CHANDER PAHAR (S) (Hardcover) Price: Rs.80

Chander Pahar is a tale of adventure and thrill written by Bengali novelist Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay. The story revolves around Shankar Roy Chowdhury, a 20 year old man and his adventures in Africa.

Summary Of The Book

Chander Pahar opens with the following premise - Shankar Roy Chowdhury, 20, was slated to take up a job in a jute mill after graduating from college. However, his interest lay in exploration and adventure. When he got the opportunity to work as a clerk in the Ugandan Railways, he jumps at the prospect and leaves home.

The story traces his journey through Pre World War I Africa, where he faced the perils of the man eating lion and the venomous Black Mamba. On his adventures through the continent, he meets Portuguese gold digger and adventurer, Diego Alvarez, who shares with him anecdotes from his expeditions with Jim Carter. He talks of the largest diamond mine that he found in Richtersveld, where his partner was killed by the mythical monster Bunyip.

The rest of the story traces the adventures of Alvarez and Roy Choudhury as they set out to find the lost diamond mine of Richtersveld. The narration is simple and the plot offers edge-of-the-seat thrills. Chander Pahar is considered to be one of the most important adventure novels in Bengali. Despite its first publication in 1937, the book is still in circulation and has been translated to English titled Mountain Of The Moon. The illustration on the cover has been done by renowned filmmaker Satyajit Ray.

unputdownable

if you are a Bengali and you can read, the one book you must read is this one. I read it when I was a boy reading in class V. and today I am again reading this book with the same thrill that I felt as young boy. it is not a book, it is a treasure that you will be proud to possess. the narrative, the adventure and the story---- everything is just awesome for this book . the cover image and the inner drawings are unbelievably amazing. if you are reading this, my advice is not to wait and just add it to your cart. I am sure you SHALL love it.

touching a legacy

Chaander Pahar, a remarkable creation of Sh Bhibutibhusan Bandopadhyay has become an integral part of the legacy associated with Bengali Children's Literature. However, this particular book enthralls not only children but people obsessed with Bengali Literature of all ages till today. A graphic and poignant description of the African Veld perfectly blended with suspense and thrill has made the book a real treasure hunt. I got the chance of reading this book when I was studying in class six. Nowadays, the very habit of reading books is on a constant decay. However, books like Chander Pahaar... ()
