The birth centenary of Ashapurna Devi (Ashapurna Debi) has brought a tide of literature in the readership and in the world of publishing. This tide has inspired the writer, the attempt to know anew, the passion to evaluate her writings in the hopeful goddess literature as if a rich mineral wealth is arranged in the light of another vision.
The hopeful goddess had a completely different feeling about composing short stories. She has a weakness in the corner of her mind. While publishing his best-selling short story, she made some statements in this regard which are especially noteworthy. “I’ve been writing for over 50 years, and I’m still writing almost non-stop. So, there’s no way to exclude all the other writings, not to mention the number of short stories that have become innumerable” – Ashapurna Devi.
The Favorite Story piece that was published with her 50 short stories on the birth centenary of Ashapurna Devi is truly unique. The stories are not selected in chronological order, but one thing that must be mentioned is that the story Patni O Preyoshi (Wife and Beloved) is the first adult story of Ashapurna Devi which was published in the autumn issue in 1938.
Ashapurna Devi was a housewife. The long 50 years of her pen are also flowing. In that gust of wind and force, the society has lost a lot of fun and the social mentality has changed. Eternal values have changed. Again, in the air, the writer’s pen and language change, the form, the method of application, above all, the attitude changes.
