Sir Rabindranath Tagore won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1913 He was the first non European and so far the only Indian to be awarded this most prestigious award any literary artist can dream of Bimala means without mal or blemish in Hindu is married to Nikhil or Nikhilesh Lord of the Universe Theirs is an arranged marriage that was planned even when Bimala was still a little girl Bimala is neither good looking ie she comes from lower status and darker complexion nor rich Nikhil on the other hand comes from a rich family peace loving and passive Nikhil has a handsome aggressive and charismatic friend Sandip who is the leader of the Swadeshi movement This movement was part of the many others eg the non violence movement of Mahatma Gandhi being the most famous that comprised the India Independence Movement that strived to end the British rule in India in the early part of the 19th century Bimala falls in love with Sandip for his zeal ambition and sex appeal Nikhil releases her but then she finds out Sandip’s true colorThe book is composed of several chapters each of them is narrated by either one of the three major characters that reminded me of William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury 1929 minus Benjy its retardate character Rather the 3 narrators perfectly give their views on what’s going on around them from what goes on inside their homes within community and even in the nation as a whole Like Salman Rushdie’s masterpiece Midnight’s Children 1981 this book The Home and the World shows a detailed presentation of India during its fight for independence from British colonizers However if Rushdie was able to present the macro as well as the micro views of this fight for independence through the events that lead to a nation in turmoil and how his characters react to them Tagore chose to focus on his characters’ own turmoil in relation to the changing environment and the opposing forces present in it the new and old realism and idealism the means and the end good and evil within India and Southern Asia The narration is lyrical and personal The plot is thin and simple yet plausible and full of meaning You will have to stop once in a while to savor his thought provoking phrases My favorite aspect of the novel is the remarkable transformation of Bimala from a traditional woman to an awakened citizen who contributes to the movement To give you examples of Tagore’s prose and to illustrate Bimala’s transformation here are her descriptions of herself at the various points in the storyBEGINNING as a dutiful traditional wife “I would cautiously and silently get up and take the dust of my husband’s feet without waking him how at such moments I could feel the vermilion mark upon my forehead shining out like the morning star” MIDDLE as a person supporting the movement ” I was no longer the lady of the Rajah’s house but the sole representative of Bengal’s womanhood”END after being fooled by her lover I could not think of my house as separate from my country I had robbed my house I had robbed my country For this sin my house had ceased to be mine my country also was estranged from meA couple of years ago a smart GR friend commented that he hadn’t read an Indian novel either set in India written by Indian or Indian American novelist that did not have anything to do with poverty Arundathi Roy’s The God of Small Things Rohinton Mistry’s A Fine Balance or even Slumdog Millionaire by Vikas Swarup They all revolve around the fact that there are problems because the protagonists is poor The Home and the World or GHARE BAIRE when its movie adaptation was shown in Cannes 1988 centers on the ideological personal beliefs of the characters and poverty is not really the main or even the secondary issueI am glad that I have read a Tagore It changed my perspective on Indian novels and showed me a firmer grasp on what it took for the Indian people to gain their independence
