The Bengali novel Kalantar is written by Tarasankar Bandyopadhyay.
In Bengali fiction, Tarasankar Bandyopadhyay is established in his own glory. He wrote numerous stories and novels, wrote plays, essays, autobiographies and painted many pictures in his last years. On the death of a baby bird, seeing the miserable condition of the bird’s mother, he wrote a four-line poem on the door of the living room with chalk. In his words, “My literary pursuits began that day.” (Tarashankar Smritikatha – Volume I, Amar Kaler Kotha)
Author Tarashankar Banerjee, however, did not start his literary career with poetry. His first book of poetry was Tripatra but it was not suddenly appreciated in the society. His first novel, Dinar Dan, was published serially but was not published in book form. As a result, he became frustrated.
At that time he was temporarily leaning more towards politics, but his relationship with the literary world was not severed. Literature was practiced along with politics. At that time he was the assistant editor of Purnima published from Lavpur. He wrote many poems, stories and biographies in that magazine.
But because of his involvement in politics, he was tortured by the British and had to go to jail several times. At that time he was very much mentally disturbed. He then withdrew from active politics but remained steadfast in the work of the country as before. He can be made the best of the country through literary practice, this consciousness inspires him in a new way. But then another tragedy struck his life, and his daughter died.
Traumatized by family and personal experience, Tarashankar Banerjee embarked on a conquest of Bengali literature with an inexhaustible store of experience. At that time, his literary life underwent a radical change from the story published in Kallol Patrika. His writings on slum life were appreciated by the readers at that time. She took shelter in the slums and the environment in a romantic way in the middle.
One of his books Raskali is recognized as literary. Kalantar’s novel and Jalsaghar’s book of poetry made him the most popular among the readers.
All in all, Tarasankar Banerjee’s store of experience became inexhaustible. He came down to literature with that treasure. It is not only necessary but also inevitable for a writer to have such an experience. As a result, his stories and novels are so diverse. From zamindars, upper caste people to lower caste kahar, bauri, bagdi, dom and even thieves, thugs, murderers etc. are included in his story. From the zamindar’s palace to the poorest hut – nothing escaped his notice.
Kalantar novels are mostly about broken-down life stories, meaning he writes more about the stories of low-income people. In fact, where writer Tarashankar Banerjee has used his direct experience, he has become one with the characters. He himself was the son of a zamindar and had active and direct experience in the work of Brahmin zamindari, but that zamindari system was on the verge of decay. Even though he understood that, he could not forget the aristocracy of Neil’s blood, so when he went to draw the character of the zamindar, he himself became agitated. He was not always able to maintain distance with the original character. So all the emotions are characterized by the character of this novel. As a result, the stories in this novel do not become dramatic in special moments but become super-dramatic.
Writer Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay is the story of his break-up or just the story of his break-up. He has tried to highlight the former idea. He wanted to draw a picture of the past with the eyes of the past. So that picture does not come alive on the bloody shores of reality or shake the whole existence. But he had great potential in lower-class stories.
Yet the author Tarasankar’s story became the subject of our constant reading, not only for the diversity of subjects, he tried to paint a picture of the disintegration of rural society, and the story of the lower class people. At least he understood that this man is the pillar of our civilization, the country cannot be understood without them.
Author Tarasankar Bandyopadhyay’s novel Kalantar and Jalsaghar occupies a special place in the readership. So our hope is that this beautiful novel will surely be appreciated by the readers. So we have a link to the PDF file of the novel on the page of this website.
