    Saratchandra Chattopadhyay tells the tragic story of Devdas and his doomed love in this translation of the original Bengali classic.

    Summary of the Book

    Devdas is a young man who is in love with Paro. They have been together since childhood, and their love spans their entire life. However, Paro’s parents have other plans for her. They want to marry her off to another man, and this marriage will prove destructive to Devdas’ sanity. His grief, and the story of his drunken stupor as he pines for his beloved Paro, is a classic story that has been told and retold throughout the decades since its first release. This English translation brings out the wonder and tragedy of the original Bengali novel for a new generation of readers.

    Author Info
    • Saratchandra Chattopadhyay (18761938) was born in Devanandapur, an obscure village of Bengal.His childhood and youth were spent in dire poverty as his father, Motilal Chattopadhyay, was an idler and dreamer and gave little security to his five children. Saratchandra received very little formal education but inherited something valuable from his fatherhis imagination and love of literature.He started writing in his early teens and two stories written then have survivedKorel and Kashinath. Saratchandra came to maturity at a time when the national movement was gaining momentum together with an awakening of social consciousness.Much of his writing bears the mark of the resultant turbulence of society. A prolific writer, he found the novel an apt medium for depicting this and, in his hands, it became a powerful weapon of social and political reform.

    Well delivered

    I am glad that flipkart delivered the book on time and in a well-packed condition. The book was perfectly new.

    The translation is very good.

    The publishers could have used a better book cover.
