partition in Bengal and tracing the rise of Hindu communalism. In its most startling revelation, the author shows how the demand for a separate homeland for the Hindus, which was fuelled by a large and powerful section of Hindu society within Bengal, was seen as the only way to regain influence and to wrest power from the Muslim majority. The picture which emerges is one of a stratified and fragmented society moving away from the mainstream of Indian nationalism, and increasingly preoccupied with narrower, more parochial concerns.

Bengal Divided relates how a large and powerful section of Hindu society in Bengal insisted that their province be divided to create a separate Hindu homeland. The picture which emerges is one of a fragmented society moving away from the mainstream of Indian nationalism, and increasingly preoccupied with more parochial concerns. Muslim League was asking for partition of Bengal. Suddenly, in 1947, the roles were reversed! Why is so? Because of Great Calcutta Killing, instigated by Muslim league.

The publication prompted me to look again at Joya Chatterji's acclaimed work Bengal Divided: Hindu Communalism and Partition, 1932-1947. It also nudged my memory back to a day 23 years ago. I was sitting that day in an adda session and chatting with some senior bureaucrats when the book was mentioned by one of them. On August 26, 2017, DS brought out a special supplement on the1947 partition of Bengal. It contained fine articles on the subject by renowned scholars from home and abroad.

One of the few impartial books not influenced by the narration of West Bengal upper class caste. Simplistic explanations of this division is now assigned to the British and people get away with it. But the truth behind it is the obsession of dominance of Hindu Upper Castes to hold on to the levers of power and deprive the minorities consisting of largely Muslims and smaller number of lower caste Hindus. The writer did a superb job in exploring these complex factors and in elucidating the dynamics. Kudos!

I surprised that author praises muslim league may be the author herself is muslim. If muslim league such a good job to not divide it, why did bengali people asked for freedom in 1971??? why they did not want to be part of pakistan which was created by muslim league???? So the arguments made are such a low level. I don't buy the lies mention in this book.

It was plesure reading this book. Though its not 'easy' to read as the reader has to clear his way through the endless academic jargon. But this book has won at least the hearts of the east-bengalees, the translation into bengali is a testimony to this fact. Yes this book finally talks about some of truth behind the oft-referred 'Banga Bhanga'. This work de-mythified the mystery about that division and the clique that worked behind it - whether for or against it. The 'armchair communal Bhadralok' had a leading role in this historical movement and the fact that these people were definitely communal is an immense truth that comes out of this book. A testimony to this fact is actually added as the lone appendix to the book - the speech by Sharat Chandra Chaterjee. A modern Bengali must find amusement and for sure amazement at the sheer communal calls by this respected and hugely successful early-twentieth century writer. Thank you Ms Chaterji.

Till 1945, both Congress and Hindu Mahasabha were demanding (undivided) Bengal not to be partitioned. Muslim League was asking for partition of Bengal. Suddenly, in 1947, the roles were reversed! Why is so? Because of Great Calcutta Killing, instigated by Muslim league. 1000s upon 1000s people were killed by Goons of Muslim league.

The writer is a Known Communist, and still believes in fantasy. She should answer, why Communist leaders like Jyoti basu had to work in West Bengal, and not in Bangladesh.

If you are into marxism etc you will love it. Otherwise its more of a imaginary fairytail rather than a History book. For any serious student of Bengal history this will be a waist.
