The stories in Thakurmar Jhuli are based on Bengali folktales, and the introduction to this anthology was famously authored by the Nobel-Laureate Rabindranath Tagore.
Rabindranath Tagore, a Nobel Laureate, wrote the preface to Thakurmar Jhuli. Bishnu Dey wrote "Sat Bhai Champa," a more thorough rendition of the tale, in 1944.
Francis Bradley Bradley-Birt translated the story into English and published it in Bengal Fairy Tales in 1920 under the title The Seven Brothers Who Were Turned into Champa Trees. The story was also published in French in 1923 under the title Les Sept Fleurs de Champaka et la Fleur de Paroul ("The Seven Champaka Flowers and the Parul Flower").
Gaganendranath Tagore's painting of Sat-Bhai Champa is regarded as a masterpiece of modern Indian art. The Academy of Fine Arts in Calcutta is presently home to the picture.
