  • Description

    Like Dickens, Saratchandra had a bag of wonderful tales'— The Hindu the Final Question (Shesh Prashna) is one of Saratchandra Chattopadhyay's last novels and perhaps his most radically innovative. The novel caused a sensation when it was first published in 1931, drawing censure from conservative critics but enthusiastic support from general readers, especially women. The heroine, Kamal, is exceptional for her time. She lives and travels by herself, have relationships with various men, look poverty and suffering in the face, and asserts the autonomy of the individual being. In the process, she tears apart the frame of the expatriate Bengali society of Agra, where she lives. Through Kamal, Saratchandra questions Indian tradition and the norms of nationhood and womanhood. The Final Question transcends time and will appeal to readers of all ages. Translated by Department of English, Jadavpur University

    extending cordial thanks

    No amount of praise would be sufficient for the translators of this wonderful novel of Sratbabu. This is a 'translation' at its best. My sincere respect to the translators who have made such an extremely difficult task an eloquent one....
