About this Item: Unicorn Books, New Delhi, India. Softcover. Condition: New. In ancient times, the jester was a very important person because he could always make people laugh and be happy. Many humorous tales are attributed to these jesters. There are stories of Birbal, patronised by Emperor Akbar, of Tenali Ramakrishna, from the court of Krishna Deva Raya of south India, and of Gopal, the chief jester in the court of Maharaja Krishna Chandra of Bengal. Maharaja Krishna Chandra ruled during the Islamic period in medieval India. His biggest rival was the governor of Murshidabad, referred to as the Nawab in all the stories. One is not sure who the Nawab actually was. He could very well have been a fictitious character created to make the stories interesting. Indeed, neither the Maharaja nor the Nawab is depicted as intelligent or witty. Many stories are told of how the Maharaja tries to outwit the Nawab and how Gopal assists in these endeavours. In every story, it is Gopal who emerges the hero. Printed Pages: 56. Seller Inventory # 108166

About this Item: Createspace, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Poison Tree A Tale of Hindu Life in Bengal BY Bankim Chandra Chatterjee TRANSLATED BY MIRIAM S. KNIGHT WITH A PREFACE BY EDWIN ARNOLD, C.S.I. PREFACE had been asked by the accomplished lady who has translated the subjoined story to introduce it with a few words of comment to the English public. For that purpose I commenced the perusal of the proof sheets; but soon found that what was begun as a literary task became a real and singular pleasure, by reason of the author s vivid narrative, his skill in delineating character, and, beyond all, the striking and faithful pictures of Indian life with which his tale is filled. Nor do these qualities suffer, beyond what is always inevitable, in the transfer of the novel from its original Bengali to English. Five years ago, Sir William Herschel, of the Bengal Civil Service, had the intention of translating this Bisha Briksha; but surrendered the task, with the author s full consent, to Mrs. Knight, who has here performed it with very remarkable skill and success. To accomplish that, more was wanted than a competent knowledge of the language of the original and a fluent command of English: it was necessary to be familiar with the details of native life and manners, and to have a sufficient acquaintance with the religious, domestic, and social customs of Bengali homes. Possessing these, Mrs. Knight has now presented us with a modern Hindu novelette, smoothly readable throughout, perfectly well transferred from its vernacular (with such omissions as were necessary), and valuable, as I venture to affirm, to English readers as well from its skill in construction and intrinsic interest as for the light which it sheds upon the indoor existence of well-to-do Hindus, and the excellent specimen which it furnishes of the sort of indigenous literature happily growing popular in their cities and towns. The author of The Poison Tree is Babu Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, a native gentleman of Bengal, of superior intellectual acquisitions, who ranks unquestionably as the first living writer of fiction in his Presidency. His renown is widespread among native readers, who recognize the truthfulness and power of his descriptions, and are especially fond of Krishna Kanta s Will, Mrinalini, and this very story of the Bisha Briksha, which belongs to modern days in India, and to the new ideas which are spreading-not always quite happily-among the families of the land. Allowance being made for the loss which an original author cannot but sustain by the transfer of his style and method into another language and system of thought, it will be confessed, I think, that the reputation of Bankim Babu is well deserved, and that Bengal has here produced a writer of true genius, whose vivacious invention, dramatic force, and purity of aim, promise well for the new age of Indian vernacular literature. It would be wrong to diminish the pleasure of the English reader by analysing the narrative and forestalling its plot. That which appears to me most striking and valuable in the book is the faithful view it gives of the gentleness and devotion of the average Hindu wife. Western people are wont to think that because marriages are arranged at an early age in India, and without the betrothed pair having the slightest share in the mutual choice, that wedded love of a sincere sort must be out of the question, and conjugal happiness very rare.

About this Item: Createspace, 2012. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The Poison Tree A Tale of Hindu Life in Bengal BY Bankim Chandra Chatterjee TRANSLATED BY MIRIAM S. KNIGHT WITH A PREFACE BY EDWIN ARNOLD, C.S.I. PREFACE had been asked by the accomplished lady who has translated the subjoined story to introduce it with a few words of comment to the English public. For that purpose I commenced the perusal of the proof sheets; but soon found that what was begun as a literary task became a real and singular pleasure, by reason of the author s vivid narrative, his skill in delineating character, and, beyond all, the striking and faithful pictures of Indian life with which his tale is filled. Nor do these qualities suffer, beyond what is always inevitable, in the transfer of the novel from its original Bengali to English. Five years ago, Sir William Herschel, of the Bengal Civil Service, had the intention of translating this Bisha Briksha; but surrendered the task, with the author s full consent, to Mrs. Knight, who has here performed it with very remarkable skill and success. To accomplish that, more was wanted than a competent knowledge of the language of the original and a fluent command of English: it was necessary to be familiar with the details of native life and manners, and to have a sufficient acquaintance with the religious, domestic, and social customs of Bengali homes. Possessing these, Mrs. Knight has now presented us with a modern Hindu novelette, smoothly readable throughout, perfectly well transferred from its vernacular (with such omissions as were necessary), and valuable, as I venture to affirm, to English readers as well from its skill in construction and intrinsic interest as for the light which it sheds upon the indoor existence of well-to-do Hindus, and the excellent specimen which it furnishes of the sort of indigenous literature happily growing popular in their cities and towns. The author of The Poison Tree is Babu Bankim Chandra Chatterjee, a native gentleman of Bengal, of superior intellectual acquisitions, who ranks unquestionably as the first living writer of fiction in his Presidency. His renown is widespread among native readers, who recognize the truthfulness and power of his descriptions, and are especially fond of Krishna Kanta s Will, Mrinalini, and this very story of the Bisha Briksha, which belongs to modern days in India, and to the new ideas which are spreading-not always quite happily-among the families of the land. Allowance being made for the loss which an original author cannot but sustain by the transfer of his style and method into another language and system of thought, it will be confessed, I think, that the reputation of Bankim Babu is well deserved, and that Bengal has here produced a writer of true genius, whose vivacious invention, dramatic force, and purity of aim, promise well for the new age of Indian vernacular literature. It would be wrong to diminish the pleasure of the English reader by analysing the narrative and forestalling its plot. That which appears to me most striking and valuable in the book is the faithful view it gives of the gentleness and devotion of the average Hindu wife. Western people are wont to think that because marriages are arranged at an early age in India, and without the betrothed pair having the slightest share in the mutual choice, that wedded love of a sincere sort must be out of the question, and conjugal happiness very rare.

About this Item: V & S Publishers, New Delhi, India. Softcover. Condition: New. Gopal Bhand, the barber, was the chief jester at the Rajbari (Royal Court) of Raja Krishna Chandra Rai, the famous Emperor of Krishnanagar (Nadia), West Bengal during the 18th century. Gopal was a genius and is included in the genre of Birbal and Tenali Raman. Countless stories of his exploits where he outwits other fellow courtiers and men are narrated in Bengal and Bangladesh even to this day. Gopal as a court jester was able to influence the King in many matters. He always had wit at his disposal, whether in the form of puns, riddles, doggerel verse, antics or babble which he used to soften the blow of a critical comment or edgy moment in a way that prevented a dignified personage from losing face. A hilarious bouquet of Gopal`s timeless anecdotes are presented in this book which really are eye openers ? imparting new thoughts, new dreams, new solutions, new ideas, new wordplay, newer takes on humour, parodies, satire and a window to a whole new world of imagination and basic wisdom. The stories of the book are short with a heady mix of wit, comedy, funny description and wonderful characterisations dusted with Gopal`s inimitable sprinklings of humor which provoke one to think beyond the seemingly simple things. The book offers tales of wise men and their battles of wit during the medieval royal Bengal; stories of knotty problems with ingenious solutions and mind fertilizing anecdotes which not only inform, advise, enthuse, inspire and amuse but impart specific and terse wise lessons appropriate to the issues at point to `Manage the Problems` neatly. The author has taken great care to narrate the anecdotes in the most descriptive manner focusing on wise lessons at the end of each account laced with equally fascinating illustrations. The presentation of the book is unique as it can be read from any chapter, but still it will stimulate the reader ? like a pealed banana, which can be eaten from any side, thus enjoying its sweetness. It`s a fascinating assortment of entertaining anecdotal short stories guaranteed to hold the reader till the last page. Printed Pages: 264. Seller Inventory # 108717
