  • A visceral and enchanting saga into the lives of the fishermen of the river Padma. Padma is their lifeline, their mother and father. Their protector and destroyer, she offers plenty and also snatches away in the same manner. You are sucked into this world populated with lush scenery and the mighty river like goddess who is always in the background, controlling the lives of her dependents.The author is successful in bringing life into the mere characters and their livelihood. Forming a close-knit [...]



  • There are apparently two English translations of Manik Bandopadhyay's Padma Nodir Majhi, this one was translated by Barbara Painter and Yann Lovelock, published in 1973 by the University of Queensland Press, as an item in the Unesco Collection of Representative Works. There was an earlier translation by Hirendranath Mukherjee published from Kutub Publishers from Bombay in 1948.


  • পাঠ্য বই হিসেবে পড়তে হয়েছে বলে অনেকটাই মনে আছে। পাঠ্য বই হিসেবে পড়তে হয়েছে বলে হয়ত মুগ্ধতা অল্প; এক চিমটি পরিমাণ কমেও গেছে।


  • পরকীয়া শিখাইছে যদিও জীবনের অন্য একটা দিক দেখিয়েছিল :) পাঠ্যবই হিসেবে না থাকলে আরো মজা লাগতো


  • লাকিলি পাঠ্য হিসেবে পাই নাই। আমাদের পূর্বের ব্যাচ পর্যন্ত ছিল, তাই হয়তো মনোযোগ সহকারে পড়তে পেরেছিলাম! বইটা আমাকে জীবনে প্রথম পরকিয়া পজেটিভ ধারণা দেয় :)


  • প্রথমত, গল্পটি নদীজীবী মানুষদের জীবনযাপনের একটি চিরন্তন কাহন, তাদের প্রান্তিক অস্তিত্ব, প্রকৃতি আর সমাজের সাথে নিত্য সংগ্রাম, পরস্পরের মধ্যে সৌহার্দ্য এবং রেষারেষি, জীবনের থেকে তাদের প্র [...]


  • This book took me by surprise.I was expecting a pretty standard fare of litany and woe,given the setting of the plot (the lives of boatmen).However many of the passages were extraordinarily beautiful,so evocative and haunting.After a while even the river Padma assumes a life of its own,becoming an all pervading presence.A very real entity yet at the same time one that exudes a metaphysical influence on the protagonists.I really liked the way Manik Bandopadhyay writes about the attitude of the co [...]


  • Read this for Bengali 1st Paper in high-school. Feels like ages ago. It's a classic, I believe, and portrays the life of a poor fisherman. There is an interesting love triangle involved in the story as well.I cannot say I enjoyed the book very much, probably because it was school text and our teachers were kind of forcing us to read this one, but I do wish to read it some other time and rate it again!I recommend it to all who love to read Bengali rural contemporaries.


  • Its always a plessure to read Manik Bandopadhay.Padma Nodir Majhi is one of the masterpieces of him. A novel of a ethno-social group is not easy to write. but it had possible because of Manik Bandopadhay himself. Nowadays Writer may right but it had no objectives. but Manik Bandopadhay had a mind of communist , obviously had a class orientation. Which is really missing in many of todays writer.


  • The forward places this novella (I'm told by my Bengali friend that this translation, though better than most, does condense the original)within the "social realism" fiction that was frowned upon at the time of it's publication. If you are a fan of Sinclair or Zola, or if you liked the film Beasts of the Southern Wild, this trip to a village in East Bengal is enlightening and thoroughly engaging.


  • Padma Nadir Majhi ( The Boatman of Padma River) is a novella illustrating the utterly dismal socio-economic conditions and interesting social behaviours of the fishing communities of Padma River. Classic work by Manik Bandopadhyay.


  • I read it years ago when I was in college and don't quite remember whether I liked it or not. This delineates rustic life of rural Bangladesh through the people's sorrows, despairs, laughter and loves.



  • this book is written about the fisherman. who lived edge of the padma river fo Bangladesh. how did they deprived from their basic rights. there were poverty, love and hope.


  • বাংলা সাহিত্য এ মার্ক্সবাদ আর ফ্রয়েডীয় তত্ত্ব দুইটার সমন্বয়ে গঠিত উপন্যাস দুর্লভ নয়, তবে এই বইয়ের মতো সাধারণের চোখে মার্ক্সবাদ -আবেগ -ভালোবাসা -দর্শন উপলব্ধি করে তাকে লিপিবদ্ধ করা বড়ই দুর্ [...]



  • বাংলার নিম্নবিত্ত সমাজের এক অংশের জীবনধারা ও তাদের চিন্তাবোধ-মানসিকতা আর বাস্তবতা খুব সুন্দরভাবে ফুটিয়ে তোলা হয়েছে বলতেই হয়।



  • I fell in love with this country all over again!! What a book! His writing skill is fabulous. Beautiful description of day2day life


  • Read on Higher Secondary as a textbook but own it as a book written based on the lower class people of Bangladesh(Fishermen). A classic book by a classic writer.


  • হা হা হা ইহা আমার পাঠ্যপুস্তক। না পড়ে উপায় আছে কি? আমি জ্ঞান করি, এটা অন্যতম সর্বাধিক পড়া বই। নিশ্চয় আপনারও না পড়া নয়।
