My favourite books – Facebook challenge

books

I have been asked by Jyothi Menon to list my 10 favourite books which have shaped me as a human being. So here goes:

  1. Mahabharat – Upendrakishore Roychowdhury

  2. Kheerer Putul – Abanindranath Tagore

  3. Aranyak/Chander Pahar – Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay

  4. Debi Chowdhurani – Bankim Chandra Chatterjee

  5. Kaalbela – Samaresh Majumder

  6. Sesher Kobita/Ghare Baire – Rabindranath Tagore

  7. Prothom Protisruti/Subarnalata/Bokul Kotha – Ashapurna Debi

  8. Aparajito – Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay

  9. Srikanto – Saratchandra Chattopadhyay

  10. First Person – Rituparno Ghosh

And no… I will NOT stop here… I have many more books to mention…

  1. Feluda Series – Satyajit Ray

  2. Sukumar Somogro – Sukumar Roy

  3. Puraner Golpo – Leela Majumder

  4. Fera – Taslima Nasreeen

  5. The Hungry Tide – Amitav Ghosh

It is futile to even try to list names of your favourite books. You mention one and you are reminded of another. However I tried to limit myself to 15 books. I have not mentioned several other writers like Narayan Sanyal, Nabarun Bhattacharya, Suchitra Bhattacharya, Tilottama Majumder and so many other stalwarts of Bengali literature. I have not even dared to mention books in languages other than Bangla…

I nominate Subham Daspgupta, Sumitash Jana, Yatin Gupta, Raka Majumdar, Madhurima Dhara for this challenge.
