Comments The Fakir


  1. This book is pointless, because there s not enough biographical material on Fakir Lalon to pen a novel about him Apart from his songs, Lalon almost doesn t exist, except as fragments of folk memories That s how he wanted it to be The characters lack flesh and blood, the narrative is drab, the story drags on and on until it screeches to a halt If you really want to get a feel for Lalon, better read his songs instead, or some of the prominent works of research on Lalon.





  2. I bought this book in Kolkata after disappointment in the book stores of Dhaka It is a fable telling the story of Lalan Fakir the great mystic poet from Bengal Not historically accurate but tells of the putting aside of religious divides and building a community of freaks and misfits even a woman who feels list It reminded me of Robin Hood and I enjoyed the familiarity of places and cultural items A nice light good natured read.


  3. The Fakir is a fictionalised account of Lalan Fakir s life While the story itself, interspaced with songs of Lalan sai, is interesting, it s literary style is very simplistic, which adds to the narrative rather than takes away from it I mainly enjoyed the descriptions of rural Bengal and the prevailing customs and religious sentiments.


  4. An extremely interesting book that dealt with the bias existent in religion when it comes to brotherhood and understanding It tells the story of a man who moves beyond religions and creates a community where like minded people could live in harmony.


  5. I read the book after seeing the bengali movie set on the book, Moner Manush Found both fascinating A way of life, that is so utopian Loved the history of rural bengal that runs in the book My first book of Sunil Gangopadhyaya, albeit a translation


  6. Really engagingI also saw a play called Man of the Heart Moner Manush done by a group from Berkeley.


  7. Just wish the book was longer, but the author does say it had been hard for to find enough to write a book and just about did it A wonderful simple story which gives one much to think about.


  8. very insightful and moving book It transfers you to an era where the religion can be to live in harmony Loved the book I wish the poems were also presented in Bengali would have enjoyed.


  9. Not sure what to make of it There was something missing in this book Definitely not what I expected from the book.
