They go beyond societal expectations and norms and exercise incredible power and clout over their surroundings even when confined within a narrow domestic sphere. In creating radical heroines in his novels, Bankim not only pioneered a new trend in literature, but was also responsible for creating an image of womanhood that was fundamentally different from the traditional social roles of contemporary women.
It is significant that even after the Great Revolt of , women were not included into the nationalist movement. Men wanted their women to adhere to the gender and domestic practices as spelt out and prescribed by religion. But it was not till the next century that women could articulate through self narratives their dissatisfaction and dissent about the everyday social injustices meted out to them.
The roles that these women play are manifold — a self sacrificing mother, a housewife whose duty is to look after the home and the hearth, or a rebel who does not follow the dictates of her mother- in-law, sometimes an outlaw, and if need be a warrior and fighter on the battlefield.
Bankim counterposes the idealized romantic classical heroines with more active, strong willed and mature women. It was not unusual for western educated people like Bankim who were married to young girl brides, to fantasise a more passionate and intellectually fulfilling relationship.
But the subjectivity of women still remained largely a male construct. It was what men wanted to see in their women. They are replete with qualities that the country required at this point in time — calm and dignified, patient and determined, but a protector and defender when challenged or attacked.
The women characters, Tillotama the daughter of a Hindu chieftain, and Ayesha the daughter of the Muslim rebel Katlu Khan, both come across as heroic figures who face their fate with dignity and determination. It heralded a new era in Bengali literature by its frank exposition of romance and love, and also by its bold theme that dared to transcend accepted religious and gender stereotypes.
Mrinalini , Bankim's third novel was to refute the popular myth perpetuated by the Muslims that the Hindus were easily defeated because of their inherent weakness. If lions were to write the story how would they have depicted men? Men would have been described as insignificant pests, no doubt.
Our unfortunate country is usually weak and submissive, and then on top of it to be portrayed by our enemies! Anandamath is in many ways a reflection of what the author's attitude was towards his own past in relation to the West — enigmatic and complex.
Devi Chaudhurani was again a revolutionary work which successfully portrayed the multiple roles women were capable of. Prafulla, later named Devi Chaudhurani, is thrown out of the house by her father-in-law. A helpless, shelterless Prafulla meets Bhabani Pathak, a well-known dacoit.
Following a path of asceticism, dedication and rigorous physical training in martial arts, she follows the path shown by Bhabani Pathak and becomes the most revered and feared dacoit in southern Bengal. Her elevated position and power enables her to protect the weak and fight the tormentors. The novel explicitly blames the British colonisers for perpetuating terror and suffering and graphically describes the torture they inflicted on the old, the children and the women — stripping the women in public, chopping their breasts and raping them.
The imagery of violence, abuse and rape not only reinforces the symbolism of the land as a woman being exploited by the oppressors, but it also at the same time legitimises the need of the time to combat aggression with militarism. She is the new India — no longer weak and oppressed, but more belligerent, the annihilator of oppressors, a decider of her own fate. The characters like Aurangzeb, Rajsingha, Zeb-un-nissa and Udipuri are historical figures, and so are the battles fought between the Rajput ruler Rajsingha and the Muslim emperor Aurangzeb historically verifiable.
The backdrop of these novels in most cases was Rajasthan or Maharashtra and the characters were brave and valiant Rajputs or Marathas who fought to protect their motherland from the outsiders. To counteract the tag of effeminacy attached to them, the Hindus needed to project a much more proactive, virile and aggressive image of themselves.
The counterpoising of an opposite argument by the Indian intellectuals therefore meant a certain degree of acceptance of the dominant ideology of the colonizers. Instead of finding an alternative framework in which the oppressed would not seem weak or degraded, they implicitly accepted the colonial ideology that the present India was degraded and decrepit and went on to demonstrate that India's past was civilized, glorious and authentic.
Indologists like Ronald Inden 18 have clearly demonstrated the firm influence of western cultural dominion over the mind of the typical elite Indian imagination. Partha Chatterjee has emphasised that the very keywords of Indian nationalist discourse are borrowed Western terms.
Nationalist discourse gets entangled in the skein of multiple and conflicting discursive narratives in which the West remains the praxis for authenticating, validating and establishing the precise definition of Indianness. In identifying the ideological and political categories of the unifying linkages, Bankim was implicitly recognising and incorporating the western concept of nation.
His historical novels that appear to be putting to use the malleability of history actually get caught in the stereotypes constructed by colonial historiography. So Bankim's Krishnacharitra purposely elides the pastoral phase in Lord Krishna's life and focuses on Krishna as the apostle of duty.
Bankim does not dwell on the fun-loving, frolicking, adolescent Krishna who dances with the damsels on the banks of the Yamuna river, but depicts him only in the next phase as a strong, virile, masculine warrior.
Again above that, the body must be strong, healthy and expert in all type of physical exertion. It is to be noted that Bankim admires the essence of Kshatriyahood more than the passive godliness of the ascetic Brahmins.
The valorisation of Kshatriyahood came to be projected for specific contemporary socio-political purpose, which then by extension was made to appear synonymous with Hinduism. Shakti, the primordial feminine energy, in the embodiment of a woman was not new but its potentials were being harnessed for the first time in literature for a definite political purpose.
In India, as in most agricultural countries, Nature has always been associated with the feminine principle, both with its benign beauty and the terrific havoc it can cause; with nourishment, and also with famine and fatal diseases.
The dominant image of the land — dharitri, is that of the nurturer, the all-sustaining land, the provider of food and shelter. Similarly all natural calamities were associated with the female principle, Prakriti Nature. In Bengal, the mother goddess became a potent figuration for Hindu nationalism. She was dissociated from the more rigid ritual practices of the two great sectarian traditions of Bengali devotionalism, the Shakta and the Vaishnav, who worshipped the Kali and Durga respectively.
Both the deities admirably suited the nationalist purpose of the times. The nationalists developed the double persona of the goddess, of the Nurturer and the Destroyer.
She could either be the fair, serene, benign mother Durga surrounded by her four children, or she could be the dark, naked Kali, the tongue- lolling annihilator, a garland of skulls around her neck, dancing in rage, with her foot poised over the prostrate Lord Shiva. Though the children of Harendra Nath did not have direct contact with the outside world, they were quite sensitive to the restlessness going on throughout the country led by Mahatma Gandhi and other political leaders who were ready to sacrifice their lives to bring independence.
Thus different factors were responsible for nourishing the specific culture which guided Ashapurna from her early childhood to youth, and carried her to a definite platform through various experiences and ideals of life. According to Ashapurna, she and her sisters used to compete with each other by composing and reciting poems. This gave rise to an unusual tenacity which inspired Ashapurna to secretly send a poem to Sishu Sathi in 1.
Ashapurna was thirteen and her poem Bairer Dak The Call from the Outside was published, with a request from editor Rajkumar Chakravorty to send more poems and stories. That was the beginning which developed into a never ending flourish for Ashapurna, culminating into a permanent place for her into the realm of Bengali literature.
