Book Summary of Ichhamati

Ichhamati documents a period of Bengali culture steeped in caste-based divisions and the life of a rural society living along the banks of the Ichamati River in pre-Independence Bengal.

Summary Of The Book

Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay’s works are usually set in the city of Bongaon, a city in rural Bengal. Ichhamati is one such book that documents the life of indigo planters and their relationship with their Brahmin overlords, plantation life, and caste-based society in early 19th century Bengal.

In this book, Bandyopadhyay unveils the hypocrisy of the Brahminical order in his portrayal of several characters, thereby exposing readers to the social and religious life of rural Bengal under a highly entrenched caste system. Ichhamati continues Bandyopadhyay’s emphasis on the analogous relationship between human beings and nature through his description of the flora and fauna found on the banks of the Ichamati River.

Readers have praised Bandyopadhyay for his sensitive and unselfconscious exploration of the subtle nuances in human relationships and his ability to analyse and organise complex thoughts on the meaning of life in a manner simple enough to appeal to a wide audience. Ichhamati has been described as a deeply spiritual piece of writing with the Advaita Vedanta philosophy, holding particular relevance to the dialogue. The celebrated filmmaker Satyajit Ray is said to have been inspired by Bandyopadhyay’s treatment of dialogue and has adapted several of his books to film.
