Why not historical novel Devi Choudhurani novel?
Devi Choudhurani novel has some similarities in historical events. But this is not a historical novel. The author has written this novel based on a simple incident. However, the picture in front of which the events of this book are acted, i.e. its social climate is absolutely true.
At that time, people belonging to different classes used to commit robberies, and Bengalis were also involved. At that time, men of a famous Brahmin clan of a village on the banks of Chalanbil killed their new son-in-law while committing robbery by boat and gave up that sinful business in repentance. The incident of robbery is famous in Rajshahi Pabna district.
Devi Choudhurani novel – The country-wide peace and orderly rule of the Mughal Empire has collapsed, while the new British rule has not been established in the country, the juncture of these two eras. The political twilight became particularly conducive to anarchy at that time. Looting and dacoity were daily occurrences. Bankim Chandra zamindar collected the name Harivallava from a work written by him.
Devi Choudhurani is a historical data, i.e. absolute lack of data, but the value of any epic depends absolutely on such a work. Anandamath, Sitaram and Devi Choudhurani sat down to compose Bankim-Kavya. Although Raj Singha is much more historical than these three novels, it would be wrong to call it poetry, if by poetry we mean a review of the heart of life.
The substance of religion is culture, the fruit of it, the higher life
Bankim did not intend all these three epics to write history or even to paint a historical scenario. To illumine the heart of man with divine light, to elevate him to the highest level, was the work of his genius. In the very first chapter of this Devi Choudhurani book, he described the words of Professor Seeley – “The substance of religion is culture, the fruit of it, the higher life”.
That is, to maintain the connection between heaven and earth, the greatest of human life and the practice of true spiritual knowledge, moderation and self-sacrifice, can be achieved only if these three practices are practiced for many days. Prafulla’s extreme example in life. Shanti and Sri also went through this sadhana, but the results differ. This difference is a testament to Bankim’s craftsmanship.

Shanti, Prafulla and ‘Shri’ – it’s easy to mistake these three heroines as cast in the same mould. All three are incomparably beautiful, more beautiful inside than outside, more sweet, sister of the heart’s desire, helper in difficult tasks, minister in crisis, brave in danger, joyful in victory. All three are daughters of the very poor, fatherless, helpless, married young, but all three are husbandless. All three had to go through similar extraordinary events in life.
Confronted with that severe poverty, celibates like widows do not have enough things in their homes, physical strength and exercise habits, Gita reading, religious education all these developed their character in youth. Most interior villagers the gentle woman of the civilized Bengali, eventually became the rebellious daughter, the bandit chief, the idol of the lion army or Bhairavi. Bankim Chandra well-crafted writing has beautifully portrayed their life stories.
