About the Book

In this collection of two novellas and six short stories of Bengal's illustrious Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore's 'Galpaguchchho', translated into English, the women are the unmistakable nucleus of the fictional narratives. Whether it is the deep, brooding world of Charulata and her affectionate bonhomie with brother-in-law Amal in 'Nastanirh: The Broken Home', or the world of the lonely, feisty Giribala in 'Manbhanjan: The Appeasing', the surreal world of the mute girl Subha, or the two disparate worlds of Sohinee and Neela, mother and daughter, colliding with each other in 'Laboratory', the feminine subjectivity in an overarching patriarchal setting is not only noteworthy, but unforgettable. The diverse trajectories of all these women have been traced in the selection of the tales, ranging from Charulata, the reticent woman belonging to the aristocratic gentry of the 19th Century Bengal to Sohinee and Neela of 'Laboratory' (written just a year before Tagore's death) who are amorous, sensuous and also ostentatious, never hesitant to speak their minds. All these eight works of fiction by Tagore are deep, enthralling sagas where women have been scripted in an inimitable, powerful aura. The translator has sincerely attempted to portray the essence of their complex emotional world, originally depicted by Gurudeb Tagore.She has received the International Reuel Prize (Category: translation) for 'The Broken Home' in summer 2016.
