Description

About the Book: Ektara: Strains of a Lonesome String

Ektara is a poignant novel about the struggle of a woman to overcome the crushing verities of life and carve out her identity. It is a Bildungsroman (a Kunstlerroman to be precise) that traces the journey of Debarati towards self-discovery, freedom and fulfillment braving a life that has been cruel and crass. She grows up in a verdant small town. A brilliant student, Debarati falls in love with Hritaban, her first love; later, his rejection turns her world upside down. Spurned in love, she turns on herself and others in silent rage. She neglects her studies. She comes to Kolkata, the big city, to study; she has a string of affairs but glories in spurning her suitors. Grappling with the emptiness within, she tries to make it on her own and fails. Eventually, desperate to find an anchorage, she accepts Neels proposal of marriage. But marriage does not yield love, only humiliation. After seven years of living through a nightmare she breaks free. She leaves Neel. Struggling to eke out an existence by proofreading, writing reviews for newspapers and giving lessons, Debarati finds her mtier in writing. Her first novel is published, but she has no one to share this joy withthere is only solitude to embrace.

An ektara is a one-string instrument mendicant Bauls use as an accompaniment as they sing of divine love.
