Paragraph on 'A Book I Have Recently Read'

 A Book I Have Recently  Read

Pather Panchali, Apu in Pather Panchali
Apu in Pather Panchali

   Reading book is my passion. I have recently read a book named "Pather Panchali". It was written by famous writer Bibhutibhusan Bandopadhyay. The novel is about a little village boy named Apu. The main characters of the book are Apu, Durga, Harihar and Sarbajaya. Harihar and Sarbajaya, a rustic couple, spent their days in a miserable distress. But they dreamt of a rosy future. Apu and Durga are their children. Durga died a premature death. It was a great shock to the family. One cannot shed tears when one reads about the death of Apu' s dearest sister Durga. The novel gives us a very living picture of the beauty of a remote village in Bengal. The story reminds us of the hardship of the thousands of poor and helpless people of our country. Really it is an immortal creation of Bibhutibhusan Bandyopadhyay.

The book I Have Recently Read

I have little time to read books other than school books. But l heard the story of "Ramer Sumati" written by Saratchandra Chattapadhyay from my grandpa. The story charmed me very much. Recently I managed to have a copy of the book which I finished in a single sitting. It is entirely the story of a joint family of rural Bengal. Here are few principal characters - Ramlal, the hero, Shyamlal, his step-brother and Narayani, the wife of Shyamlal. Apart from them there are Shyamla's son and Digambari, his mother-in-law. As Ramlal lost his mother when he was only two years and a half, Narayani, the sister-in-law brought him up with all motherly love and affection. Digambari could not tolerate the sweet relation between the two. Ramlal was very wayward and that was at the root of all problems. The ancestral home was partitioned and Ramlal was separated much to the pain of Narayani. The author's portrayal of the characters of Ramlal and Narayani is simply unique. Details of the book cannot be given in this short span. But everybody should go through the book whenever he gets a chance.
