Nirmala - a classic tale of women's plight

What a wonderful narration by Sameer Goswami. There wasn't a moment I felt I need to pause it. The voice modulation was just perfect. It's as good as watching it on big screen. kudos to the narrator and bow down to the master of classics Munshi Premchand!

Dhanpat Rai Srivastava (1880 - 1936)

Premchand was always in the context of a chapter in Hindi literature in school. This is my second Premchand narrated by Sameer Goswami and my mind is already wondering what next. I started Nirmala, right after completing Godaan. Such is the magic of Premchand- Goswami cocktail. I must add here that I wouldn't be able to read a page of Hindi fluently so an audiobook is my only go to for any book not in English, i.e. Bangla and Hindi.

The context of human relationships in a non Tech era, perhaps 80 odd years ago, feels fresh and direct as compared to our self-absorbed and self-obsessed world where, each of us has a tech bubble around ourselves. Its not as wide in its setting like Godaan, but limited to what happens to Nirmala after her father's untimely demise. It's not a book I would read again but one that I will remember.

Hindi classic

one of the classics of Hindi literature. narration is outstanding. it feels like the characters have come alive. The story revolves around Nirmala. the novel describes life of old times, relation between stepmother and children, the burden of a girl child etc. Premchand had mastery in describing the Psyche of every character. this novel had been adapted in a TV series which you can watch online but the reading is much more elaborated and amusing. If you can understand Hindi this one is a must read.

नारीवाद पर सर्वश्रेष्ठ पुस्तकों में से एक।

कुछ किताबें ऐसी होती हैं जो आपको समाज की वस्तिवीक्ता से मुखातिब करा देती हैं। निर्मला उन्हीं में से एक बेहतरीन उपन्यास हैं।

Nirmala feels like my story.

Sameer Goswami did wonderful job. Story which is unforgettable. I think it's an every middle class boy story who's father is womeniser.
