Noi-Chhoi: At Sixes and Sevens

 
Swapna Dutta (Editor) Nupur Gupta (Translator) Ashapurna Devi (Author)
Synopsis Every writer tries to bring his or her own philosophy of life and convictions into his/her creation" said Ashapurna Devi. Noi-Chhoi occupies a very significant place in her writings because it narrates the typical happenings of the middle-class Bengali families but is special so far as its technique is concerned. She focuses her attention on the six girls and their families. Being educated and conscious, they are modern and open in their outlook. That is why they are able to see the hypocrisy, dishonesty and falsity of their family members. Each has her social and domestic problems, facing different kinds of complications that arise from the meanness and narrow outlook of their family members. This is what brings the six together. Each of them react differently but they are unified in their protest, despite their difference in status. They revolt against the inequality that stems from the gender-based discrimination ingrained in our social psyche. In this novel Ashapurna Devi adopts a new mode of perception discarding the stereotyped technique of telling a story. That is what makes it special. Technically the novel is an example of Ashapurna Devi's exposure to the new method of experimentation in fiction. As if she is holding a kaleidoscope before the readers and turning it round and round to show the various conditions and situations the central characters are subjected to.
