Arun Kumar Mukhopadhyay has edited notable story book Ekushti Bangla Galpa.
The famous bengali story book Ekushti Bangla Galpa (Twenty-One Bengali Stories) has been edited by Arun Kumar Mukherjee. This collection of short stories written in Indian languages approved by the Indian National Library is planned and compiled for publication in various languages. This collection of Bengali short stories includes twenty-one Bengali stories. In this book, the picture editor of the people and society of our time has been highlighted.
Rabindranath Tagore was the first successful poet of Bengali short stories in Bengali literature. In a word, it can be said that the short story came to life through his hands. Poet Rabindranath Tagore has taken Bengali literature to a unique level. Short stories developed unprecedentedly in Bengali literature through its various short stories. He has left his mark on all aspects of short stories. We can say in one word that he has made a comfortable appearance in the field of social problems, philosophy, love, nature, romance, poetry, history satire, etc. Poet Rabindranath Tagore wrote one story after another from 1890 to 1940.
That is why the work that has been going on for half a century has fascinated Bengali literature. Needless to say, he is one of the most popular poets and writers.
In the period of Rabindranath, Trailokyanath Mukherjee, Prabhat Kumar Mukherjee, Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay and Pramatha Chowdhury have enriched the collection of Bengali short stories in various ways. Arun Kumar Mukherjee, the editor of this book, has collected the selected short stories in the present collection and included them in this book.
The Bengali short story after Rabindra-Sharat embodies the diverse experience of the Bengali mentality of the last 50 years. That is why the stories have been compiled from the diverse collection of short stories from the post-autumn Bengali short stories to the recent episodes.
During this time, short story writers were able to write stories in relative peace and comfort, despite the global economic downturn and the anti-British movement in India. In this episode we see writers like Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay, Achintya Kumar Sengupta, Premendra Mitra, Buddhadeb Basu, Manish Ghatak, Prabodh Kumar Sanyal, Bhabani Mukherjee. Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, Manik Bandyopadhyay, Annadashankar Roy, Bonaful, Bibhutibhushan Mukherjee, Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, Rabindranath Maitra, Parimal Goswami, Sajanikanta Das, Premankur Athroj, Goddess, Bimal Mitra.
In this episode, those who have started writing stories have got a direct idea about the tumultuous era that has arisen along with the rise of literary consciousness. At this time the social atmosphere is turbulent, disturbed. This atmosphere has made their vision a bit distracting, sharp and dull.
The romanticism of this episode or the Kallol episode, the bohemian attitude and the adventures of anchored love are missing in the story of this episode. In our society this phase has changed and innumerable.
How many breakdowns, how many problems, how many extraordinary exceptions in the life of the society and the individual, the effect of the change that has flowed together has sharpened the curiosity and understanding of the narrator.
The prevailing rules and regulations have been relaxed, how many eccentricities and abnormalities have been observed, how many people are suffering from subtle dissatisfaction, how many new taste of taste, how many new vows and new forms of life struggle in promise – it was unthinkable in pre-war era. War is a terrible earthquake.
As a result, the cover of politeness, the girl’s protection, family values, love, compassion and religious reform have all been destroyed in this earthquake. In the middle of it, one can hear the dream and dream of building a new society. Subodh Ghosh, Satinath Bhaduri, Santosh Kumar Ghosh, Narayan Gangopadhyay, Narendranath Mitra, Navendu Ghosh, Nani Bhowmik and Jyotirindra Nandi are the ones whose changes have taken place in short stories.
The names of the earlier storytellers to be remembered are – Jagadish Gupta, Manik Bandyopadhyay, Achintya kumar Sengupta, Prabodh kumar Sanyal, etc. Bani Roy, Sushil Ghosh, Charuchandra Chakraborty and other writers belonging to the diverse Saturday letter group.
At this time the struggle for liberation from subjugation is going on in India. Everyone from the oppressed exploited to the deprived common people. This episode saw bloody fragmented independence, resulting in a wider social imbalance. The words of hope and joy uttered in the post-independence darkness were overwhelmed by the cries of the refugees and the deprived.
A new group of story writers appeared in this turbulent bloody homeland. Samaresh Basu, Bimal Kar, Ramapada Chowdhury, Syed Mujtaba Ali, Harinarayan Chattopadhyay, Prabhat Sarkar, Shanti Ranjan Bandyopadhyay, Saroj Bandyopadhyay, Pranatosh Ghatak, Sudhirranjan Mukherjee, Sushil Roy, Ranjan, Sachindranath Bandyopadhyay, Sulekha Sanyal, Gourkishor Ghosh, Ashish Barman, Amiya Bhushan Majumder, Kamal Kumar Majumder, Gaurishankar Bhattacharya, Deepak Chowdhury, Mahasweta Devi and many more.
Again in this episode the story writer immediately sees the storytellers of the previous episode as companions. In fact, the authors of these two episodes are not seen separately. Narendranath Mitra, Narayan Gangopadhyay, Santosh Kumar Ghosh, Samaresh Basu, Bimal Kar, Ramapada Chowdhury, Navendu Ghosh, Nani Bhowmik, Sushil Jana, Shanti Ranjan Bandyopadhyay, Swaraj Bandyopadhyay, Ashutosh Mukherjee were all born between 1916 and 1922 AD.
They have entered their youth at the beginning of the Second World War and at the earliest moment of the total turnaround in Calcutta and Bengal. Since then, they have been vigorously writing short stories about 30 years (1910s to 1970s), bearing witness to the diverse changes in the lives of society and individuals.
Another episode of Bengali short story has shrunk in the second half of this century. This episode includes young storytellers who were born between 1930 and 1940. In fact, they are the new generation of writers. Syed Mustafa Siraj, Moti Nandi, Sunil Gangopadhyay, Shyamal Gangopadhyay, Baren Gangopadhyay, Shirshendu Mukhopadhyay, Prafulla Roy, Atin Bandyopadhyay, Dipendranath Bandyopadhyay, Debesh Roy, Sandipan Chattopadhyay, Kabita Singha, Loknath Bhattacharya, Shankar. The editor also included the short story writers of the time in his compilation.
From this collection of short stories, two stories of two famous authors of modern Bengali literature Dak (Call) of Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, and Namuna (Sample) of Manik Bandopadhyay had to be dropped at the last minute due to copyright issues.
