Restless Waters of the Ichhamati

 
Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya (Author)
Synopsis

Restless Waters of the Ichhamati is a celebration of flora and fauna, particularly of the profusion of commonly found plant life that flourishes in most regions of Bengal. The gaze of a slow-moving attentive river-farer brings into view glimpses of vibrant plant life, traces of human habitation and changes of sky and water in the course of seasons. These are signs, evoking the flow of time in which generations unknown have lived and those unborn will live along the Ichhamati’s banks as it wends its way through Jessore district towards the Bay of Bengal. Born of this tension between the ephemeral and the forever, the novel’s own riverine course dispenses with chapter breaks-a writer’s decision that the translation follows.

About the author

Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya

Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya (1894-1950), a major novelist from Bengal, is one of our greatest writers. His Pather Panchali (‘Song of the Road’) has been immortalized through Satyajit Ray's film. Aranyak, composed between 1937-39, was based on Bibhutibhushan’s long and arduous years in northern Bihar, where he came into contact with a part of the world that, even now, remains unknown to most of us.
