Flipkart Official Review

The Resignation or Tyagpatra is one of Jainendras most popular books published in 1937, and re-published in English (an amazing translation by Rohini Chowdhury) by Penguin India. The book though written in a time when every person was searching for an independent voice and way of life is still very relevant in our democratic society. The Resignation is a story of Mrinal, a young woman whose idealism is so strong that her family and the society around her rejects her completely and she is living on her own, facing situations as they come along.

Jainendra weaves the narration from the point of view of Mrinals nephew Pramod, who has adored and loved his aunt with deep passion. The themes of independence and family run deep in this book.Also hailed as a novel of psychological sensibility, The Resignation is an insight into life in those times and for a woman nonetheless as someone who is trying to live life on her terms.

The writing is fantastic. Every word is in its place and most credit goes to the translator (who often gets ignored) for the wonderful derivation of setting, meaning and the right words to add the much needed pace and communicative technique to the book.


One of the giants of Hindi literature, Jainendra introduced the psychological in Hindi fiction. Questions of love, marriage and relationships occupy much of Jainendras works, taking them into the realm of the internal and the intimate. In The Resignation, Jainendra tells the story of Mrinal, a young woman whose uncompromising idealism results in her family and society rejecting her completely. Almost seventy-five years after it was written, the story of Mrinals struggle against stultifying social norms and her fierce individualism remain startlingly relevant.
