About The Book:
Bengal in the last decades of nineteenth century and the early decades of the next was a cauldron of change. A Weakening old order symbolized by feudal regalia was giving way bringing in its wake sweeping social, material and cultural transformation. Caught in the midst of these changes is the house of the Chowdhurys. Through the eyes of the narrator, Bhutnath, whose life is inextricably linked with the Chowdhury household and his extraordinary relationship with the youngest lady of the house, the novel not only tells us the story of its gradual decline but also the disintegration of a feudal system. And a profound statement on life and its destiny. In a finely evoked translation from the original Bangla, Sahib Bibi Golam brings to a wider readership a classic of modern Indian literature.
Bimal Mitra (1912-1991) emerged as one of the foremost Bangla novelist of the post Second World War period. Extremely popular, Bimal Mitra was also a prolific writer with over five hundred short stories and a hundred novels to his credit. His other major works include Begum Mary Biswas, Kori Diye Kinlam, Ekak Deshak Shatak, Pati Param Guru, Ami and Raja Badal.
