About the author

Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay

Bankimchandra Chattopadhyay was born in Kantalpara, West Bengal, in 1838. In 1858, he became the first Indian to earn a BA degree. He served in the Indian Civil Service as Deputy Magistrate and Deputy Collector between 1859 and 1891. Bankimchandra's first novel Rajmohan's Wife was written in English. His first Bengali novel Durgeshnandini appeared in 1865. He went on to write thirteen more novels, of which Kapalkundala, Mrinalini, Bishabriksha, Krishnakanter Will, Rajani, Rajsingha and Devi Choudhurani are the most famous. The epoch-making Anandamath appeared in 1882; the verse Vande Mataram from the novel became the anthem of nationalists during the freedom movement, and is now the National Song of India. Apart from his novels, Bankimchandra has to his credit a considerable body of non-fiction. He was the editor of Bangadarshan, perhaps the most influential literary magazine of its time, which began publication in 1872. Bankimchandra died in 1894.
