Aparajito : The Unvanquished (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs.243



 Aparajito (The Unvanquished) is the sequel to Pather Panchali (Song of the Road), which is the best known novel written by Bibhutibhushan Bandopadhyay

In Pather Panchali, the story revolved around Harihar Roy, his wife Sarbajaya, daughter Durga and son Apu whose vision of the future remains positive. Aparajito carries forward this vision through Apu?s adolescence and youth.

The story takes the reader through Apu?s school days at the village. His thirst for knowledge and an insatiable desire to see the world, drive him to the city where he joins a college for higher education. For the first time in his life he has to battle not just poverty but also the complexities of human relationships and other harsh realities of life, without support or assistance from anywhere. After his mother?s death, a tragic marriage and years of carefree living, Apu finally realizes his responsibilities and returns to his roots accompanied by his like-minded son, Kajal.

In describing Apu and his mother?s grim struggle with poverty their loneliness and other disappointments in life. Bandopadhyay might have turned Aparajito into a tale of woe. What he does, in fact, is just the opposite. It remains truly the story of an unvanquished spirit that rises through all sorrows and grief like a phoenix, triumphant in its ability to retain hope at all times.

Like Pather Panchali, Aparajito reveals the clarity of Bandopadhyaya?s own inner vision, the astute but sympathetic treatment of his characters and his close intimacy with nature.

Flawless

It is a sequel to the flawless Pather Panchali. Needless to say, Aparajito is a close second to the first book - a double treat. Personally speaking, anyone who hasn???t read Aparajito and Pather Panchali books doesn???t know what he/she is missing, and it becomes a pitiable fact that they die ignorant of a blessing called reading.

One of my top two novels of all time

This one is right there at the top with Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment in my reading list. I have read quite a few books (in English and Bengali) in my life but nothing beats these two. If crime and Punishment is all about the conflict that pushes a character into gray,forces him to stand for himself and at the same time doubt his own decisions, Aparajito speaks of the simplicity of human life- people are borne, they experience happiness and sorrow, they suffer and they win. They move on until the end of their time. If crime and Punishment teaches us that being wrong in our own way is b... ()

They move on until the end of their time. If crime and Punishment teaches us that being wrong in our own way is better than being right in someone else's, Aprajito speaks of how life is to be embraced at every moment no matter how hard it hits us. Dostoyevsky's work shows us that truth triumphs in the end while Bibhuti Bhusan's timeless classic gives us a simple truth- Life triumphs over death as we keep on living through sorrow,through all the suffering, through death. Looking for love and truth. Poetry in the form of a novel. Simple and beautiful.

It made me cry and laugh.

For a long time no book has moved me so much as this one. The crests an troughs in Apu's life are so vividly explored, you can't help wondering how a human can take it. I found this translation better than the one by T W Clark and Tarpad Mukherjee for Pather Panchali. For another nice translation by Gopa Majumdar "Feluda" is the next best stop.

I wish Gopa Majumdar sincerely could please translate Kajal in English. Kajal is the sequel to Aparajito.
