Books like this make you think deep. Lovely translation. I am sure it must be better written in Bengali with a deeper meaning and better style.
Translating Vande Mataram as a poem in to English is unreal and can never have the magical touch as Sanskrit. Vande mataram sounds better than Mother I salute to thee. The narrative of this book is based around a holy man who inspires and motivates people to forgo everything for India's independen Really inspired by the work of Bankim Chandra Chatterjee.

But the objective of the Shonnashi group, is to perish Muslims and uphold the religious values of Hinduism. View 2 comments. Lovely read. I felt so much enthusiastic while reading it. I guess , Every Indian reader should need to read it once. I've enjoyed every word , It was like I was drinking water and pursuing elixir of life. Reading such an amazing thoughts behind the Independence movement showed the foresightedness of the Author. There is nothing that was left within the hands of Indians in that rule.
All British did was snatching of basic rights and personal wealth of indigenous peoples of India. After Mughals, we already were in a condition not to accommodate further trouble considering the available resources and simultaneously the upbringing of children.
All resources were under control of British and prior to that with Mughals. Scarcity was created to manipulate the mind-sets of Indians and made them to do what was instructed, but still the love for motherland bring forth courage and freedom-goals-till-death-wish within all.
Anandmath is just the summary of the brave actions and thoughts of Indians against what they borne in those hard times. However, to face or live that life considering the current scenario is next to impossible.
The time that our forefathers seen and bore. How they had problem with every patriotic action based on their orthodox religious thoughts; and not the Patriotism, which was the foremost demand of that time , so that they could get Muslim centric regions for themselves.
It is painful and disgusting as well. How religion became priority in front of Patriotism? First they had issues with the part stanza of the poem and then when accepted by rest of the members of Indian National Congress, they questioned the whole poem, every single word of that. That also in , when Indians were very close to get freedom. But unfortunately the then leaders of Indian National Congress played dirty politics to accept every single demand of those anti-national elements; and this historic and heroic Poem left aside instead of becoming the National Anthem of India.
This is the Bad fortune of India. Bankim-Da Author was far ahead of his time with his such thoughts that demands only the free people in free Country, India. This book will remain forever in hearts of true patriotic peoples. For me, needless to say, its stands for 5. The plot of the story, touches various segments of the pre-Independence India, whether it is the plight of the people during the Bengal Famine, where hunger turn humans to cannibals or the women's equal participation in the revolutionary activities along their husbands.
The unjust tax policies had forced the people of Northern Bengal to ag "Anandmath" by Bankim Chandra Chatterjee is one of those books which can never fail to precipitate the feeling of nationalism in the mind of an Indian reader. The unjust tax policies had forced the people of Northern Bengal to agitate and then their agitation is elaborately symbolized in this book.
The coming together of people and formation of a congress-ion to fight for their rights was given an interesting turn with the ascetic look and some radical behavior of the revolutionaries. This book is a national treasure of India owing to its simplicity of story telling, the way it expresses the tale of Indian freedom struggle.
The passion in the people depicted in the book is quite relatable to one exhibited during the freedom struggle. The book also highlights the sorry and devastated condition of the people during the Bengal Famine where the people had nothing to satisfy their hunger and all the riches possessed by people were merely a display of no actual use. The book states plight of people in the regions of famine hit poor India The people were depressed to an extent that giving up their life seemed a better option than living a life full of despair.
Just the mere love for family gave them the hope or reason to stay alive. The author also focused on the importance of celibacy to achieve the desired goals.
To renounce the family bonding and focus on the goal is a necessity and the atonement for breaking this vow is only death penalty. It was indeed a book that gave me immense understanding about life of people in India in those days. Bande Matram! The book is precious and no Indian worth her salt can be unbiased while writing a review of this gem of a book.
We have been brought up singing 'Vande Mataram' which is a principal song of the sons; the protagonists. The book is also precious because it gives a glimpse of the life and times of Bengal during Bankim Chandra.
The view that English are ethical and neutral to the struggles of the common mass is amusing. One can find traces of nascent Indian nationalism. This is a book which needs to b The book is precious and no Indian worth her salt can be unbiased while writing a review of this gem of a book.
