Bipradas is my first foray into classic Indian Literature; and boy! What a journey it has been.
Set in the year 1935, in a rural backdrop of Balrampur. Bipradas is a story of the family life of Bipradas, being ingrained with the Indian traditional customs, observed in an orthodox Hindu family. It is a tale of how Indian and Modern cultures collide.
Bipradas being the protagonist is the charismatic and benevolent character and is Zamindar (Landlord) of Balrampur. He is a man with high principles and values, from which he never wavers off. And holds high regards for Justice and truth. He is the key force behind the family and family Business, he is very dear to his stepmother.
Bandana, Cousin sister of Bipradas’s wife Sati is a well-educated girl. Who does not believe in following ancient Hindu culture and is highly influenced by Western Culture, and is taken by the charismatic personality of Bipradas.
While Dwijdas is an impulsive extremist and eccentric free bird, who doesn’t believe setting his roots in one place. But fate it seems to have other plans for him.
What I liked about the Book
Language is very easy to understand. Author has synced the characters of the book so well that when you read it’s like you are part of that book. The beauty of the book is its amalgamation of Cultures, values and different characters, all put into a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Last few chapters were tearjerkers as books hardly ever make cry.
What I didn’t like about the book
Though this is my personal view, I felt that Bandana talked too much for my liking.
