The translator is I am a masters student of English literature at a prestigiou s university which is located on the left of Munirka and the world. Born in a Bengali family but raised in Bihar, the socio-cultural background was not fertil e for an indepth Bengali sensibility. Socio-cultural background creates a sensib ility that cannot be created otherwise. However, the sensibility was more language oriented rather t han society oriented.

The main influences for such infusion were Bengali books a nd movies. His short stories deftly show the true pictures of the r ural Bengal. His own life finds voice in these tales. His empathy for the downtr odden and the oppressed people of the society is depicted in his works. The stor y is written in Bengali. At the time when the story was written, the language Be ngali could be broadly divided into two parts: Shadhu and Cholti.

Shadhu was the elitist version of the language that was spoken mostly by the rich and the uppe r castes while cholti was the version used by the poor and the lower castes. The Shadhu bhasha language was flowery and was formally structured while the chol ti bhasha was earthly and colloquial.

At that time, the literary works were gene rally written inshadhu bhasha and for the elite reading class.

Today Shadhu bhas hahas been rendered completely archaic. Though written for a n elite readership, the subjects of his works were mainly the poor and the downt rodden. Therefore, to keep the balance he uses a delicate parity of both Shadhu Bhasha and Cholti Bhasha. The narration is done in shadhu bhasha while the dialo gues are in Cholti Bhasha. Thereby he refrains from putting a foreign language i nto the mouths of the commoners.

Translating such a dual form in the source lang uage into the receptor language is problematic again. Though this dichotomy in the language is an important themat ic aspect of the work, yet I have refrained from word-to-word translation of the Shadhu Bhasha. According to me, that translation should bring out the poignant meaning of the tale rather than become a conscious effort to render it archaic a nd remind the readers with every sentence that the work is a translation of Sara t Chandra Chattopadhyay.

Yet I have tried to keep up the queerness of the langua ge to some extend but mainly due to the sentence construction and use of the lan guage rather than the Shadhu and Cholti dichotomy.

For me the more important aspects of the work were the human emotions as portrayed in the story, the depiction of the mire in the society, the use of th e language irrespective of the shadhu and cholti dichotomy and the culture. It is near impossible to translate the culture bound emotions into English.

Engl ish language is twice removed from the cultural implications of the Bengali cult ure which I have earlier called as the Bengali sensibility. The non-Bengali In dians languages are once removed. Languages are charted with signs of culture an d vice versa. The concept of burning pyre would be very strange for a non-Indian English reader.

And even more the concept of happiness that the Hindu parents f eel in knowing that their pyre would be lit by their son. But knowing that the primary reader of my trans lation is an Indian Prof.

Prasad some how eases my task. I deliberately tried to create problems for my reader by not translating certain Bengali terms into English and refrained from giving a footnote or a glossary. However, these words are important cultural markers that chart a map through the story and helps to I hope so to further the thematic aspect of the story an attempt to rope in the readers into the act of translation.

The terms alta the crimson coloured liquid used to apply on the feet of Bengalee women , singur v ermillion , dhuno holy smoke used during religious occasions , hari bol the gods name, that is chanted during the funeral procession , ghat eg.

Burning ghat, ba nk of a river, bank of a pond are deeply rooted in the culture and as such to f ind an equivalent term in English is near impossible and according to me even fu tile and unnecessary. These particular terms also follow a specific pattern to h eighten poignancy of the story. Sarat Chandra frequently uses very long sentences often bringing together a whol e gamut of feelings together.

I have tried to stick to this form as much as poss ible but often the sentences in English tend to sound idiotic. Yet probably this aspect of the translation keeps ali ve the queerness of the language and the difference. The writer also uses poetic construction of the sentences. This gives i t a sense of continuation that I too have tried to indulge in the translation.

It gives a more immediate sense or even a heightened sense of the words. These repetition works like magic in Bengali but cannot be used in English. The words, Kaditeh kaditeh crying crying , in Bengali heightens the poignancy of the situa tion but in English would sound like a nursery rhyme.

The words, muchiteh muchit eh wiping wiping in Bengali refer to a sense of decision along with wiping one s tears but in English I could find no equivalence. Other phases like ghuriya gh uriya, songe songe, dekh dekh, and mone mone are used in the text.

But Sarat Chandra does not use the word in a ben ign way, he uses it as an instrument of social criticism. She belonged to a low caste and therefore the society treated her more as a non-human being. I would like to conclude by answering one question of Mr. Gupta that I mis sed. What is the spatio-temporal and socio-cultural location of the translator and th e reader?

Located at room number 59 at Tapti hostel and it is two at night, my socio-cultu ral location is just about to collapse out of fatigue.

A Collection Of Bengali Short Stories

What about the reader? Pl ease reply. Old mister Mukhopadhyay was a wealthy grain merchant. His four sons, three daughters their own children as well , sons-in-law, neighbours, servants —it became a festival.

All the villagers gathered to watch the much-hyped funeral. Weeping, the daught ers applied thick layers alta on both the feet of Ma and smeared sindur on her h ead.

After smearing the forehead with sandalwood, the daughter-in-laws draped Ma in an expensive sari and with the end of the sari wiped her feet. Old Mukhopadhyay bade his life partner goodbye for the last time with a calm dis position. Drying his tears, he started consoling the aggrieved daughters and dau ghters-in-law. Stirring up the morning sky with cries of hari bol, the whole vil lager marched ahead with the family.

Another being who was standing aloof also b ecame a part of this group. She was walking towards th e village market carrying some of her homegrown brinjals.


Forgetting her planned trip, forgetting about her brinjals, wip ing her tears, she reached the cremation ground following the crowd. On the bank s of the Garur river near the edge of the village laid the cremation ground.

Woo den logs, pieces of sandalwood, ghee, honey, incense sticks and dhuno were alrea dy collected there beforehand. Standing on a heap from a distance, she star ted watching the funeral rites from the beginning till the end curiously. When t he body was laid on the wide and copious pyre, she was moved by seeing the crims on-coloured feet and wished she could run and take a little bit of the alta off the feet to bless herself.

Fire lit by the hands of a son! It is not an easy achievement. The body was covered with many sketches; the top wa s covered with many tendrils. Will you not prepare rice? It is just smoke! She felt embarrassed realizing that she was crying at the cremation ground for a stranger and fearing bad omen for her son; she instantly wiped her tears away. Smoke got into my eyes. You were crying.

The prose style, as well as the humour in these works, were often crass, blunt and accessible. These books arguably portrayed contemporary Bengali dialect and popular society effectively, and also incorporated now-extinct music genres such as Khisti, Kheur and Kabiyal gaan by stalwarts like Rupchand Pakhi and Bhola Moyra.

Books like these have become rarer since the emergence of Tagore culture, and the burgeoning preference for literary elegance and refinement in Bengali society. Tagore dominated both the Bengali and Indian philosophical and literary scene for decades.

He is recognized as the pioneer of modern Bengali drama,"acting as a bridge between earlier and later playwrights in terms of content and style", and even referred to as the "Father of Bangladeshi theater".

Adored by Bengalis both in Bangladesh and West Bengal, his work includes 3, songs, known as both as nazrul geeti and "nazrul sangeet". He is frequently called the "rebel poet" mainly because of his most famous and electrifying poem " Bidrohi " or "The Rebel", and also because of his strong sympathy and support for revolutionary activities leading to India's independence from British Rule.

His songs and poems were frequently used during the Bangladesh Liberation War as well. Though he is acknowledged as the rebel poet, Nazrul very effectively contributed in all branches of literature.

He wrote poems that light the fire against inequality or injustice and at the same time is known for his poignant romantic poems as well. Satyajit Ray is a famous Bengali writer.
