Bankim Chandra Chatterji
1838 1894

Sri Bankim Chandra Chatterji's first literary effort, Durgesanandini, published in 1865, was also the first novel in Bengali. With a giant's stride he took Bengali literature to the pinnacle of glory and exerted great influence on many modern Indian languages in which Bankim's works were translated. He is the author of the famous national song
Vande Mataram, which was on the lips of everyone during our freedom-struggle.

Kapalkundala (1866) is Chatterjee's first major publication. The heroine of this novel, named after the mendicant woman in Bhavabhuti's Malatimadhava, is modelled partly after Kalidasa's Shakuntala and partly after Shakespeare's Miranda. He had chosen Dariapur in Contai Subdivision as the background of this famous novel.

Rishi (Sage) Bankim Chandra was called "Sahitya Samrat" (Emperor of Literature) by all his contemporaries and has been known as such in all literary circles in Bengal and outside.

Sahitya Samrat Rishi Bankim penned the most powerful National song "Vande Mataram" in a unique mix of Sanskrit and Bengali to the effect that it created a new fervour for nationalism and became the mantra for liberation of India.

I bought from Kolkata`s College Street old book shops a copy of the English novel RAJMOHAN`S WIFE by Rishi Bankim and it is with me till date. Strangely the very first novel by a Bengali was not in Bengali but in English. Rishi Bankim`s KRISHNA CHARITRA is a masterpiece, as is his HISTORY OF BENGALIS or THE HINDU MATRIMONIAL CODE which is every lawyer`s delight!

When I was a Teacher of English in Rajarhathat Shiksha Niketan for Girls in 1966 I took the students for a visit to the shrine that is the birthplace of Rishi Bankim at Naihati Kantalpara in the North 24 Parganas where local trains go from Sealdah in Calcutta. The place breathes serenity even today. It must be visited by each and every one of us.

When Rishi Bankim crossed his middle age, Tagore was still crossing his teenage; on one occasion in an open ceremony Rishi Bankim took off the garland from round his neck and placed it round the neck of the YOUNG TAGORE and said: Navya yuger bhavya kavi, ei mala tomar-i prapya (Elegant poet of the new age, this garland is fit for you alone). Truly the Bengali proverb says: Ratan-e ratan chine-y...A jewel alone recognises another jewel ! How many literary giants in the world have set such a record of magnanimous showering of lavish praise?
kuran c ghosh
No other literary genius in the world continued to serve an alien ruler and write so cleverly and eficiently as Rishi Bankim who penned VANDE MATARAM which made the Brits tremble in their trousers.
KURAN C GHOSH
It is a literary wonder that only Rishi Bankim could create in the form of: THE HINDU MATRIMONIAL CODE in English, AND both KRISHNACHARITRA and KAMALAKANTER DAFTAR in Bengali.
Sandip Chatterjee
