Description
About The Book

First Published in Bengali in 1861, The Poem of the Killing of Meghnad (Meghnadhadh Kabya) by Michael Madhusudan Dutt is an epic in blank verse that has Meghnad (Indrajit), Ravan’s warrior son who is slain by Lakshman in the Ramayana, as the tragic hero. The most subversive and original feature of Madhusudan’s epic is that, in a startling departure from the Kshatriya warrior-code, Meghnad is killed by Lakshman in a temple where he has no means of defending himself. Daringly new and inventive for its time, the poem is an expression of Madhusudan’s mind, of the Bengal Renaissance, and even of the wider Indian modernity that has emerged from that era.

This lyrical and vigorous translation by William Radice is accompanied by an extensive introduction, detailed footnoted and a comprehensive survey of Madhusudan’s use of Indian and Western sources.

About The Author

Madhusudan initially had ambitions as a poet in English, but on returning in 1856 to Calcutta embarked on his career as a dramatist and poet in Bengali, earning his living as an Interpreter and Clerk in the Police Court. After a legal battle to secure his inheritance, he sailed to England in 1862, to read for the Bar at Gray's Inn. The financial arrangements he had made to pay for this went wrong, and he moved his family to Versailles. He was saved from destitution by Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar.

On returning to Calcutta again in 1867, Madhusudan found it difficult to practise as a barrister. Extravagance and alcoholism overcame him, and he died three days after Henrietta. They were buried in Lower Circular Road Cemetery. A bust of Madhusudan was installed there in the 1950s.

Testimonials

I recieved my Mahavir pendant today. It is wonderful. I was recently in Delhi and as it was a spiritual trip visiting Jain temples in Rajasthan, Agra, Rishikesh and Delhi i did not have the opportunity to shop much. The pendant is beautiful and i shall treasure it. I have attached a picture of me in India. Your country and the people will always be in my heart.
Evelyn, Desoto, Texas.

Muhammad Arshad Nadeem
It is always a great pleasure to return to Exotic India with its exquisit artwork, books and other items. As I said several times before, Exotic India is far more than a highly professional Indian online shop; it is in fact an excellent ambassador to the world for the splendour of Indian wisdom and spirituality. I wish a happy and successful New Year 2017 to Exotic India and its employees! You can be very proud of yourself!
Dr Michael Seeber (psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Essen/Germany)
My last order arrived in a reasonable amount of time, regarding the long way it had to take! I am glad to find this and some other ayurvedic remedy, as well as books and much other things at your online-store and I am looking forward to be your customer again, some time.
Andreas, Germany.
