About the Book

Bankim Chandra Chatterji was one of the most notable Indians of the 19th century. A writer by choice and temperament, he was one of those remarkable personalities whose thoughts and ideas had a great impact on the evolution of modern India. He functioned in the delicate sphere of thought and emotion. He moved and moulded people through his writings.

Bankim made a significant contribution to the revival of the country’s ancient past which constituted the bed-rock of the new nationalism. To the nascent nationalism of the country, he sought to impact strength and dignity and constructive orientation. Bankim envisaged a moral society based on the welfare ideal where physical force is not altogether ruled out but where enlightened public opinion regulates human relations.

This book would be of interest to those who want to know Indian Literary movement and the manner in which it intersected with a range of social, culture and political issues. The ‘non-specialist’ reader, too, would be interested in the way in which the book makes both Bankim and his context accessible.
