Book Title: The Greatest Bengali Stories Ever Told Author: Arunava Sinha Category: Fiction Price: MRP 800 Book Description: Some of the world’s finest short fiction has originated (and continues to flow) from) the cities, villages, rivers, forests and plains of Bengal. This selection features twenty-one of the very best stories from the region. Here, the reader will find one of Rabindranath Tagore’s most revered stories ‘The Kabuliwallah’ in a glinting new translation, memorable studies of ordinary people from Tarashankar and Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay, the iconic Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s wrenching study of Bengali society, ‘Mahesh’, as well as over a dozen other astounding stories by some of the greatest practitioners of the form—Buddhadeva Bose, Ashapurna Debi, Premendra Mitra, Satyajit Ray, Ritwik Ghatak, Mahasweta Devi, Sunil Gangopadhyay and Nabarun Bhattacharya, among others. These are stories of anger, loss, grief, disillusionment, magic, politics, trickery, humour and the darkness of mind and heart. They reimagine life in ways that make them unforgettable.. . #laibarydeals #laibarynp #laibary #nepalreads #bookstagram #bookstagramnepal #bookworm #bookdragons #booknerd #readabook #readingisfun #onlinebookstore #bookoholic #nepalonlineshopping #thegreatestbengalistoriesevertold #arunavasinha #fiction #bestseller #novel #romance

Lucky  A good translation has always left me feeling unfairly fortunate. Like I've found something I shouldn't have but was always meant to. That I may be privy to tales of other tongues, secrets of faraway places, those words I would never have the fortune to sound out with mine own lips may grace me with their wisdom. I see in this work all those pages worn with habit, the first-readings full of tears and feeling, an intimacy with the old masters that far surpasses any human dealings.  And when a collective is this stalwart, I feel it all twice over.  #tagore #saradindubandopadhyay #mahaswetadevi #ashapurnadebi #saratchandra #arunavasinha #isitweirdthatimissjiba #librarybooks  #lovemylibrary
"As I read, I realised that literature was the only key that could help me escape from the locked room of life. Or, you could say, literature and art could take me beyond the limits of what this world, this universe, can offer me. People like me always want to escape the world, they want it very badly—and they choose art as their spaceship." —Abandon by Sangeeta Bandyopadhyay Translated by Arunava Sinha ⭐⭐⭐⭐ -------------------------------------------------------------------- #books #bookstagram #instabooks #instareads #reader #reading #recentlyread #readmyowndamnbooks #booklover #booknerd #bookworm #bibliophile #abandon #sangeetabandyopadhyay #arunavasinha #tiltedaxispress
Adding to my TBR - Fever: Mahakaler Rather Ghoda by Samaresh Basu and translated by Arunava Sinha . . .  Known as one of the greatest novels about the Naxalite movement, it is a dark and deliberate look at the life of a revolutionary, physically and emotionally broken by years in jail. “But when he is moved to a better jail and eventually freed, memories return to haunt him. He looks back upon his youth, his marriage, his home in the Terai foothills - and he remembers too, the friends he has killed, the revolutionary colleagues he made and the ideals he once believed in.” . . .  Been meaning to do a read-along on an Indian regional lit book for a while now. But not sure this would be a good pick. Politics does not make great bookfellows (pardon my massacre of that). . . .  #bookish #bookitybookbooks #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #reading #igreads #goodreads #booklove #bookworm #bookaholic #bookaddict  #fevermahakalerratherghoda #samareshbasu #arunavasinha #readindianregionallit #bengaliliterature #naxalitemovement

That is Arunava Sinha, writer and translator, who gave a lovely session at #thebookshop today. I could only see his lips move though, clearly late, clearly left outside.  #arunavasinha #writer #books #instabooks #literature #delhi #delhievents #jorbagh #literary #discussion #talk
A lovely translation by Arunava Sinha of a Bengali short story that I picked on Juggernaut and thoroughly enjoyed reading. Have been using the Juggernaut app a fair bit these days. Time constraints have woefully cut down on library visits and I end up purchasing books online or on Juggernaut. It means I no longer have piles of books glaring at me accusingly as the overdue fines begin adding up, but all the same miss the library ritual. * * #arunavasinha #shirshendumukhopadhyay #theauntwhowouldntdie #shortstories #juggernaut #translations #bengalishortstories #regionalindianwriting #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #library
For the love of witnessing observing conversations, Rabisankar Bal's Dozakhnama was a natural choice. And more than that my own imagination of a soirée I someday wish to host in honour of some of the world known and unknown historical figures, living or dead, to have my kind of little mad-tea party.  The book, originally written in Bengali and translated by Arunava Sinha in both Hindi and English, is a fantastic imaginings of a conversation between two literary giants; MIRZA GHALIB and SAADAT HASAN MANTO,  from within their respective graves.  An abandoned manuscript of Manto -  an imaginary conversation he always dreamt he had with Ghalib & drawn up in the book - in custody of a writer (now in disarray) in Lucknow, reveals a wonderful world weaving the lives of Ghalib and Manto into a beautiful "dastan" taking the reader through history and culture of a people and generations living in two different centuries. Yet in the travails & stories that they share, they find a common ground. The literature, their literary style, poetry, esotericism of a muse, all is interwoven with times and people and culture that lived with them. Everything is put up for a tête-à-tête in the privacy of their respective graves; in Delhi and Lahore.  Dozakh, which means hell, I surmise is a metaphor, and Dozakhnama is not a conversation in hell, but a story of the seeming hell that both Ghalib and Manto witnessed in their respective times.  It's an intellectual, historical & cultural journey, in an imaginary set-up (a literary tool), that reader is taken on, interspersed with beautiful poetry fitting well into context.  I preferred Hindi translation, primarily, as I wished to savor Hindi literature. It was a chance find while on a lookout for something in contemporary Hindi literature and Dozakhnama proved to be a delightful enriching reading experience.  #conversations #metaphors #dozakhnämä #dozakhnama #literarytools #rabisankarbal #manto #ghalib #mirzaghalib
Book launch of the Indian edition of 'The Book of Dhaka' ed. by Pushpita Alam and Arunava Sinha is at 7 pm tomorrow at the Jugmug Thela in Saket.  The Book of Dhaka (A City in Short Fiction) may be one of the most densely populated cities in the world – noisy, grid-locked, short on public amenities, and blighted with sprawling slums – but, as these stories show, it is also one of the most colourful and chaotically joyful places you could possibly call home. Slum kids and film stars, day-dreaming rich boys, gangsters and former freedom fighters all rub shoulders in these streets, often with Dhaka’s trademark rickshaws ferrying them to and fro across cultural, economic and ethnic divides.  Just like Dhaka itself, these stories thrive on the rich interplay between folk culture and high art; they both cherish and lampoon the city’s great tradition of political protest, and they pay tribute to a nation that was borne out of a love of language, one language in particular, Bangla (from which all these stories have been translated). About the editors: Pushpita Alam is the managing editor of Bengal Lights Books and in charge of the Dhaka Translation Center, both based at the University of Liberal Arts, Bangladesh.  Arunava Sinha translates classic, modern and contemporary Bangla fiction, non-fiction and poetry into English. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .  #thebookofdhaka #pushpitaalam #arunavasinha #acityinshortfiction #translations #bengalitoenglish #bookgeek #bibliophile  #bookcollector #booklover #bookworm  #bookrecommendation #bookstagram #bookstagramindia #writersofinstagram #bookpost #igreaders #igworldclub #tbt  #ilovebooks  #readersofinstagram  #bookstagramindiafeature  #bookphoto #bookphotography  #yodapress
