The Prince and The Sannyasi (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 350

In 1921, a half-naked sannyasi appears in Dhaka and is identified as the Second Kumar of Bhawal a quintessential zamindar given to hunting, shooting and womanizing who was believed to have died in Darjeeling twelve years earlier. Persuaded to visit his estate, where he is interrogated, the fakir is disowned as an impostor by his ‘widow’, but his sisters swear that he is their long-lost brother. Then begins a legal battle in which the sannyasi seeks to prove his identity while others seek to destroy his claims, and, soon, the whole of British India is divided on the identity of the sannyasi. This book tells the incredible story of the prince as pauper, of pauper as resurrected prince. Partha Chatterjee’s retelling of the notorious ‘Bhawal Sannyasi Case’ – one of India’s best-known and most historic legal battles – has been widely acclaimed and was declared the joint winner of the Rabindra Purashkar in 2003.

The Indian Tichborne case

Prof. Partha chatterjee's research oriented book is based on the startling Bhawal case, which captivated undivided Bengal for nearly two decades in the 1930s and 1940s' The book deals extensively with the legal case concerning the possible identity of the second Kumar of Bhawal, who presumably died in Darjeeling in 1909, due to an attack of biliary colic, but reappeared as a sannyasi in Dhaka after a long hiatus of eleven years.
Was he an impostor and a fraud? Was he murdered in Darjeeling? Was his body cremated? Was he rescued from the crematorium by the sadhus when his body had been abandon

A real treat for history buffs

A real treat for people interested in history (not the boring sort that we had to put up with in school). Not much left to write for review - after the awesome one by 'Happy Reader' :)

The Prince and the Sannyasi

Excellent read-a book that goes beyond the mere facts of what was easily the most celebrated case of its time and tries to explore a possible link to the changing socio economic and political landscape of India in the manner in which things turned out the way they did.The author's erudition is beyond doubt and makes this a treatise of Historical Sociology if one may use the phrase which elevates this book to a level far higher than what the rather innocous title suggests
And on a more hypothetical note one wonders what the approach of a different set of defence lawyers would be had the opportu

A great book

Partha C has written a magnum opus of sorts. The titillating lifestyle of a young man from a wealthy Zamindar family is brought forth with astounding lucidity, so much so, that you will feel you are living the era the book is based on.
