PRATHAM ALO (AKHANDA) (Hardcover) Price: Rs. 475

Pratham Alo (Bengali) is a book that provides the readers with key insights into the lives of several historical figures in recent history, bringing out their nobility in a unique way.

Summary Of The Book

Pratham Alo (Bengali) is a stunning piece of literature that documents the lives of historical characters from several walks of life, including education, religion, politics, and theatre. Although this book is written in a manner that it appears fictional, it is packed with historical facts about people in history that most of us don’t know much about. The uniqueness of this book lies in the fact that Gangopadhyay has presented the readers with a humanized portrait of icons such as Swami Vivekananda, Ramakrishna Paramhansa, and Rabindranath Tagore.

Gangopadhyay tells the readers about Tagore’s interest in his niece and sister-in-law, the fall of the zamindars and the royalty, and the fear in Ramakrishna Parmahansa’s heart as he lay terminally ill, suffering from throat cancer. By bringing to light their understandable shortcomings as humans, Gangopadhyay is able to present the readers with a vivid picture of their nobility.

Apart from these history-makers that shaped Bengal as well as the entire nation, Gangopadhyay also includes a love story revolving around two fictional characters, Bharat and Bhumisuta. This love story assists in camouflaging one of the greatest lessons in history as a fictional work. Gangopadhyay also tells the readers about Swami Vivekananda, who was named by the Raja of Khetri, who also supported him financially for his Chicago trip for the World Parliament of Religions. He also explains how Rabindranath Tagore’s first fan wasn’t anyone from Bengal, but the grief-stricken Maharaja of Tripura, who found peace in reading Tagore’s poetry. Crisply written and factually backed-up, Pratham Alo (Bengali) is definitely worth reading for those who want to gain insights into the lives of individuals who have shaped Indian history.

About Sunil Gangopadhyay

Sunil Gangopadhyay was a Bengali poet and novelist.

Gangopadhyay has also written Anno Jiboner Shad, Adhar Raater Atithi, and Alpona Aar Shikha.

He was born on September 7th, 1934, in Faridpur, Bengal, British India. He went on to study at Dum Dum Motijheel College, City College, Kolkata, and Surendranath College. He completed his Master’s degree from the University of Calcutta. Through the course of his literary career, Gangopadhyay authored over 200 books. In 1953, Gangopadhyay and his friends launched Krittibas, which was a Bengali poetry magazine. He has been awarded several times for his immense contribution towards literature. Some of the awards he has been honored with are the Sahitya Akademi Award, the Ananda Puraskar, and the Bankim Puraskar. Gangopadhyay also served as the Sheriff of Kolkata in 2002. He died on 23rd October, 2012, following a heart attack.

As a deliverable from Flipcart: GOOD, as a piece of literature : VERY GOOD

Product: The physical state and quality of the product (this book) was good, price reasonable, and was shipped to my door step before the estimated date.

Content: I enjoyed this book. I have a long desire to read it and finally when I got it enjoyed it a lot. This book describes the story of life and society of people in Bengal during the period of 1880 to 1900. This book tries to articulate the advent of renaissance in the state Bengal at that period of history, where Kolkata (Calcutta then), the Indian capital then, was the hub of the activities. That is why the author has named thi…

Perhaps the best book based on 19th century

The book is based on the memorable characters and incidents of the late 19th century and very early 20th century. To know the richness of bengali culture one must read this book. The events are historical and is written in a very informative way. You can know a lot of new things about Swami Vivekananda and also Raindranath Tagore.
At the end of the book, it will come into our mind whether the character named Bharat really existed or not.
Thanks to Sunil Gangopadhay for giving us such an novel which teaches us a lot of things in our life. I think it is the best novel I have ever read in…

Few peers,indeed.

In the voluminous Prtham Aalo, Sunil Gangopadhyay had quite lucidly proved himself once again.
His mastery over the art of creating fiction-omnibus basing the real history is well known. Sunil has few peers indeed.

when time itself is the protagonist

Rabindranath, Ramkrishna paramhansa, Swami Vivekananda, Keshab Sen, Jyotirindranath Tagore, J.C. Bose, and all those sons of Bengal, who took literature, science, spirituality to another level.

Prathom aalo not only is a great read but also retelling history at its best. A style invented by Sunil Gangopadhay himself and he is best at it. one of my favorite books

excellent book

Flipkarts delivery service cannnot be matched with anyone else, it arrived to me 2 days before the delivery date. Well talking about the book, it is of different taste, you seem to be travelling to another era where you can see what is happening all around. The experience is left to the reader, how they interpret it, but above all its an excellent book.

Very good book.

Nice print, good binding. good TAT on delivery. About the content, if you are interested about the Renaissance period of west bengal you will like it. Extremely well composed. Go for it if you are a good reader. Not for casual reading.

Pratham Alo

Good book and the packaging was fully satisfying.
The hard bound copy is a delightful read. The book was in great condition when reached me. Though the delivery was a tad bit late. Upon receiving the book I did not mind the delay since I had been searching for this book in the stores in vain. So altogether a nice experience.

Excellent packaging and delivery

I had already read this book and bought it as a gift for my brother. The book is one of the best of Sunil Gangopadhyay. It is a must read for every body knowing bengali. I think there is a translated version of this book also and should be referred by people wanting to know about the bengal renaissance.
