short stories, two novels and 16 plays apart from several articles and essays. Here we three of his stories in audiobook format for speakers of Urdu and Hindi.
