Miya Fuski is a fictional character created by Jivram Joshi for children's literature in Gujarati language. He is mostly accompanied by his friend, Tabha Bhatt. Both characters were inspired by the people of Kashi during Joshi's stay there. Joshi wrote more than thirty stories on the characters. They became popular and were later adapted into plays, TV series and a film.

Characters and story

Miya Fuski and his friend Tabha Bhatt are the central characters in the story. Miya Fuski is tall and thin while Tabha Bhatt is short and pot-bellied. Miya Fuski is a Muslim and wears lehenga, waistcoat and cap. He is bald and has a long beard with large round eyes. Tabha Bhatt is a Hindu Brahmin character who wears typical paghadi on his head, loose cloth on his shoulder and dhoti. Other recurring characters are Bibi, wife of Miya; Dala Sheth, a merchant.

The real name of Miya Fuski is Fattu Miya. He worked a guard. Once he assumed a group of donkeys as a group of thieves and boasted about himself. Later he hides and becomes Miya Fuski from Fattu Miya. Fuski literally means timid in Gujarati. He is a novice and vulnerable person. He is involved in situations where he behaves stupidly and hilariously but the end result is always in his favour in the end. Tabha Bhatt accompanies him in his misadventures. Miya is timid inwardly and often boasts of his bravery but he finds his way with his wit in difficult situations.


The stories of Miya Fuski are adapted into plays, TV series and a film. Bhargav Joshi, son of Jivram Joshi, adapted the stories in a play, Miya Fuski Ane Tabha Bhatt. Asit Kumarr Modi produced and Sandeep Patel directed a TV series, Miya Fuski, for DD Gujarati. The characters were also adapted in a children's Gujarati film Miya Fuski 007 in 1987 starring Johny Walker and Kishor Bhatt in the lead roles. The film was directed by Manhar Raskapur and produced by Mukesh Pandya.


The stories first appeared in Zagmag starting 1945. They were later published as book format by Sandesh Balsathi Granthmala in 1946, by Bharati Sahitya Sangh in 1951, by Zagmag Prakashan in 1953 and by R. R. Sheth ni Company in 1963.
