The story is supported by strong and outstanding characters. Many of the social and cultural phenomena present in eighteenth and nineteenth century Bengal, such as the caste system and polygamy, have also found their way into this book. Sunil was born in the present day Bangladesh. He studied at different colleges, all of which were affiliated to the University of Calcutta.

He began his literary career as the editor of a poetry magazine called Krittibas , a magazine he helped create. Gradually, he branched out and engaged with many other publication houses. During his later years, he was elected as the President of the Sahitya Akademi.

Bengali Binding: Hardcover Publisher: Fiction ISBN: About Sunil Gangopadhyay Sunil Gangopadhyay was a novelist and poet. Frequently Bought Together. Moner Manush. I decided that it was the right time for launching my project on Lalon Fakir. In its autumn issue of the Bengali magazine Desh brought out a novel on Lalon Fakir - Moner Manush, written by the renowned literateur, Sunil Gangopadhyay.

Sunil-da's writing filled me with a strong urge to embark on my project. In the end I realised that Lalon stood out as a truly amazing figure in the backdrop of our nation's scenario in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. He seemed to have dropped down like a noor - a spark of divine light from the endless sky into the Bengali society, which then lay shrouded in prejudice and superstition.

Annada Shankar Roy had once written - 'Just as Ram Mohan Roy played an important role in the revival of Bengal, so did Lalon play a vital part in lighting up the minds of the common people with the joy and hope of a Diwali festival.

We are overwhelmed by the enormous impact created by a single individual on the prevailing folk-culture of a country.

The Quest (Script of Goutam Ghose's Film Moner Manush)

The pundits are not in accord about Lalon's date of birth. But judging from the political scenario of his time we may assume that he was born shortly after the East India Company was granted the right of governance of Bengal, Bihar and Orissa.

It would thus appear that Lalon's life had been spent through an important stage of British rule. Radical changes in the land-system following the implementation of the Permanent Settlement had led to the birth of a new class of feudal lords.

And it were these men, who founded the babu culture and remained its staunch patrons for generations thereafter.

With the support of the British rulers they came to be identified as educated middle class Bengalis who thrived with the city of Calcutta as their nucleus. English education and the influence of European authors and scientists had helped a few Indians to unearth certain ancient theories and past glories with the support of foreign experts and thereby raise a spirit of reawakening in their society. But that spirit had failed to gain entry into the non-communal consciousness of the general public.

On one hand there was the ultra-conservative outlook of the illiterate Bengali Muslims, who had been denied the benefit of modern education and on the other hand there was the gross neglect and indifference in which they were held by the Bengali Hindus, who staunchly stood for separatism in religious faiths. These realities posed severe constraints before the Bengali Muslims in taking part in the reawakening.

But then, this reawakening was not an outcome of any joint effort of Hindus and Muslims nor had it brought them in close harmony.

Rather, it had served to make the conflicts, differences and many disparities between the two communities even more pronounced. And thus, even today the dictionary of Bengali language is divided - one dominated by Persian and Arabic and the other by Sanskrit.

The fact remains, however, that Bengali language was originally derived from Prakrit, but had been joined later by Persian, Arabic and Turkish words and eventually by Sanskrit as well, all of which had occurred due to historic reasons. Side by side with the renaissance in the urban population another reawakening was occurring among the people living in the rural and suburban areas of Bengal. This emergence had found particular support in Lalon's practices and songs, which had served to bring the people of rural Bengal closer and united them into a single unit, irrespective of caste or religion.

There were thus no divisions in Lalon's dictionary and a larger and far expanded Bengali language had gained its birth by a mingling of its original version with Persian, Arabic, Turkish and Sanskrit words and expressions. It is heard that Lalon was an illiterate man. But going through the words of his songs and their implied significance it seems as if he was an erudite scholar, tutored in an age-old system of education.

Lalon's religious thoughts used to find expression in his songs, which carried the radiance of a very deep philosophy. His faith was not guided by any particular religion.

Rather, it could be said to comprise the mysticism of Sufi, the love and forgiveness of Vaishnavism and the liberal spirit of the Tantrik sect of Budddhism, which allowed a devotee to act as per his instincts. I am inclined to accept the views expressed in this regard by Annada Shankar Roy who had once said -'The main stream, I believe, is Buddhist liberalism, with Islamic Sufi and Vaishnavism running alongside.

These three streams had united in Lalon's religious pursuit and in his thoughts and actions. In fact, Buddhist liberalism had created a field for religious pursuit since long, which is evident from the Charjyapada - lyrics composed by the liberal Buddhist sect. Lalon's religious quest was undertaken through the medium of human beings.

Lalon's religious practices were not organised in any established pattern, which is why he had been the victim of contempt, vilification and enmity of both Hindus and Muslims all through his life. In the words of Abul Ahsan, eminent researcher on Lalon Fakir - 'Time and again his religion of love had been subjected to reproach and humiliation by the religious Gurus who were well-versed in scriptures and by the then heads of society.

But Lalon had progressed in a calm and composed manner towards his destination, undeterred by any handicap and unmoved by any constraint. Just as a river runs ceaselessly towards the sea passing over all obstacles, so had Lalon Fakir ignored all animosities and moved steadily towards what he believed to be the truth, looking for the single entity which his heart craved for.

Lalon was a seeker of truth, which is why any personal feelings caused by those repeated blows were not reflected anywhere in his songs: The Baul community had renounced all recognised institutional religions and revolted against long-established rites, customs and faiths.

Breaking down the barriers of the narrow confines of communal faith they had found a large expanse under the sky, which had served as a bountiful meeting place of many religions. Counted as one of the principal folk- groups of Bengal, the Baul community composed its own songs, which symbolised devotional lyrics and were aimed to expound the deep mystery of the Baul religious culture to followers and disciples.In fact, Buddhist liberalism had created a field for religious pursuit since long, which is evident from the Charjyapada - lyrics composed by the liberal Buddhist sect.
