    1. Started off well and kept my interest through six chapters before the lazy style of writing just lost me This nineteenth century tale inspired by Walter Scott s historical romances allegedly has been translated into English from Bengali so I admit that something might be lost in translation regarding the author s style of writing At various points he slips from narrative into dialogue, just giving the initials of the person speaking and then launching into a sentence Whichever style he uses, I d [...]


    2. Durgesh Nandini, translated literally it means, Daughter Nandini of the lord of the fort Durgesh It is considered by many as the First Indian Novel It was written by Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, the writer of the Indian national song Vande Mataram Durgeshnandini is the second novel he wrote, but his first in Bengali.I read the 2010 English translation by Arunava Singh with an Introduction by Shirshendu Chakrabarti, Professor of English at Delhi University, a poet and critic in Bengali.The plot [...]


    3. Great story although a bit predictable and wonderful descriptions that place you right in the midst of each scene The book is essentially a historical romance Although the introduction warns you that not all events mentioned are true to history, I found the historical references interesting and easy to relate to they add an extra spark to the book However, while the book is seemingly about strong women characters, I found that aspect to be quite superficial When you dig deep, the male characters [...]


    4. Ever since i had read some of Bankim Chandra Chaterjee s novels in comic format, I have always wanted to read translations of the originals Durgesh Nandini is his first novel in Bengali and a historical set during Akbar s reign of the wars between the Mughals and Pathans and I liked it a lot BankimChandra was famous for portraying his female leads as valorous and resourceful persons and this novel is no exception.


    5. History and Fiction Mughals,Rajput and Pathans ruling various parts of India,and a love story in the midst.Fast paced and very interesting narrative.It claims to be the first Indian literature novel.


    6. It was a great read There were some parts in which the poetic descriptions seemed overwhelming, but i think it has to do with the translation If i ever learn Bengali, i will definitely have another go at Durgeshnandini in its original form.


    7. At the beginning though I needed to keep my teeth gritted for a little bit of time u know the language is bit classically archaic I could not keep the book away when I got myself inside the novelBankim is a strong writer His write ups are unique.


    8. Great book with several twists I could finish the book in a single sitting After a long time, this is the first book that I read completely in a single sit.History, character, tactics, self respect, care and empathy even among enemies all fill ones heart and teaches to learn from history





    9. Rating is purely based on the horrible translation which completely drowned out the actual story in grammatical errors, made up words and spelling mistakes.
