Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay Stories

Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyaya (Author) Rani Ray (Translator)

During his lifetime, Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhaya wrote 16 novels and over 200 short stories, many of which have been translated into several other languages, including English, Malyalam, Telegu and Sinhalese. Many of his works have also been adapted into films, the most famous being Pather Panchali, Aparajito, Apur Sansar and Chander Pahar. The brilliance of Bibhutibhushan’s stories lies in his preoccupation with a whole universe of human beings discovering their destinies amidst their complicated circumstances; as well as for the feeling of intimacy he invokes among his readers, making even ordinary life seem extraordinary. For this reason, Bibhutibhushan has remained one of the most beloved and well-known writers of our times. The stories in this collection, introduced by the author’s grandson, Tathagata Banerjee, are some of the finest examples of his storytelling.

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.
