I always read and reread Datta with the deepest pleasure. The idyllic Bangla grammo backdrop, the noble ideals of an aspiring age, the underlying flaws and intrigues Oh, I fell in love with Naren as a youngster and I find him irresistible still.

There is something of Dostoevsky’s Myshkin in Naren’s character He’s almost too good, too free spirited for this world. And yet, Naren can be endearingly devious and demanding. I love the scenes where Bijaya and Naren interact.

She can be such a whimsical little tyrant and yet, her love for him comes across so clearly. And, he can be so exasperating in his blindness I like the other characters too He is the surprise package of the story. Sarat Chandra Chatterjee is a master storyteller. In his hands, a simple plot line becomes a beautiful and unforgettable love story. I loved this story. This is the story where a girl named as Vijaya follows the promise of her father.

The story also represents the cultural disturbance of that time. She faced many discrimination and taunting from the people, but still she didn’t move from it. I loved the powerful character of Vijaya. This is a translated version and due to this I have noticed that this book has many grammatical mistakes.

This is a small book, which you can finish in a day. Mar 18, Shilpi Chaklanobis rated it it was chhattopadhyay Shelves: Datta is a simple love story that grips one’s attention till the end.

Depicting each of them with equal panache and beauty The story line is amazing and describes exactly how the Bramho samaj functioned back in those days as well as the zamindari system and its shortcomings. The most righteous love story to me from Indian Subcontinent. Read this minimum for once in a year.

I am a permanent fan of Dutta. Jul 04, Chatyopadhyay Aurita Roy rated it really liked it. Simple elegant gentle and placid, yet full of inner turmoil Of class and gender wars.

Datta By Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay

About Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay. Sarat Fhattopadhyay Chattopadhyay also spelt Saratchandra Bengali: He was one of the most popular Bengali novelists of the early 20th century. His childhood and youth were spent in dire poverty as his father, Motilal Chattopadhyay, was an idler and dreamer and gave little security to his five children.

Saratchandra received very little formal education but inherited something valuable from his father—his imagination and love of literature. Saratchandra came to maturity at a time when the national movement was gaining momentum together with an awakening of social consciousness.

Much of his writing bears the mark of the resultant turbulence of society. A prolific writer, he found the novel an apt medium for depicting this and, in his hands, it became a powerful weapon of social and political reform. Sensitive and daring, his novels captivated the cchattopadhyay and minds of thousands of readers not only in Bengal but all over India. Some of his best known novels are Palli SamajCharitraheenDevdasNishkritiSrikanta in four parts, andGriha DahaSesh Prasna and Sesher Parichay published posthumously I’m forever indebted to the deprived, ordinary people who give this world everything they have and yet receive nothing in return, to the weak and oppressed people whose tears nobody bothers to notice and to the endlessly hassled, distressed weighed down by life and helpless people who don’t even have a moment to think that: They made me start to speak.

They inspired me to take up their case and plead for them. I have witnessed endless injustice to these people, unfair intolerable indiscriminate justice. It’s true that springs do come to this world for some – full of dztta and wealth – with its sweet smelling breeze perfumed with newly bloomed flowers and spiced with cuckoo’s song, but such good things remained well outside the sphere where my sight remained imprisoned. This poverty abounds in my writings.
