When you pick this version of Tagore's 'Noshtoneer' you will be taken on a journey through a time which is sepia toned. Lopa Banerjee's translation of Gurudev's masterpiece is something that will keep your thoughts lingering for a long time. Her use of lucid language, her perfect depiction of the characters, the ideal portrayal of the settings makes it an unputdownable read. Since I have read the original version in Bengali, I can say that it is a near perfect homage to the creation of Tagore.

Lopamudra Banerjee's book, 'The Broken Home' is a translation of Tagore's 'Nastanirh'. For readers who crave to understand Tagore but are unable to do so because of the language barrier, Banerjee's book is a must-read. Her eloquent and lucid style highlights her impressive and extraordinary command over the English language, as much as her knowledge about Tagore's works. Translating a Nobel laureate's work is no mean task and translated works are often diluted versions of the original. However, ...more

The fluent and vibrant translation enhances the soul of the novella. Charu's character resembles Edna of The Awakening. This unusual story of Charulata is woven with subtle intricacies that echo Freud's phrase 'Riddle of a Woman'. Kudos to Lopamudra for succeeding in conveying the essence of Nastanirh. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it! ...more
