This book is an ideal example of garbage. The author had put cosiderable amount of effort to build such a trash! Ranjan Banerjee is supposed to be a wise man, so says the blurb of the book but unfortunately throughout his life he could not manage to go beyond the mere somatic affairs.
Its pity that for whole of his life he has written and translated things related Another Garbage by Ranjan Banerjee. Its pity that for whole of his life he has written and translated things related to SEX but not a single word of them could be remembered by us, also the readers of Lolita or Anais Nin. Anybody who has even little love or respect or even no feelings at all for Rabindranath Tagore should not go for this book. This book is a product of wild and filthy imagination by the author.
The publisher also has not mentioned a single word about the authenticity of the book on the cover. So it appears that it is the original suicide note! Obviously it is just to lure the buyers. Rabindranath was a human being so he did have desires and lust like every other people. So personally I don't bother about all that.
It was his own choice whom he would love or hate or he will sleep with. Love of course does mean sex and that realization is beyond the authors capacity.
What it hurts more that the book was written without any reference or research. Perhaps if author could, he would have mentioned even the coital scenes of the cats and dogs of Tagore's house. Who told the author all this craps? Does love is equivalent to sex? Probably the author himself is confused about the feelings. Nobody still knows why Kadambari commited suicide.
Even the post mortem report could not be found. Author has taken different lines from Rabindranth's poem, simplified them as to serve his purpose and then he had put them on kadambari devi's letter. How amazing! Shame on that Publishing house who published it! I personally would like to request to the author to not to write up such things. It may help him to heighten his erotic desires in morning bathroom but there are some DUMB people who will easily be mislead.

After finishing the last page i understood a lot of things that made me mum for a while Oct 31, Saibal Bose rated it really liked it Shelves: literary-fiction. However in the prologue,throughout the book,or in the epilogue there isn't one there is not a single mention of any credible or incredible source, no reference is cited whatsoever. So I treated this book as a historical fiction.
There lies the beauty of this book. If it is a fiction then except the poetry lines of Kabiguru, which the author uses sparsely throughout the book, one can assume that the writing is the author's own words and not a memoir, and the same writings excellently portray the woes of a girl from a small family hailing from a despicable place married off at a tender age to a rich family with rich tradition and repute, the author through his words display the difficult situation she finds herself in, not accepted by in-laws, not supported by a husband conspicuous by his absence, in love with a person who is destined to move away one day as he does.
The pace of the book is brilliantly set with the protagonist telling her journey from her marriage to her imminent death, somewhat incoherently given her present condition.
All in a all a very good book. However I dont understand why such a world-famous literary figure was chosen for this setting if all this was pure fiction. Truth is had it not been the case I would not have picked up this book. Glad that I did. Mar 14, Sanchari Basu rated it liked it. Can't judge a letter written by a torn soul But it kept me immersed in thought.
Jun 14, Sugata Adhya rated it did not like it. This guy never runs out of his erotic resources involving Tagore and whoever woman came into his life. For a serious reader reading may turn out to be a sheer waste of time. Mar 16, Dipika rated it did not like it Shelves: my-shelf. Finished reading 'Kadambari Debir Suicide Note' a few minutes back. My mind seems peculiarly perturbed by its content. Ranjan Bandhyopadhyay is certainly not a person to engage himself writing a petty carnal love story which concerns the greatest poet and philosopher of all time.

Nov 12, Sriparna rated it it was ok Shelves: bengali , indian-writing , tragedy. It was a short reading, while I was travelling in a bus.
The book is , like the name suggests, a suicide note in an epistolary style. It takes us through a lot many incidents and information about the Jorasanko Thakurbari; their inability to take one of their daughter-in-law as their equal within the so called progressive mindset. Kadambari debi experienced loneliness and was left to feel unloved.
In despair she finally decided to end her after a long time, I laid my hands on a Bengali writing. In despair she finally decided to end her life. The letters also highlight her intimacy with Rabindranath Tagore, her brother-in-law. Jun 01, Sangita rated it it was ok.
